Hearing Hero is a low-price hearing aid that is marketed as being some amazing product, but is it really? Or is it just another scam product that is going to be a waste of your money?
With all the hearing related scams out there, such as all the tinnitus cure scams that I've reviewed like Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol and shady products like Tinnitus 911... it's no wonder why people are suspicious of this being a waste of money as well.
I first came across the product after receiving an email about it and then decided to look into things further... and I'm glad I did.
There are some reviews you can easily find on Google but the problem is that it seems most of these reviews are just trying to make money promoting the product... which is why I felt the need to write this review of Hearing Hero.
If you are looking for an unbiased opinion of Hearing Hero then keep reading. Enjoy...
Hearing Hero is an affordable hearing aid that offers all the basic features and necessities that you absolutely need in a hearing aid, but lacks in certain areas.
If you are looking for something cheap and basic, this could be for you... although there are some serious concerns I have after conducting my research which is why I'm not recommending it to my readers.
Hearing Hero was supposedly designed and engineered by engineers who worked in the space and aircraft industries. They say that these engineers worked with companies that dealt with "super-high-quality miniature electronics"... making the transition to designing hearing aids an easy choice.
Some of the claims made about this product in the promotional material are that...
BUT, as I'll go over in the complaint section... these aren't all entirely true and you have to take what you hear in the sales pitches with a grain of salt.
Hearing Hero works like a lot of hearing aids you will find on the market.
First there is a microphone that picks up sounds. Then an amplifier makes these sounds louder and the sounds are processed digitally based on settings that you have adjusted. During this process there is also noise cancellation going on to reduce background noise that you don't want to hear. Lastly the sound is transmitted to the ear piece where you will hear it.
Hearing Hero is what you call an 'over the ear' hearing aid... because... well, it sits over your ear. The unit sits behind your ear and then there is a clear tube that runs over-top of the ear and into your ear canal... so if you are looking for something discreet you are looking in the wrong place.
DSP - This stands for 'digital signal processing'. Basically what this means is that the sounds entering the microphone are converted into digital codes and then amplified based on settings made to the hearing aid.
Noise Cancelling - This is a must. They pick up all noise but do not amplify "junk noise", which would consist of wind blowing on the microphone, rubbing, etc.
Adjustable Amp - As is absolutely necessary, you can adjust the volume of these hearing aids.
N & T Options - These are 2 options you have where you can adjust the base and treble sounds. Adjusting this can be good for certain situations. You will likely want to switch between settings if you are in a quite library speaking to someone vs being at a rock concert.
The only adjustable controls you have are the volume and the N & T options discussed above. These you can change to your liking manually. As for noise cancellation and such, this is all out of reach to the user.
At the time of this review they offer a discount starting off at 35% if you order one Hearing Hero. This discount then increases to up to 55% off the more you order.
Obviously buying more gives you the best deal... but who on earth is going to need 5 of these?
This "discount" could just be a marketing stunt. They might never actually sell at "full-price".
*All orders are available with free shipping.
You also have the option of paying an extra $15 for lifetime protection, which means you product is covered under warranty for life. However, I'm a bit hesitant to believe they will hold up their end of the bargain with this offer... and you will see why when I go over the complaints.
While not every hearing problem can be remedied with a hearing aid, a lot can.
Sensorineural hearing loss is the first kind of hearing loss and this is when the hair cells of the inner ear that are responsible for detecting sound are damaged, when the nerve is damaged that runs from the inner ear to the brain, or when there is a combination of both going on. There is no pill or surgery that can fix this kind of hearing loss, but if you still have some hearing then a hearing aid can often remedy this by amplifying the sound.
For those with mild to moderate sensorineural hearing loss a standard hearing aid like Hearing Hero may do the trick. But if your hearing loss is severe then a more powerful hearing aid may be needed.
The other type of hearing loss is called conductive hearing loss. This kind comes from fluid, tissue, or bone that is creating a blockage and isn't letting sound in as it should. This can happen in any part of the ear, not just the ear canal.
This kind of hearing loss can often be treated by surgery but often times hearing aids can still do the trick.
The first thing that you might want to do is check in with a doctor and try to find out what type of hearing loss you have in the first place and ask if hearing aids can help.
*Here is a great article on the types of hearing loss if you are interested in learning more.
No, there is no need for a prescription from your doctor. Anyone can purchase Hearing Hero on their own.
Yes. As soon as you turn Hearing Hero on it will begin to amplify sounds so that you can more easily hear.
However, it will take some time to get used to, as it will with any hearing aid.
This is dependent on what insurance provider you have and your plan, but most times hearing aids are not covered, especially if your hearing loss is not severe.
You are always able to give them a call and find out however, which is what I'd recommend if you are looking to buy.
On the website they state that "delivery will take up to 30 days", as you can see here...
Now they could just be stating that it will take "up to" this long to cover their butts in case something would delay shipment, while normally it could ship much faster, but I'm a bit unsure.
The company is based in New York but there is always the chance they are shipping from some country far away (they more than likely are--I'll go over this).
The return policy (which can be found on the TOS page) is a bit strange. You are able to get at least a partial refund within 45 days whether you have a RMA or not, but the strange thing is that the only way to get a full 100% refund is to have a RMA and return the item between 22-45 days after purchase...
If you return the Hearing Hero in 21 days or less you are hit with a 10% "early return fee"... how absurd is that?
Hearing Hero is sold by a company called TrekFirst, LLC which is headquartered at the address:
56 West 45th Street
New York, NY 10036
They can be contacted via phone or emails at:
All seems good right? They are located in the USA and provide both email and phone support.
The problem is that there is almost no information on this company. They are not registered with the BBB or anything like that and even on their "About" page
they really don't tell us much of anything. Correction: they don't tell us anything.
One thing that is obvious to me is that the company is very small. As listed above, their address is a single suite in a building in New York.
