What good are my expensive hearing aids

Hi, I'm Valerie.  Having actually dispensed hearing aids in thousands of ears and for many years, I am aware of REALITY.  Let me tell you that veterans, people with physical limitations, seniors, and people with challenging ear canals truly struggle to insert their expensive hearing aids into the canal sufficiently deep.

There are three reasons why people experience difficulty with insertion of RIC-style hearing aids:
