The Next Level of Ear Health for Severe Hearing Loss

By the time customers come to us for help, we know that they have probably already considered their ear health and hearing loss for about 7-10 years. Even with protective measures in place, hearing loss takes away certain sound ranges, and over time, the ranges expand. While in-the-ear hearing aids and our thin-tube Apollo models do a great job of improving hearing for mild to moderate hearing loss, if hearing loss worsens, it’s time to move to a stronger hearing aid. This is exactly where the Ranger 8700 excels. Value priced with advanced technology, the Ranger 8700 allows people with increased hearing loss to continue to improve their hearing and ear health.

The Ranger 8700 includes a rocker style volume control. For precise adjustments to the volume you can select from 10 volume levels on your digital Ranger 8700 hearing aid. This powerful hearing aid includes feedback management (helps reduce squeal), noise reduction technology (reduces unwanted noise), directional microphones (help you focus on the conversation, not the noise around you), and noise compression technology (increases the volume of softer sounds and reduces volume for sudden loud bursts). This 100% digital hearing aid also has an optional telephone setting so you don’t need to use a loud speaker phone, or take out your hearing aid to have a phone conversation

This high-quality hearing aid was designed by a team of doctors and engineers to meet the needs of our customers who have moved on from mild hearing loss. We tested the Ranger 8700 with customers who were experienced hearing aid users to make sure this next level of hearing aid power improved hearing and ear health. We also understand that cost is a factor, so we developed the Ranger 8700 to be the best value in higher-powered hearing aids. Feedback from our customers has consistently shown that people who tried a Hearing Help Express hearing aid enjoyed a dramatic improvement in quality of life, allowing them to connect with their loved ones and enjoy life to its fullest. Try it at home for 45 days and allow our team of Hearing Health Specialists to walk you through the seamless process of improving the quality of your hearing and life.

  • The Ranger 8700 was designed for someone that is experiencing moderate-to-severe hearing loss. Someone exhibiting this type of hearing loss will notice that they have great difficulty understanding speech. Moderate-to-severe hearing loss can result in an inability to hear a television at a normal volume, or a speaker at an event, like a seminar or church service. The degree of hearing loss is within a range of 41 to 94 db hl (decibels Hearing Level). If you aren't sure of the level of hearing loss that you're experiencing we are here to help. To identify the level of hearing loss you can take the online hearing loss assessment or you can speak to one of our hearing health specialists who are licensed by the state of Illinois as Licensed Dispensers. You can also consider getting an audiogram done by audiologists, or if you have an audiogram you can submit it here

    If your hearing loss is severe you may be challenged with not being able to hear nor understand what people are saying without the use of a hearing aid or amplification.