Upon digging a little deeper I found that they are registered in New York and the initial filing date was just towards the end of 2018. So they haven't been around long either.
You can see above that the address they are registered at is different from the address they list on their website. I'm not sure the reason for this but it could be that they changed addresses after registration, which happens all the time.
There is absolutely no proof that I can find of these hearing aids having aircraft-grade electronic parts nor of them being made by a team of engineers who used to work in the aircraft and space industries.
These claims seem like they could be made up... but I have no proof of this being true either.
Finding real, genuine customers reviews proved to be more difficult than I had anticipated. Of course on the website they show a bunch of reviews from people who are praising the product, but I like to look for reviews from more unbiased sources.
I couldn't find all that much, but there were some reviews on HighYa that I came across, and altogether things aren't looking too good.
At the time of me writing this there are only 4 reviews total... and out of these 4 only 1 is positive. To make matters even worse, this positive review (shown below) seems like it could very well be fake. It just seems overly positive and unrealistic...
I've reviewed many products in the past and always look at customer reviews. There is always the problem where you can't trust every review you read... because reviews can be fake. And based on my better judgement this seems like a fake review to me.
It also doesn't even make much sense. The person is basically claiming it's a fix for tinnitus sufferers, but the reality is that hearing aids will not help with tinnitus.
The review shown below comes from a person who received their Hearing Hero hearing aid NEARLY 1 MONTH AFTER BUYING... which didn't give them much time before the trial period ran out.
I guess this answers my concern about shipping times. It seems that the shipping time really can take up to 30 days, which brings up the question... where the heck are they shipping these from?
There also seems to be a bit of trouble trying to get the company to honor their refund policy. The complaint shown below is from someone who attempted a return and it seems that the company kept delaying the process...
*Note: You can also see that the person above claims they are "very large and uncomfortable", which contradicts the claims made of it being comfortable and small. That said, this is expected since not everyone's ears are shaped the same nor are they the same size.
And then the last review was from yet another customer who was experiencing long shipment times.
Overall the customer reviews (the ones that actually seem to be real) don't paint a very pretty picture of this company.
As for the hearing aids themselves I haven't found much negativity. Most of the negativity comes from the company and how they treat their customers.
I do not see any reason to call this a scam, although there are others calling it such.
What seems to me to be going on here is there is a very small no-name company trying to make as much money as possible and they can't really keep up with business. There is a lack of customer support, shipments seem to be coming from oversees instead of the company storing in the US and shipping from here, and so on.
While it may be somewhat of a shady operation and the product isn't as good as it is said to be, I wouldn't call it a scam.
There is no proof that Hearing Hero is as amazing as it is claimed to be. There are no studies proving its effectiveness and no tests comparing it to other more reputable hearing aids.
And... the company lacks reputation.
The main reason to purchase such a hearing aid is because of price. It is cheap and affordable... but... as the saying goes... you get what you pay for.
If you buy Hearing Hero you are getting a hearing aid that...
I will not be recommending this product to my readers due to unbacked claims, over-hyped marketing and the fact that the company doesn't seem very trustworthy.
Don't fall for the hype that these hearing aids are as good as those that cost thousands of dollars. As I've said, you get what you pay for.
My Suggestion: If you are looking for low cost hearing aids then look on Amazon. There are plenty of them that are even lower cost and look more trustworthy.
I hope you enjoyed this review and found it helpful. Hopefully it gave you a better idea of whether or not Hearing Hero is a good choice for you.
Ear Clear Plus is said to target the root cause of tinnitus 100% naturally, but will this really do the trick? Is this really the cure-all that they make it seem to be?
Does Ear Clear Plus really work?
Or is this just another scam that is going to be a waste of your time and money?
The questions of whether or not this actually works and if it is a scam are definitely not out of line. There are many scam products out there being marketed to people who are desperate for a solution to their tinnitus–products that don’t work and are being sold for ridiculous prices.
I’m guessing you are probably thinking the same thing, after all, you are reading my review right now looking for more information on this product.
You probably watched the ridiculous video presentation from “Greg Peterson”, which was insanely long. (If you were able to make it through the entire video, then you deserve a pat on the back.)
The video starts out with Greg talking about how he almost committed suicide on his birthday right in front of his family–and how this horrific event then sent him on a two-year journey that led to the discovery of this natural cure to tinnitus.
The video presentation is filled with a lot of hype and ridiculous claims–which make the supplement sound way too good to be true. Greg acts as if he has come across some newly discovered miracle cure to the problem that is going to work for everyone, which seems a bit suspicious since there are numerous different causes of tinnitus.
Lots of Typical Scam Marketing Tactics
Of course, just like nearly every other miracle cure tinnitus supplement being marketed out there, Greg claims that pharmaceutical companies and the medical establishment are “willing to spill blood to keep tinnitus sufferers away from it”.
I could making a long list of other scammy products I have reviewed in the past that have used this same exact marketing tactic–that of making you think that the entire medical establishment is out to get you and they are trying to shut this amazing new miracle down. For example, the promotional material behind Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol and Tinnitec said the same thing.
Now while I am definitely not a big fan of the pharmaceutical companies and I do agree that they probably do let greed get the best of them quite often, they are not always there “bad guys” and even if they were, it definitely does NOT mean that Ear Clear Plus is the answer.
Not only does much of what is said in the video presentation make this supplement sound like a scam, it also doesn’t help that “Greg Peterson” is probably a fictitious character that was made up just to promote this scammy product…
As you can see below, the image that was shown of him in the video presentation is actually a stock photo…
But enough about the video presentation let’s move on to the actual review of this product and talk about whether or not it is going to work…
Overview: Ear Clear Plus is a 100% natural supplement that is intended to treat tinnitus.
