Do I need a Perfect Choice HD Ultra for each ear?
The brain processes hearing signals from both ears for improved clarity and a more balanced sound. You will be able to hear much better with two hearing aids; your satisfaction with the devices will be much higher. If you use only one hearing aid but have hearing difficulty in both ears, the brain has to process two different sound and clarity levels, which makes it more difficult to obtain a clear understanding of the sound signal. Although it’s not required, customers with hearing loss in both ears often get much better results by purchasing a Perfect Choice HD Ultra for each ear.
Can I get my Perfect Choice HD Ultra wet?
No, the Perfect Choice HD Ultra is not designed to get wet and should not be worn while swimming or bathing. However, the unit does utilize a nano coating which protects it against moisture like sweat or rain. If your Perfect Choice HD Ultra gets exposed to moisture, it’s a good idea to take it off and wipe it down with a dry cloth.
Does Perfect Choice HD Ultra work for absolutely everyone?
No. Although the Perfect Choice HD Ultra is designed to help a wide range of people with differing needs, it’s not the perfect solution for everyone. That’s why we offer FREE one-on-one personal set up assistance. Our experts can help you set your new Perfect Choice HD Ultra to its optimal settings for you. If it’s still not performing to your satisfaction, they can put you in contact with Customer Service to provide return policy details.
Perfect Choice HD Ultra just isn’t working for my needs. Can I return it?

After you have tried your Perfect Choice HD Ultra, if it does not perform to your satisfaction, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-958-8324 for details on how to proceed with your return.

What sort of warranty is offered on my Perfect Choice HD Ultra?
Perfect Choice HD Ultra is backed by a one year warranty that protects your investment against malfunctions caused by manufacturer defects.
TWO ARE BETTER
Our brains are wired in stereo, not mono, relying on both ears equally to process the sounds around us. In addition, the most common form of hearing loss, age-related hearing loss, affects both ears. Utilizing a pair of Perfect Choice HD Ultras drastically increases the understanding of speech, doubles the radius of your hearing range and quadruples your overall hearing distance.
