Ambidextrous Hearing Aids
Ambidextrous hearing aids are hearing aids that work in either ear. There isn't a designated right or left ear for these to work. They are designed to be used by both people with unilateral hearing loss or people looking to order just one device.
Benefits of ambidextrous hearing aids
1. Minimizes unilateral hearing loss
While some people feel they detect better with one ear and therefore are uncomfortable wearing a device on both ears, it's important to remember that hearing in both ears offers a greater detection range. A hearing aid that fits either ear can use reduces the risk of unilateral hearing loss.
2. Ease of use
Because it doesn't matter which device you use in which ear, ambidextrous hearing aids are easier to use and replace.
Although most ambidextrous hearing aids are in the lower tier of available hearing aids and hearing amplifiers, that does mean these devices are generally more afforable.
Examples of ambidextrous hearing aids
The iBstone K19 is a hearing aid that always comes in a pair. Each device is specifically made for both ears, so that each ear can be independently adjusted to fit the wearer's needs.
2. LAIWEN LP-01
The LAIWEN LP-01 is a hearing aid that only comes in a single, so order two if you want a pair. When you have two, don't worry about which ear to fit them in.
3. Banglijian Ziv-201
The Banglijian Ziv-201 is still a classic, and also an example of an ambidextrous hearing amplifier.
It's important to wear your hearing aids regularly if you have hearing loss. With ambidextrous hearing aids, you can purchase one pair and wear them in either
ear. Where most hearing aids are like shoes and have a designated left and right ear, ambidextrous ones are better compared to socks.

Britzgo 220 Digital Hearing Amplifier Review
Digital hearing amplifiers have always shared similarities in design. These little hearing aids are made to be as small as possible, and colored to match a (surprisingly small and selective) range of skin tones. The Britzgo 220 breaks with these traditions and comes in the color … [Read more...] about Britzgo 220 Digital Hearing Amplifier Review
