Anyone ever heard of Active Ear Aids? A six year old manufacturer from Orem, Utah. I have purchased and will get my over the ear units at the end of November 2006. Is any one using these aids?

I have never heard of Active Ear.
Why not give it a try, though, provided they offer a trial period and guarantee.
Let us know how it works for you.

Administrator-I have the Active Ear Aids. They seem to do what is expected.
I hear the birds singing again. It will take some time to get used to hearing
again. I have to associate the sounds after slowly loosing them. So far I
feel real comfortable with them and can adjust background noises in two
different steps. Normal sound will have to be adjusted some. I am getting
a shrill effect that is irritating. I get it in one ear side. My loss is in high
I appreciate the reply you have made and I will update as I go through the

Thank you for sharing.
Can you adjust the aids to lower the highs slightly?
Sometimes that helps take the tinniness/harshness out a bit.

Admin: The ActivEar has been adjusted 2 db in the right hearing aid OTE.
The learning processes are taking ahold. I am comfortable with the Aids now.
I also found out that the Aids are Assembled by "Precision Acustics" The
outfits makes several brands. ActivEar then does all the programing. I feel
good with this purchase.

Active ear is owned by the Harris's. The parent company is Harris Quest. They also make a product called SportEar, which is how I got to know them. I have had very poor service and support from them. Lots of promises from them and no follow thru. I personally can't recommend them. Don't know about their hearing aids as I wear others.
