Walker's Game Ear II HD Pro Elite
I have both 1 & 2, the first one worked well for about a year, then nothing. I only purchased the second, thinking they improved. It works well, but the part that goes in the ear doesn't want to stay, and in cold weather, you almost have to tape it to your ear. Also, hard to replace that part when it gets dirty.

After a severe infection, both of my eardrums were damaged causing significant loss in both ears.
When I heard about this item I was anxious to try it.
1. This item does not help with all hearing loss issues...but it was perfect for mine as amplification was all I needed. I suggest a hearing diagnosis from a specialist before purchasing.
2. Since it is not professionally fitted, I suggest preparing to take time, minimal adjusting to gradually get it to the right fit. The foam and the tubing need to be trimmed to fit.
For some people this might be a real challenge. Help from a friend might be helpful. Once I adjusted mine, I barely notice it there anymore....and it does not 'pop out' at all.
3 The foam covering is difficult to replace..the one that comes with it has the hole already in it but replacements do not. This makes replacing difficult. I am going to contact the manufacturer to see if replacements with the holes already built in are available.
All in all...I am very satisfied with my purchase. Most likely I will begin to save to buy the professional digitally personalized hearing aide in a few years, but this device is serving it's purpose by restoring the joy of hearing on my budget..
For the price I give it a 4 star rating...

Best Purchase Ever
I have now bought three Walker Game ears. I have used a $3000 dollar pair of hearing aids for the last 3 years. I have had to have them fixed or replaced every 6 months during this time. I have used two Walker game ears, only for the last year. One quit afer a year, and I have now replaced it with another $200 game ear. I am hearing inpaired and the game ear works for me. The only down side is that it's more visbile, and I don't have a doctor adjusting it to my needs.
The Walker game ear is more durable and gives me great service for the $$$$$$$.
