Eargo 7 Features
While the Eargo 7 may look nearly identical to the Eargo 6 (and the Eargo 5, for that matter), the hearing aids differ beyond their price points.
Here’s everything you can expect:
While the Eargo 6 introduced us to Sound Adjust, which automatically adapted our hearing aids to our environment, the Eargo 7 features Sound Adjust+, which claims to offer additional sound clarity.
In our experience, we found this was the case. Sound Adjust+ allowed us to go from watching TV to having a conversation in a crowded restaurant without having to manually adjust them. Sounds continually came in clearly, with minimal interference from background noise.
Eargo 7 hearing aids are rated IPX7 in terms of water resistance, meaning they can be submerged up to 1 meter in water for 30 minutes. So while we wouldn’t recommend wearing them in the pool, they can certainly handle sweat, rain, or the occasional accident with water.
Similar to prior Eargo models, Eargo 7 hearing aids allow you to adjust settings through a smartphone app. Here, you can adjust volume, frequencies, and different sound environments.
Unfortunately, Eargo hearing aids have yet to support Bluetooth audio streaming.
With the Eargo 7 Sound Match feature, you can take a hearing test on your smartphone, and your hearing aids will adjust their settings to your current situation.
Rechargeable Batteries and Charging Case
Eargo 7 hearing aids have rechargeable batteries that lasted us up to 19 hours on a single charge. Strangely enough, this was slightly less than the battery life we tested on the Eargo 6.
The included charging case (similar to an AirPod case) can also store an additional three charges, making it easier to bring these hearing aids on the go.
