“I moved to San Diego recently. I bought my hearing aids from an office in Los Angeles. I have now used two different facilities. Chears is by far the better of the two. My hearing aids have never sounded so good. I would give them a 10 out of ten. If your hearing needs help they are the help you need. ”
