Treat your ears and mind to affordable, medical-quality hearing aids you can buy online
We’ll sprint to the salon to banish the first signs of gray. Dash to the dermatologist to zap furrows in our brow. Seek a surgeon to lift suddenly sagging breasts.
But when we start straining to hear our dinner companion over the din in a crowded restaurant, or the dialogue in our favorite streaming series, we quickly chalk it up to natural aging.
Big mistake. Pretending we know what someone is saying to us is not a good look. Worse, untreated hearing loss can lead to cognitive decline, isolation and dementia, asserts the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. Yikes!
Of the 28.8 million Americans who could benefit from hearing aids, just 16 percent of adults under 69 years old and 30 percent of those over 70 have them.
HOW CAN SO MANY SMART PEOPLE MAKE SUCH A DUMB DECISION?
It’s actually an easy question to answer!
Millions of us are embarrassed to admit we need hearing aids, as if wearing them confirms we’re not only older, but weak. Besides, they’re so big, bulky and unattractive.
And the price! Hearing aids can cost thousands of dollars. Think as much as $8K.
What’s more, an audiologist must perform a hearing test and write a prescription. Who has time for that!
HEAR! HEAR! YOU CAN STOP MAKING EXCUSES
Hearing aids today are actually compact, stylish and available in colors that complement our hair. They tuck firmly behind the ears, so someone would have to be nuzzling you to know you’re wearing them. Maybe not even then.
And, thanks to new regulations and new technology, we can now buy FDA-certified, medical-quality hearing aids over the counter – or online – for a whopping 80 percent less than traditional aids.
I’ve been wearing ridiculously high-priced aids since I started miss-hearing words about a decade ago. So I was intrigued to try new Lexie Lumen $799 hearing aids from Lexie Hearing that reportedly would perform every bit as well as my expensive style.
“Our team of audiologists, scientists and engineers has developed the hearing aid technology to put the power in the hands of the consumer,” explained Seline van der Wat, COO at Lexie Hearing. By eliminating costly recurring visits at healthcare professionals, Lexie Hearing can bring its hearing aids to market at exceptional prices.

I could purchase Lexie Lumen in person at stores including Walgreens and Best Buy, or order online, which I did. The hearing aids arrived within a week, along with one of the clearest, well-written, easy-to-understand user manuals that’s ever accompanied a product I’ve purchased.
The manual explains everything you need to know about your new hearing aids: Setting them up; properly placing them in your ears; cleaning and storage; changing the volume and listening environments. The Lexie app also explains through animation how to set up the hearing aids.
When your aids are ready to be automatically programmed to your hearing check results through the Lexie app on your phone, you’re guided through the simple steps. If you’re not entirely comfortable doing this on your own, ask a friend or relative to help. I assure you it’s quite easy to accomplish. You won’t need a computer engineering degree!
After wearing Lexie Lumen for almost three weeks, I can confirm they allow me to hear every bit as well as my uber-expensive model. Everything sounds louder, crisper and clearer. You truly can’t understand what a difference it makes to hear properly again. Think about how you can miraculously read small print and highway signs with your prescription glasses.
Unlike the costly rechargeable hearing aids, Lexie Lumen requires batteries and can’t connect to my iPhone or TV. Considering the massive price difference ($799 V. $7K), who cares?
If you’ve never worn hearing aids, it may take you a few weeks to get used to them. Your brain will be surprised to receive signals it’s been missing, and needs time to again become familiar with the high-frequency sounds of speech and environmental noises.
The Lexie app also gives you access to:
- A team of experienced product and hearing experts six days a week.
- A unique rewards program that guides and supports you as you get used to wearing your new hearing aids and offers discounts on accessories including batteries and domes.
- A library of authoritative hearing-related content.
Lexie Hearing is so convinced Lexie hearing aids will make a consequential difference in your life, it offers a 45-day free trial. If you don’t hear the difference during the first 45 days, return Lexie for a full refund.
No questions asked.