The supplement’s success is based on a “newly found” cause of tinnitus that has to do with damaged in the synopsis of the brain, which leads to faulty connections in the brain and causes tinnitus among other problems.
It consists of a concoction of different natural ingredients that supposedly help treat the root cause of the problem, and is not just supposed to help lessen the severity of it as many supplements do.
The Different ingredients included are:
This supplement contains a long list of very different ingredients that are intended to attack the problem from multiple angles, such as by helping to calm the nervous system, detoxify the body, improve neural connections, boost the immune system, along with many of the ingredients having good anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties–which are good for pretty much any health problem.
Sounds good and all, but will these really do the trick? I mean–let’s be honest here– green tea, vitamin C, vitamins B6 and B12, niacin, garlic… most people are probably very familiar with these ingredients and many probably consume them adequately on a regular basis–AND STILL HAVE TINNITUS!
Olive leaves, hawthorn berries, hibiscus, buchu leaves, juniper, and uva ursi are the only “somewhat unusual” ingredients on the list and unfortunately there is definitely NOT any strong evidence suggesting that these are going to be the miracle cures for the condition.
But then again–the mainstream medical establishement is trying to cover this all up, right? They are “willing to spill blood” to keep this all a secret according to “Greg Peterson”.
Unfortunately there is very limited information that I have been able to find on the ingredients in this supplement. In fact, the ingredients that are listed above came from the video presentation. I have not been able to find an official list by the company or anything like that.
Additionally, we have absolutely no idea how much of each ingredient is actually in the supplement. For all we know, it could be made of 99% “filler” ingredients and only 1% of the ingredient mix listed above.
Just as expected, the price you will have to pay to get your hands on a bottle of this is pretty ridiculous–which is to be expected since this seems to be another supplement being marketed to those desperate for a cure.
The price varies depending on how many bottles you purchase. If you purchase three bottles you will get each one for the price of $59, but if you purchase six bottles you’ll get each one at a price of $49 a piece.
Awesome–all that money and you don’t really even know what you’re getting.
I don’t know about you, but when it comes to supplements and things that I am putting in my body, I want to be darn sure that the company manufacturing them can be trusted.
Unfortunately, there is absolutely no reason to trust the company behind this product, which is “Alliance Health”.
Above you can see the logo for this Alliance Health company. The reason I put it there is because there seem to be several different companies with the same name–and of course this one in particular has virtually no background information.
I have not been able to dig up any information of value regarding this company–and I definitely DO NOT trust them.
While there is some scientific evidence that the ingredients included in this supplement can help facilitate the repair of neural connections in your brain (very limited and not concrete by any means), and this can potentially help with tinnitus, saying that it is going to cure the ringing in your ears in just a few weeks is one heck of a bold statement to make–and one that I definitely do not believe.
Ear Clear Plus seems to be another overhyped product that is just going to get a bunch of people’s hopes up and then let them down–having wasted money and still have the problem they were trying to fix in the first place.
While there is some possibility that this supplement could help with tinnitus, it is definitely not something I will be recommending to my readers.
I hope you enjoyed this review and found it helpful. Please share this post to help spread the truth–the real truth.
Also, leave any comments or questions below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
If you suffer from tinnitus and are looking for treatment you have to be careful with what you buy into. Tinnitus cure scams are running rampant online and, although I am doing my best to expose the scams and warn people, unfortunately a lot of people end up wasting their money.
There seems to be a lot of scams in this particular market. It is probably because it is easiest for scammers to prey upon desperate people. Tinnitus can be one heck of a condition to deal with and many people are willing to try just about anything to get rid of it, and I completely understand that.
In this short article I want to help you avoid the scams. I'll be going over different types of tinnitus scams I have come across, warning signs that you can look for, tips to avoid these types of scams and more.
But first let's talk a little bit about what exactly tinnitus is in the first place…
In most cases tinnitus is the perception of noise or ringing in the ears. This means that the noise doesn't actually exist, but your body is for some reason perceiving that there is a noise, which is usually ringing, buzzing, hissing, humming, etc.
You might be surprised to hear that tinnitus affects about 15-20% of people, according to MayoClinic. Now that is a heck of a lot of people, but the majority have very mild cases and it really doesn't bother that much.
Since you are looking for treatment then your case is probably to the point where it is hard to deal with.
Types of Tinnitus:
There are 2 types of tinnitus that exist, subjective and objective.
Subjective tinnitus is caused by problems in part of the ear or sometimes with the auditory nerves, or even sometimes by the brain and how it interprets signals of sound.
Objective tinnitus has to do with problems in the blood vessels, and this type doctors can actually hear when performing an examination and listening carefully.
So on the one hand you have tinnitus where you hear sounds that don't actually exist, and on the other hand you have tinnitus where there actually is a sound and the problem comes from the blood flow.
The problem with tinnitus, for one, is that it is not very well understood and because of that there aren't any treatments out there that are as effective as we would like to see and that are going to work for everyone.
While it can be treated to some extent, and some people respond much better than others to treatment, it is somewhat of a hit or miss. As I said, it is not very well understood and the fact that there can be many causes makes it more difficult to treat.
Most of the "scammy" tinnitus cures I have come across have been natural cures.
Mostly they consist of supplements, but I've also came across some "protocols", published as e-books, that basically tell you what food to buy in order to cure your tinnitus.
Some of the different "scammy" supplements that I've reviewed on my site here include things like…
And some of the "protocols" that you may or may not have heard of include…
Usually these types of natural cure scams are promoted as being the greatest things ever, usually as some "hidden secret" or something along those lines.
Much of the time they try to scare you into purchasing their product, such as by talking about all of the nasty side effects that prescription medications can have.
A lot of these scams are promoted as "cure all" products. But, since there are many causes of tinnitus, how can one supplement or protocol be the cure to everything?
