Customer service

By Jerry F., Mint Hill, NC, Verified Reviewer

Left hearing aid went bad on 12/04/2020, called customer service and was told it would be replaced. The device has not been received as of 12/23/2020, called customer service and was told it had not been shipped. Eargo has not communicated to me as to why it has taken so long. This is unacceptable and it is unfortunate for me that the 45-day return is up. I should have returned the complete package when the left one went bad. I bet you that if I had ordered a new product and paid for it I would have done received it. Thanks, Eargo, for nothing, except helping me waste my money on a company that went back up their product.

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons




Hard to get devices to charge

App is useless

New to Eargo

By María S., Hendersonville, NC, Verified Reviewer

1) The shipped package says that I have an Eargo_66E1. When I go to help I am asked if it’s a Neo, a Max, or some other name. I can select one to know what’s wrong with mine.

2) The charger consistently charges Left Eargo completely but leaves the Right one with (at most) 2 white lights on.

3) Even placing cell at an angle I got the whistling sound - annoying. I had to take Eargo off to hear the caller well and without the interference.

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons

I have not gotten the itchy feeling I had with my previous Signa hearing aids


I prefer a first session with a live audiologist

Update a week after

By James M., Winchester, VA, Verified Reviewer

I finally received replacement devices today after threatening to return. A pre-paid return label was not sent as promised and the app used to program the devices will not connect to the new charger. The nightmare continues.

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Friendly before, ignored after

By Marvin D., Winchester, MA, Verified Reviewer

Bought the first pair about 2 years ago, held up well until left ear stopped working. Bought second pair about a week ago. Out of the package, the left unit would not retain its charge via lights on the charger, not even one red light, just blackness. After charging overnight, the left unit registered 4 reds while the right had 4 whites.

Is it the charger or the ear aid?

Or both?

These happenings were duly noted in emails to the person I ordered from. I also requested to swap these for a new set with an enclosed return authorization shipping label to send these back, as I had/have no confidence in them.

Silence, deafening silence for the past 4 or 5 days.

On the positive side, these work much better than the ones I had, after another full day on the charger. I would recommend them, but only if you are prepared to be ignored once they have your money. For this dismal and abysmal customer service, I rate them 2 stars. I would rate them much higher if they stood behind their product.

While the customer is not always right, most of the time he/she has a legitimate complaint. Word of mouth advertising is the best, repeat business is invaluable, and a company won't last long if they treat customers like dirt.

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons

Much better performance

Small, inconspicuous, current tech

Customer service after the sale

Being ignored with a legitimate complaint

Pretty good

By Mike H., Olympic Peninsula, WA, Verified Reviewer

I've had these since April and now it's September. It was not that easy getting used to them, mainly due to irritation in the ear canals. You do get used to it though. The boost for me was the ability to keep track of conversations in crowded, echoey meeting rooms. One on one, my hearing isn't that bad yet. Interesting finds: the ear pieces do not always take a charge in the same amount. Many times I've had one dead one and one nearly so. A cleaning (important) and a recharge solve that. The ear pieces and the charger are a work of art. I've also discovered that a retracted mechanical drafting pencil (I use 0.9 mm) tip is exactly the right size to lightly scrape out earwax from the mesh input.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Still waiting on a call back. No money back for trial.

By Karen C., Columbus, OH, Verified Reviewer

The Eargo didn't perform for my spouse as well as expected. Made several calls to return the item. Finally got the return package sent the Eargo back on 1/25/2018. Had not received any monies or contact from CSR. The product may work for some but just not for me.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

They really do work

By Darrell Y., Amarillo, TX, Verified Reviewer

First off, if you have significant hearing loss, consider speaking to an audiologist and getting a set of programmed hearing aids like Beltone or other variety.

If you have mild hearing loss or are just beginning to not hear things in your surroundings or need the television turned up, these might be for you.

The first thing to do is determine if you can handle the in-ear canal hearing aids. Ask for a demo and wear them. If the demo (non-functioning) don't irritate your ear canal too badly, then you are a candidate. It does take a little wear time to get used to them, and the Flexi Fibers (bristles that hold the hearing aids in place) are adjustable (large or small).

Changing volume is strange, but works, simply gently tap your ear while wearing one and the volume changes (a woman's voice says "program 1." Each swat of your ear changes the program from 1 to 4 and then back to 1). I have had people ask me if I'm okay!

These really do work and again, if your hearing is not practically gone, these volume adjusters will work for you. If you have specialty hearing (high end or low-end loss), these might not work, but if you generally need to hear better, these are a good answer.

The charger is great and really holds a charge for quite a while. When the aids battery runs low, you simply pop them into the charger that is conveniently oval and round and fits nicely in a pocket.

Your Eargos are not waterproof so you will need to develop habits that include never washing a pair of pants until you check for your Eargo charger or before you get in the shower, removing the aids first!

They are worth the $2000 price tag. I love mine.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great start, now not so great!

By Charles B., Pennsylvania, Verified Reviewer

I have had my hearing devices for a little more than a year. They have needed to be replaced three times after they just stopped working. I paid $2000.00 up front. Now they are telling me they want $400.00 to replace the one that has stopped working once again. I spoke with Chris in customer service and he seemed irritated and condescending to me. He said I was not cleaning them properly. I have been cleaning them per instructions for the time I have had them. I think perhaps they are designed to make it difficult to maintain in proper working order and they want to blame me and charge me more money. When I bought them I did not know they should have been labeled disposable. So, I am out my money and have one working unit. I am not paying another $400.00 for a disposable hearing device. Think down the road before you buy these units. They are NOT what they are promised to be.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great technology

By David J. Duncan, Lake Frederick, VA, Verified Reviewer

I have tried other hearing aids and hearing devices. The Eargo units are the best so far. I experimented with sizing the flexible tips and found that, just like the directions indicate, the non-large size tips fit just fine.

I am now wearing the Eargo units all day and have to say that I don't even notice them in my ears. Additionally, I want to compliment the Eargo marketing department on the narrative in the owners manual. I have never read an owners manual that is so humorous. It's actually fun to read!

Finally, while congratulating Eargo on its technology, e.g., rechargeable batteries, charging case, flexible tips, miniature size, etc., I want to encourage Eargo to program the Eargo units to reduce more background noise.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Save your money

By Paul D. Bray, West Memphis, AR, Verified Reviewer

I bought this product and had them replaced twice because they quit working. BIG problem. When you hit something with a hammer it will adjust. Not good. I tried to get some help with it and they wanted me to pay $500.00 to replace them for the third time. They just stopped working.

Save your money, buy something else! This is not good, short of a scam! I am NOT a happy customer.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
