The Fisdemo Nature hearing aid is another model from this fast-changing company. Earlier models I meant to review had disappeared, and the Nature had taken its place. Where the name comes from, I’m not sure of, but perhaps it’s a nod to the green inside of the charging travel case the hearing aids come in.
In the rest of this Fisdemo Nature review, we’ll look past the name and the color scheme, and see how the Nature functions as a hearing aid. As always, I’ll take you through the key features, discuss how the hearing aid works overall, and see what’s not to like. Before giving you a final buying recommendation, I’ll look at some comparable and otherwise alternative models.

The first features you’ll notice when looking at the Fisdemo Nature come with the configuration of the model. These rechargeable BTE hearing aids come as a pair in a rechargeable case, which in turn recharges the hearing aids. The case is equipped with a mirror, which feels like a nice touch.
With the RIC setup, you get better sound than with traditional hearing aids. Or, as Fisdemo puts it, “we can hear crystal and the most natural sound”. Although the Nature is a rather basic hearing aid, it does offer a self-fitting feature and app control with the standard Fisdemo app.
Who is this hearing amplifier for?
Like other models from the same brand, the Fisdemo Nature is made for people looking to get a bargain. The hearing aids aren’t quite top of the line, and the company self seems a little shaky, too (not untrustworthy, but sloppy). So if price is the most important factor in choosing a hearing aid, the Fisdemo Nature might be interesting.
How well does the Fisdemo Nature work?
As I mentioned, the Nature connects to your smartphone with an app. This process is pretty seamless, and from the app you also choose between the four listening modes or adjust the volume. The battery life is a bit short, with twelve hours of usage after two hours of charging. The biggest problem here arises when you need hearing aids longer than twelve hours.
What’s not to like about the Fisdemo Nature?
That battery life. If we take an average of eight hours of sleep, you’d need your hearing aids for sixteen hours a day. With the twelve-hour battery life of the Nature hearing aids, you’ll need to select which four hours you’ll do without hearing aids.
Then there’s the fact that these hearing aids aren’t really Fisdemo hearing aids. Let me explain. Fisdemo doesn’t make or design their own hearing aids, but orders so-called ‘white label’ hearing aids. Then they put their own sticker on it, and sell it as their own. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it means they don’t have the ownership over the product that other companies have.
On top of that, there are little things. I don’t like the typos on the website, or the promise that these hearing aids are almost invisible – they’re just small hearing aids like many others.
Alternatives for the Fisdemo Nature
The most obvious alternative for the Nature is the Neosonic B10, which is the same in a lot of ways, but has fewer features. It does come from a more reputable company. In the same price range, the Go Hearing Prime offers another option, but with a different configuration.
For a better and more comparable model, you’ll need to step up the price category. The Go Hearing Ultra has all the same features as the Fisdemo Nature (and then some), but comes from a better company (and has a better battery life).
Should you buy the Fisdemo Nature?
I can’t recommend it. The battery life is the most obviously thing wrong with this hearing aid, but for $50 more, you’re getting a similar model from a much more reputable company. But as I said, if price is the most important factor in choosing a hearing aid, perhaps the Nature is worth a gamble – and you’ve got 45 days to return it if you don’t like it.