Now I will say that many of the supplements out there have a wide range of herbs. They are basically a big concoction of herbs that can potentially attack tinnitus from multiple angles, but generally speaking you are not going to find a single treatment that works for everyone.
So if it sounds a little bit too good to be true, and sounds like it can cure the problem for anyone, proceed with caution.
A lot of these tinnitus cure products are promoted with crazy background stories. Many of them feature video presentations where the spokesperson will talk about how they "nearly died" due to their tinnitus, and then went on a lifelong mission to finding a cure.
If the story sounds absolutely ridiculous, maybe is completely made up. A lot of times it is hard to prove such stories false, but I have noticed that they are often used to market scammy products.
Have you come across a cure that is some "ancient secret" or maybe some "hidden secret" that has just been unearthed for the first time in centuries? Yeah… That is probably just another lie.
A lot these "secret" tinnitus curing formula supplements that I have come across have supposedly been found in some remote part of the world, or maybe in some ancient text. But usually it seems that this type of sales pitch is just another lie to get people to buy in.
There are also many products being marketed in a way that paints "big Pharma" to be the bad guys. Often times you hear that "the pharmaceutical industry doesn't want you to know this" and "they might put an end to this at any minute".
They also often make it seem like the pharmaceutical industry is trying to cover up all of the truthful information because they don't want your problem to you away, so that they can keep making money off of you.
However, claims like this are often completely un-backed and unproven. This is a typical fear mongering sales approach to scare you into buying the product as fast as possible.
*And by the way, I am not a big fan of the pharmaceutical industry and make huge fan of natural health alternatives. But unfortunately many of these "natural cures" are scams.
When you come across a potential scam also take notice of the prices. Many of the scammy products I have reviewed act as if there is some huge discount going on.
As an example, they will say you can get 1 bottle for $69 or get 5 bottles for $39 a piece, which would be $195 total.
Now of course buying them in bulk, buying the more expensive 5 bottle deal, gets you the lower price, but is also a heck of a lot more money to spend.
And you may ask yourself… How is this even possible? How can they give such a massive discount? Well… The answer is pretty simple… The product was massively overpriced to begin with.
Now all of those "warning signs" that I just talked about above do not necessarily mean that something is a scam. They are just "signs" that should alert you to proceed with caution, because something could very well could be a scam.
They are red flags I have picked up on having reviewed many such scams over the years.
Just be careful and ALWAYS DO YOUR RESEARCH.
Some of the sales pitches can be incredibly convincing and you may want to go out and purchase whatever it is right away, but always take the time to do a little bit of extra research on your own.
Do a Google search. See what others have to say about the product.
But you also have to be careful with this. You cannot trust every review out there that you find on Google. Based on my experience, there are many more fake reviews than real ones. The fake reviews are written of course because they want to promote the product and make money.
Now something else that you should be aware of is that many of these "scammy" cures that I'm talking about are not complete scams.
They often consist of a concoction of natural ingredients that can potentially treat symptoms of tinnitus. HOWEVER, the main problem with them is that they are marketed in very misleading ways and lead people to believe that they are going to miraculously cure them, and of course they are also usually overpriced.
Now if they were marketed in an honest way that did not give people false hope, and if they were priced appropriately, I would probably have no problem with them.
So what you should take away from all of this is that there are lots of scammy products out there that have some potential to help but are not nearly as great as they may seem. So just be careful and know what to look out for so that you can avoid these sorts of products.
Take care and be sure to leave any comments or questions down below. I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
Welcome to my review of Tinnitec!
Does this stuff really work or is Tinnitec a scam? This is the big question that needs to be answered before buying into something like this. I'm sure you have seen your fair share of scam supplements out there, just as I have, so you know that you have to be careful what you buy.
In this review I'll be going over what exactly Tinnitec is, the ingredients and if they actually work, the cost, complaints and more so that you can make a more informed decision as to whether or not you should buy it.
A 100% natural supplement that can cure even chronic cases of tinnitus within days?? Can it really be true?
I'm sure I'm not the only one that was thinking that this sounds a little bit too good to be true after watching the video presentation.
There or several different presentations out there. Two that I came across look like this…
The guy that supposedly created this supplement is named Anthony Romano, as is shown here...
He claims to have discovered a 100% natural and "proven" method to beating tinnitus, and it can "have soothing tinnitus relief FAST"… Within just a couple of days.
We are also told that it "works like nothing you've used before"... But it seems like just about every promotion for supplements out there tells you something like this.
You are reading this review now I am guessing this is because you were suspicious that this could possibly be a scam. I was as well. There were quite a few red flags I came across which seemed a bit "scammy"…
First off, they tell you that "big Pharma" doesn't want you to have this because it gets to the root cause of your tinnitus. They lead you to believe that "big Pharma" doesn't want you to get better because they want to suck every penny out of you that they can.
They also hint that the pharmaceutical industry has been hiding the truth from us… And even say that they will likely try to take down this presentation off of the web.
Although I am a big fan of natural health supplements and do not really agree with many of the things "big Pharma" does, I don't believe what they're telling us here.
I see no proof that the pharmaceutical industry is hiding this information from anyone and I have heard this sort of "big bad Pharma" sales pitch before with other scams I have reviewed in the past, such as Diabetes Destroyer and Memory Repair Protocol. It is typical fear mongering. It seems that they are just trying to scare us into buying into this supplement.
But anyways… Enough about the sales pitch… Let's talk about the actual product and see whether or not Tinnitec actually works…
Tinnitec is a 100% natural supplement sold for the treatment of tinnitus similar to Tinnitus 911 and Ring Ease, which I have reviewed in the past. It consists of a mixture of 20 different ingredients.
While it definitely does have some potential to improve tinnitus and overall health, this is something I don't really recommend all that much just because it is rather expensive and I do not like how it is being marketed, in a very misleading way.
