Larry Faust, 61, of Seattle, WASH., and his CS10 hearing aid and Android app. The CS10 is a new hearing aid that allows consumers to cut out the doctor and purchase directly from the company (non FDA regulated). CS10 also has an Android app that consumers can use to program the hearing aid.
Mr. Faust purchased a Personal Sound Amplifier directly Soundworld Solutions, a company based in Chicago, for $299.99. Because the device is not classified as a hearing aid, the CS10 is exempt from FDA guidelines, and can be sold directly to the consumer.
