What Experts Say About Jabra Enhance

When purchasing over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids, customers should consider the pros and cons—especially since they can purchase these products without consulting a hearing professional.

“An OTC [hearing aid] would be appropriate for someone who is able to purchase and fit the product themselves,” says Melissa Schnitzspahn, Au.D., audiology manager at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

She recommends OTC hearing aid products for those who are comfortable setting up and adjusting the devices themselves. A traditional (prescription) hearing aid like the Jabra Enhance Pro 10 is a better choice if the user wants to be fitted by a hearing professional and have continued follow-up and help adjusting their hearing aids, she adds.

Even if a prescription isn’t required to purchase an OTC hearing aid, it’s a good idea to first consult a medical professional to determine whether this type of product is an appropriate solution for one’s hearing loss.

“Consumers often underestimate the amount of hearing loss they have, and an OTC [hearing aid] may not be a good fit for them,” explains Dr. Schnitzspahn. “It’s in the best interest of the consumer to have [their] hearing loss evaluated by a professional to determine if an OTC [hearing aid] is appropriate and discuss if [their hearing] needs and expectations will be met by such a product.”