Of course if we really want to know whether or not this stuff works, we have to take a look at the ingredients. As mentioned, there are 20 in this and they include the following…
Now obviously I did not list all 20 ingredients. The reason for this is because I CAN'T FIND THEM ALL. I have searched all over online and cannot find all that much information, besides that listed above.
This is unfortunate but we will do with what we have.
Below the video presentation I noticed a bunch of "scientific references" that supposedly "prove" that Tinnitec works...
HOWEVER, they definitely do NOT offer concrete proof that this is going to work. Most of the "proof" is theoretical, and while "could" be true... there just as in any hard proof of it being so.
I took the liberty to look up some of the studies they have listed and below I briefly summarized them so you can see what their findings were…
It's still mostly theoretical
There is far from concrete evidence proving that Tinnitec is going to be some magical cure for tinnitus.
Also, did you see listed above that the one study they referenced was performed on fruit flies? Yes… On fruit flies.
Now I have no problem with animal studies, such as those performed on rats and mice, being referenced because rats and mice are both mammals that are very similar to humans. However, fruit flies are incredibly different and I can't believe they even mentioned the study. It is very irrelevant.
But anyways... The "proof" I see here is pretty disappointing. This concoction of 20 natural ingredients definitely has potential, and definitely can benefit your health, but it seems that this product is over-hyped.
Much of the focus in the video presentation was on dopamine, which scientists believe may help with conditions like tinnitus. Tinnitec "may" be able to have some benefit in this area.
Potential = Yes
Proven by hard science = No
The cost of Tinnitec depends on how many bottles you purchase. The more you purchase, the better deal you get. At the time of me writing this the options are…
It is pretty expensive, but the good thing is that they do have a 100% moneyback guarantee, no questions asked…
Now how difficult or how easy it is to actually get your money back is something that I do not know. But this money back guarantee still offers some comfort.
The fact that this is all natural is definitely something that I, along with many others, like. Just because something is natural doesn't necessarily mean it is healthy, but generally speaking this does seem to be the case many of the times.
Also, there aren't really any side effects you have to worry about. Sure, you should definitely consult with your doctor before taking anything like this, but most people aren't going to have any problems.
Can Potentially Help from Many Angles
There are many different ingredients that work in many different ways. This is nice to see because there can be different causes of tinnitus that may respond better to different treatments.
The product is definitely marketed a little bit over-the-top. It is marketed as some "miracle cure" that is going to magically cure anyone's tinnitus, but I highly doubt that it will actually work like this.
Obviously it is pretty expensive. I think that is a downside for everyone.
Not Very Transparent
As I went over earlier, I wasn't even able to find a complete list of the ingredients.
You would think they would make this information easily available, but I guess not.
Also, I have no idea how much of each ingredient is included in the bottle. Dosage is important if you want certain ingredients to work as well as possible, so I guess we just have to trust that they put in the right amounts.
I would not call Tinnitec a scam, but I also would not say that it is as great as many people are claiming it is. You have to be careful with what you read on the Internet. I have found many fake reviews out there that just promote it as the greatest thing to have ever blessed this earth, which is not.
Will it work? It could potentially have some positive effects, but I certainly am not going to guarantee anything and there is definitely not concrete proof that it will work. But yes, it could have some positive effects.
Anyhow... I hope you enjoyed my honest review and found at least somewhat helpful. If you do want to purchase Tinnitec you can do so on the official website here.
Take care. And if you have any comments or questions just leave them below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
Hearing X3 is a natural supplement that can supposedly drastically improve hearing problems, or at least that is what they say. But can it really? Or is this just another scam product that is going to be a waste of your money and leave you disappointed at the end of the day?
There or so many scammy supplements out there dealing with hearing loss, like Ring Ease and Tinnitus 911 for example, that this is a question that definitely needs to be addressed, which is why I am writing this review right now.
And it’s no wonder that you are probably wondering the same thing… Asking yourself whether or not Hearing X3 is a scam?? I mean, the product is promoted in a “cure all” way that just seems a little bit too good to be true.
Can Hearing X3 really be the miracle cure that you have been waiting for?
The answer: probably not.
And you will see why in this review.
But first let’s talk a little bit about the sales pitch.
Above you can see a picture of what the video presentation looks like, which you may or may not have seen. It is a ridiculous 35 minutes in length and if you made it through the whole thing then you deserve a pat on the back.
The spokesperson in the video starts out by saying that age is not the reason for hearing decline, but rather it is the result of damage to the inner shield of your ear.
He tells a story about some guy named “Greg” who was a grandfather whose life was really going downhill with the decline of his hearing. It led to worse relationships with his wife, kids and grand kids, and even almost led to his house being burned down because he couldn’t hear the smoke alarm.
But who knows if the story is actually true or not. I review somewhat “suspicious” products like this all the time and they are often marketed by lies and misleading false stories.
Everything You’ve Heard Has Been Wrong..
Of course in the sales pitch they tell you that everything you have heard about hearing loss has been wrong… And of course, they have the real cure to it all…
Statements like this are pretty common. Of course, they want you to believe that they have the right answers so that you buy their supplement that they promote, which in this case is Hearing X3.
It’s All About This One Nutrient
Apparently the reason for people’s decline in hearing these days is because of a lack in some lone nutrient. The guy says that our parents used to get enough of it but with all the food engineering that is going on nowadays, this nutrient isn’t found enough in foods anymore.
Well… actually it’s about a bunch of nutrients..
He led you to believe that is just a single nutrient, yet he then rattles off a bunch of nutrients that are the key to improving your hearing, these include…
And all of these “key” nutrients are included in the supplement Hearing X3.
But anyways, let’s get on to the meat of this review.
The promotional video is obviously a bit over-the-top and makes this whole thing sound too good to be true, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is a scam.
