What customers are saying

Thousands of happy customers speak volumes

These Sony OTC hearing aids are the most comfortable I have ever worn. They do not itch or hurt my ear, and by using a small sleeve on one side and a medium on the other, they fit perfectly.

Karen Simpson

The C10's are impossible for anyone standing right in front of you to see.

Ben Richardson

After a quick, initial hearing test to personalize the C10's volume, you simply put them in your ear. Your hearing volume essentially doubles, and then you forget you're even wearing them. Simple and effective hearing assistance — just what the vast majority of the mild hearing-impaired population needs.

  • Adjust the volume and sound balance (tone)
  • Troubleshoot and change hearing settings on demand

When you’re not wearing your CRE-C10 OTC hearing aid, like when you take it out before bed, we recommend leaving the battery door open to conserve battery life.

You will need an Apple® iPhone® device (iOS™ 13 or higher) or an Android™ smartphone (Android OS 10 or higher) with the Sony Hearing Control app2 installed to perform hearing aid fitting and volume adjustment.

No, this OTC hearing aid isn't waterproof, so you should take it out before you shower or swim.

The Sony OTC hearing aids are only able to be purchased and set up as a pair.

Your OTC hearing aid will arrive preinstalled with size S (small) click sleeves. If these aren’t comfortable, you can switch to one of the other three sizes provided (XS, M, L). Choose a smaller size if the hearing aid is pressing on your ear or a larger size if the hearing aid feels loose or makes a whistling noise. Also, your left and right ear may be slightly different sizes, so feel free to use different size sleeves in each ear. Check the User Guide or watch these instructional videos to learn how to insert, fit, and remove your hearing aids.

No, this OTC hearing aid will not help with tinnitus.

The battery life on the CRE-C10 is 70* hours or about 5-7 days of normal usage. When you’re not wearing your OTC hearing aids, we recommend leaving the battery door open to conserve battery life. You may want to keep a few spare batteries handy just in case you have to change them on the go.

*Actual performance varies based on settings, environmental conditions, and usage.

Instructions are available in the Safety Manual Cleaning and maintenance (P23-24) or you can watch these instructional videos.
