They Work (Could Be Better)


The best thing is they work. I can hear conversations well and don’t have to have people repeat themselves over and over.

They are a little tinny, however, that and when I talk, my voice is amplified, which makes me think I’m loud.

The headphones are Bose quality, so for music or talking of the phone, they are very nice. But in conversation, the sound quality is harsh.

High pitched noises are sharp and could be toned down. There is a tone control, but when I move the tone to add more bass, it becomes hard to hear people with high voices.

Overall I like them, but at the same time, there is a lot of room for improvement.


As a follow up, I wasn’t able to keep them. Conversations were very difficult and I could not get over the way I sounded. My voice was loud and I was unable to get over that. Also, I found myself getting dizzy when I was using them, like my balance was off.

After two days I took them back. I wanted them to work for me, but never was able to adjust to them.

Hearingphones by Bose


Having been using this product for just 2 days I have noticed that I can use them for more situations than I originally had hoped for. They behave very similar to a pair of trial hearing aids I tried a couple of years ago (they were more than 10X the price).
This Bose product has more capabilities. I can listen to music or podcasts or stream whatever while still hearing what’s around me to whatever extent I choose to tune it out with precise control. Easy decision to buy. Return policy is very friendly. It’s a no brainer. I already know I’m keeping them.

They defiantly work for hearing enhancement, I just can’t seem to get over constantly trying to adjust them for differing conditions. The App is slow to respond to hook up and sometimes won’t , yet my phone says they are connected, frustrating when your having trouble hearing and can’t immediately adjust the controls. Never like something in my ears but these are tolerable and getting better. Battery life could be a little longer, won’t last all day. I am going to call support to see if they can help me fine tune these things. Not very wearable on a boat as wind noise is an issue. I’m 50/50 right now about keeping them.