Let’s take a look at the supplement itself and see whether or not it has potential to improve hearing…
Hearing X3 is a natural supplement for hearing loss. It sells for around $49 a bottle and is the creation of Dr. Ryan Shelton from Zenith Labs.
While the supplement definitely is over-hyped and isn’t going to be the “cure all” that is claimed to be, is still is something that could potentially have some positive effects on hearing loss, as I will explain in more detail later.
Who Is Dr Ryan Shelton?
Dr Ryan Shelton is somewhat known for promoting these sorts of over-hypes products. In fact, I have reviewed another product of his called Diabetes60 System in the past.
That said, he is a doctor in traditional medicine and alternative medicine, so he is who he says he is. In particular his main focus seems to be on natural anti aging remedies, such as this Hearing X3 supplement that can supposedly help reverse the decline in hearing that is often associated with aging.
I don’t know if you can read the label, because the print is a bit small in the picture, but what you need to know is that this contains a bunch of ingredients, 15 in total.
However, I’m not going to be going over all of them. I’ll just go over some of the “key” ingredients that are supposedly most responsible for this supplement’s ability to cure hearing loss.
Ginko Biloba (100mg) – This is something I’ve seen in other hearing supplement’s, including those for people with tinnitus. In fact, it has been shown to be somewhat effective against tinnitus in studies.. It is thought to increase blood circulation in the inner ear which plays a role in hearing loss in some cases. A 100mg does seems to be appropriate although some studies I’ve come across are taking around this amount twice per day.
Resveratrol 50% (40mg) – This powerful antioxidant has been shown to have a protective effect against noise-induced hearing loss. So if your hearing loss is the result of loud noises, this may help. A 2003 study suggests that this is due to its antioxidant profile and ability to protect the auditory system from reactive oxygen species.
This compound is found in high amounts in red grapes and red wine.
Gotu Kola Extract (50mg) – This unusually named ingredient has been shown to potentially have a modest ability to protect brain cells. I wasn’t able to find any good information about it improving hearing loss in particular, but there is some information suggesting it can increase blood flow which could be of help.
Folate (500mcg) – Low levels of this vitamin may be associated with an increased risk of hearing loss. The reason I say “may be” is because there is research that has shown the opposite as well. A study I came across in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded that a poor intake of this vitamin “may be associated with age-related auditory dysfunction” yet another study I came across that is more recent suggests that a higher intake of folate “does not reduce the risk of hearing loss”.
The big problem here that I see with this supplement is that there is a severe lack of evidence that any of these ingredients listed above are going to have significant positive effects on hearing loss.
Yes, there is “some evidence” that suggests they could improve hearing, but there are no groundbreaking studies on any of them, not by far.
In the research that I have found done on these ingredients there is a lot of wording like “may improve “, “is thought to improve”, and so on. There isn’t any concrete proof that these “will improve” hearing.
Now I would be completely fine with this if the product was marketed in a less “scammy” way. Instead it is marketed as some sort of miracle supplement that is going to cure everyone’s hearing problems no matter what they are. And unfortunately this is going to lead to a lot of very disappointed customers.
I’m all for trying out natural healing remedies and supplement’s like this, but you need to know the truth. The truth is that this is definitely not a cure-all supplement. There are so many different reasons and causes for hearing loss and this certainly isn’t going to work for all of them.
I hope this review gives you a good idea of what you are looking at here. I wanted to provide as unbiased information as possible and tell you the truth of the matter. Yes, you could see improvements while taking Hearing V3, but this just isn’t as amazing as it is often promoted as being.
There or a lot of fake reviews out there that mislead people into buying this, which is one of the things I noticed as I was doing my research. You can’t trust everything you read online unfortunately.
I hope you found this information helpful! leave any comments or questions below and I’ll get back to you soon 🙂
Tinnitus 911 is said to be a "cure all" to tinnitus, but is it really? Will this supplement really perform miracles and get rid of that annoying ringing sound in your ears... or is true what some people are saying... that Tinnitus 911 is a scam?
They say that 90% of tinnitus treatments out there do not work, but will this one finally do the trick? Is this the treatment you have been waiting for like they tell you?
Well… In this review I'm going to be going over everything you need to know about this particular supplement. Will it work? It might, it might not. There is no doubt that this is a very overhyped product that isn't the miracle is claimed to be, however there are some upsides to it and some users will likely see positive effects after taking it.
In this short review I'll cover what exactly it is, some of the claims made and red flag is raised, I'll go over each of the ingredients, what real users are saying about it, complaints and more.
So as you are probably already well aware, Tinnitus 911 is a supplement that is intended to treat tinnitus.
What is tinnitus? It's is something else you are probably well aware of, or at least I would assume so, but it is a condition that involves ringing in the ears when there is not any auditory sound present. Basically it is your ears playing tricks on you and in some cases can be incredibly hard to deal with.
The reason I am reviewing Tinnitus 911 in the first place is because there are very bold claims made about this supplement. It is promoted as a sort of "cure all" and this is very hard to believe since tinnitus can have many different causes.
Overall, based on my research I think that this supplement does have the potential to work for some people, but it is not something that I am recommending and you will see why throughout this review.
There are probably several different video presentations out there promoting Tinnitus 911. Maybe you came across one or maybe you didn't.
The promotional video I came across was presented by some guy named "Charlie Gaines" who supposedly suffered some tragic story about how he lost everything and then stumbled upon some 100% natural cure to tinnitus. He tells you that everything in the story is true, but this is a lie in of itself.
I'm not going to discuss the entire sales pitch and everything that was said in the ridiculously long video presentation, but basically he claims that this 100% natural cure you came across works flawlessly and can even work with in a few days.
Also, in addition to fixing your tinnitus problem, it also reduces or even eliminates degenerative brain problems such as dementia.
But as I said, when he tells you that the story is true he is lying.
