      Not sure if anyone knows about the Bose SoundControl, but they just showed up on my radar.

      I had read that consumer hearing aids were becoming a thing this year and this looks promising for those like me with hearing loss induced tinnitus.

      And they are only $850! Hopefully they can be purchased with a simple return policy!

      I was excited about this, but then saw that they only cover 200 Hz to 8000 Hz. I would have thought that Bose would have tried to push the envelope and go beyond what standard hearing aids do (i.e. support higher frequencies). Sadly, it looks like they didn't.

      Ah I didn't see that. I wonder if they can be hacked. As more of these devices are built with software that works with our phones, I think that's not out of the realm of possibility!

      Either way, I am excited that there will be cheaper hearing aid alternatives on the horizon that have cool built in software features that we find in things like AirPods etc.

      I doubt it, since the frequency response is most likely driven by hardware limitations.

      Has anyone used or got any opinion on the OTC Bose SoundControl hearing aids? Would they be worth a shot for someone suffering from severe tinnitus and mild/moderate hearing loss?

      Thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
