Description And Advantages

The world's first disposable hearing aid has been launched - and experts hope it will encourage more people to address their hearing problems. The tiny Songbird hearing aid has been designed to be thrown away after just six weeks.

This means that users do not have to worry about maintenance, battery replacements or repairs. The US manufacturers say the Songbird hearing aid will cost just £22 a month per ear, but tests show it is just as good and better than some of the latest digital hearing aids, which can cost as much as £1,500 for the initial outlay.