There are a heck of a lot of red flags throughout the promotional video and if you watch to yourself I am sure you agree with me on this. It just seems a little bit too good to be true and is definitely a bit unbelievable.
Also, I did some thinking around and found out that "Charlie Gaines" himself is actually not who he says he is. I've reviewed similar overhyped products with ridiculous sales pitch is in the past, so I knew what to look for. I ended up doing a reverse Google image search for the man showed in the video presentation and found that is actually nothing more than a stock photo that anyone can purchase online…
In other words, this is NOT "Charlie Gaines".
After figuring this out for myself, I found that they actually tell you this in the disclaimer at the bottom of the sales page. As you can see below, they actually tell you that Charlie Gaines is just a pen name…
So what can you believe and what can you believe? Or the ingredients in this supplement even going to do anything for you?
Well… Let's take a look…
You can see a screenshot I took off the ingredient label below…
Will these ingredients fixture tinnitus once and for all? I'll go over each of them individually… One thing you will notice is that pretty much all of these ingredients are packed with antioxidants. This is good because tinnitus is sometimes caused by damaged structural and functional cellular components due to free radicals, which antioxidants fight against.
While most of the ingredients included in this supplement are either proven to work to some extent, or at least have potential, this is not the "cure all" miracle supplement that is promoted as.
One thing that you have to realize is that many people, who are suffering from tinnitus, are already benefiting from many of these ingredients. Vitamin C, vitamin B6, niacin, folic acid, vitamin B12, garlic, and green tea are all things that many people probably already get enough of… Yet you still might have tinnitus. So what's the deal?
I'm not saying that this supplement is not going to work, but I am saying that it is overhyped and isn't going to be a sure way to cure tinnitus.
Luckily there aren't really any side effects that are going to have to worry about. This is a 100% natural supplement and there are no "crazy" ingredients included that are going to make your body wonder what the heck is going on.
All in all, this is a very mild supplement.
Of course I do have to say that you should always talk to your doctor first before taking something like this however.
What are people who have actually taken the supplement saying about it? Are they all saying that it has cured there tonight is in that is the greatest thing ever?
Unfortunately… The answer is no.
This supplement is actually sold in a number of places, including on Amazon. On Amazon I skimmed through the reviews and found that many people are saying to avoid it, calling it things like a scam and an "expensive hoax"…
There are some people that claim that has worked for them, but all in all… The reviews are not that great on this product.
Which brings me to my next point… Beware of the fake reviews!
I came across quite a few different fake reviews out there claiming that this is the greatest tonight's cure to ever exist. However, the people making these reviews are just promoting it so that they can make a quick buck.
Take for example the YouTube video I found below. The woman in this video claims that Tinnitus 911 is the greatest and that it cured her tinnitus, yet she is actually a paid actress that is available for hire on the website Fiverr (a digital freelance marketplace)…
And this is just one example… There are plenty more out there.
Is it a scam like some of the other tinnitus products I've reviewed?... like for example Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol?
I would not call Tinnitus 911 an outright scam, because I do believe it has the potential to work for some people. It is packed with a lot of good ingredients that are very high in antioxidants among other things that could possibly have a positive effect on tinnitus.
The "scammy" part about it all is how it is being promoted. It is promoted in a very misleading way and giving people false hope. That is why I am warning people about it. It depends on how you look at things but in some ways this is a scam in my opinion.
Not only do I not really recommended because of the deceptive promotion going on for this product, but it is also rather expensive and without a doubt overpriced.
For example, on the official website it costs $69.95 for one bottle, but when you order four bottles the price per bottle drops down to $49.95.
How is it even possible that they have this much room to move the price around… Dropping it down from $69.95 to $49.95? The answer is that it was massively overpriced in the first place.
That said, if you are desperate and want to give Tinnitus 911 a chance and see if it works for you, you can purchase Tinnitus 911 on the official website here.
I hope you enjoyed my honest review and found it helpful. Please leave any questions or comments down below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
Ring Ease is supposedly some miracle cure for tinnitus… Or at least that is what they lead you to believe. But is it really all that great? Can this 100% natural supplement really "quickly and permanently" cure your tinnitus like you are told? Or is it possible that Ring Ease is a scam that is just going to be a waste of your money?
It is no secret that there are a lot of scam health products out there, many that are claimed to be cures for tinnitus. In fact, I have reviewed several other tinnitus scams on this very website, Tinnitus 911 and Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol being two that come to mind.
It is completely logical that you are suspicious of Ring Ease. Any supplement like this that claims to be a "cure all" and will work for anyone is a major red flag. How can one supplement cure tinnitus for everyone if there are multiple causes of tinnitus? It just makes no sense and I knew after coming across this product that I had to do a little investigating and write a review.
In this review I'll be going over all you need to know before hand. If you were thinking about possibly purchasing this supplement, you are definitely going to want to read over my review beforehand.
Warning: A lot of people promoting Ring Ease are directing them to buy another popular promotion out right now called Tinnitus 911, which is also supposed to naturally cure tinnitus. Do not buy this until you have read my review exposing it for what it really is.
Ring Ease Review
Name: Ring Ease
Manufacturer: Life Now Naturals
Type: Tinnitus treatment
Recommended?: Absolutely NOT
Okay... Well you probably already know what is, but for those of you reading this who might not be completely aware, what is Ring Ease exactly?... Or maybe I should say what is Ring Ease claimed to be?
Ring Ease is a 100% natural supplement that is said to cure tinnitus for anyone who suffers from it, similar to Tinnitec and Tinnitus 911. Furthermore, it is promoted as a way to "quickly and permanently" cure tinnitus, which is one heck of a claim to make.
Now what exactly is tinnitus? Tinnitus is a term used to describe constant or at least semi-constant ringing or buzzing in the years. Basically it is the perception of sound without there actually being any auditory sound going into the ears. It is your ears playing tricks on you and is actually extremely common.
