That seems a little jaded. Most healthcare providers want to provide the best quality care for their patients. And there’s a reason they don’t recommend OTC hearing aids to people; inevitably one of two things happen, people get mad that the OTC’s don’t work and they stop pursing hearing care, or they end up paying for OTC’s one year and then come back the next year and upgrade to a better quality hearing device. AirPods are great, but this study feels like it was a paid marketing ploy by Apple. Just my opinion though, definitely consult your healthcare professional for advice.

Regardless of their intent, a lot of people simply can’t afford them. Medicare doesn’t cover them at all. So some improvement is better than none at all. And for people with mild hearing loss (like me) something like this is adequate.
