“I recently purchased a hearing aid from Sontec. I’m really happy because I can now watch TV without subtitles like before. I can also follow a friend’s conversation even when they are in a group. It’s really comfortable to wear, so you can forget it’s in your ear. No one would guess you’re using a hearing aid because it’s discreetly hidden in the ear. I would recommend one to my friends.”