From the research I have done I have found that one in five people have tinnitus, although in most cases it is not all that bad. I myself have tinnitus, but it certainly isn't to the extent that some people have it where it keeps them up at night.
According to MayoClinic it is often caused by age-related hearing loss and loud noise exposure, but it cannot be caused by a number of different things, even medications. In fact, I even found a study that has found a relationship between people's emotional conditions and tinnitus (stress).
But anyways… The bottom line is that tinnitus can be caused by number of different things and that Ring Ease claims to be a cure no matter what. If this is true then this product really is a miracle. Tinnitus can be an absolutely horrible in life changing condition that some people go for years of suffering from without ever finding a cure.
But does it really work and should you buy it? Well… I'll get into this in a second, but first let's go over the sales pitch.
Maybe you watched the video presentation, maybe you didn't. If you did then this ridiculous sales pitch is probably what led you to be suspicious of the product and ultimately look into whether or not it is a scam.
The video is presented as a "short but controversial video" with David Smith being the spokesperson. Apparently this David Smith guy's father almost burned to death in his sleep due to tinnitus, but of course now he has perfect hearing without any surgery… All thanks to Ring Ease.
The Ring Ease supplement supposedly comes from Psalm "1700-year-old trick" discovered by Buddhist monks.
David Smith claims that his old doctor friend, Dr. Mathers, new some monks that drink a tea which helps with their hearing… And of course this is some natural miracle hearing treatment. In the video presentation he hints that it is all about this ingredient called "citrus maxima", which I found has a more common name of Pomelo.
He tells you that is all about the bioflavonoids that are found in citrus maxima, which are powerful antioxidants that fight inflammation.
In addition, ginko biloba, Thai garlic, and magnesium are other special ingredients that are supposedly powerful treatments for tinnitus.
David claims that inflammation is the root cause of tinnitus and other forms of hearing loss. He tells you that all stems from the inflammation of the cochlear nerve and of course all of these exotic ingredients are natural cures/treatments for such inflammation.
I think that it is pretty obvious that this all sounds a bit too good to be true. I mean just think about it… This guy's dad almost died in a fire, he goes out on a mission to find a cure and comes across this 100% natural cure that is some ancient secret… And of course it can "quickly and permanently" cure tinnitus.
I've reviewed quite a bit of health scams in it seems that many of them are promoted as ancient secrets that have since been rediscovered and are now being opened up to the public.
I guess the reason for a sales pitch like this is because it is more intriguing and luring. Who wouldn't want to learn about some ancient hidden secret that has since been uncovered? I sure would.
Another red flag is all of the criticism of the hearing industry. Throughout the video presentation David calls their latest hearing technology a "gimmick" and says that they don't actually want to help cure your hearing… They just want to keep you hooked on their latest medications/products and profit from you.
Now while this may be true to some extent, and I think most people have some distrust for the medical industry, he takes things a bit too far and makes it seem as if everyone involved in the industry is out to get you. He takes a ridiculous approach to things and is doing so to scare you into purchasing his 100% natural cure-all product… Ring Ease.
Of course the video presentation might get shut down at any second. He tells you that the hearing device industry along with the pharmaceutical industry hate this presentation and are out to shut it down. This is pretty much the same sales pitch I've heard from numerous other scams I have reviewed, including Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol that I mentioned earlier along with others such as Diabetes Destroyer.
At one point in the video presentation he claims that this natural supplement has helped secure over 21,000 people all over the world. However… If this is true why is there no proof of this ever happening? And why isn't this receiving more popularity?
I get it, I get it… The medical establishment is trying to shut this operation down and keep it hidden. But seriously… If there really were 21,000 people who were cured from this then you would think there'd be a lot more talk about it all over social media.
David Smith, who is supposedly the person behind this all, claims to have a PhD in botany from the University of Idaho, a dad who almost died from tinnitus during a fire, and claims to have the most effective treatment for tinnitus on the market.
But who is this guy really? Unfortunately, I have no idea and there is a good chance he is a completely made up character. There is no verifiable information given on this guy during the video presentation so there's really not all that much I can say here.
All I know is that his story sounds a little bit too good to be true and I have come across many scam products that are promoted under fake, fictitious names.
Throughout the sales pitch he mentions all sorts of studies in talks about how the ingredients he came across have been "statistically significant", but this is a bit misleading. What he doesn't tell you is that being "statistically significant" during a scientific study is much different from what ordinary people would call statistically significant. Basically what I am saying is that being statistically significant and clinically significant are two different things.
Some ingredient may be shown to be statistically significant during a lab study, but this doesn't necessarily mean it will translate into statistically significant results when it comes to human treatment.
The last red flag want to mention is the company that manufactures this product, which is Life Now Naturals. More about this company in a bit, but what you should know now is that there is very little information on this company at all… Which is definitely very worrisome.
The truth is that ginko biloba, citrus maxima, Thai garlic, etc. are not nearly as special in amazing as you are led to believe. What's going on here is the creators of this supplement have taken exotic ingredients that not many people know about, nor have in their diets, and put them in this supplement to make you think that you are missing out on something amazing.
That said, these ingredients are "proven" to work to some extent.
Some of what the spokesperson tells you is true to some extent, he just presents things in a very misleading way.
For example, ginko biloba has been shown to produce "statistically significant" results that were superior to a placebo when tested on groups suffering from cerebrovascular insufficiency, which inflammation has been shown to play a role in.
Inflammation is the cause of many diseases/conditions, or at the very least play some part in them, including asthma, arthritis, sinusitis, etc. However, there is very little information linking inflammation to tinnitus in the information that is out there is lacking.
For example, I actually found one study that seems to say that inflammation is good for tinnitus, which is very strange. The reason is because inflammation produces prostaglandins which have been shown to be helpful. In one study, 8 out of 24
