I considered buying the refurbished for $299, but $499 is not bad for a new device. The app is my favorite part and has the most customization I have experienced with other hearing amplifiers around the same price range. I will say that the connection can be a little choppy, but for the most part is good. The hearing quality for music is good too.
I use mine for going for walks or jogging. I use the outdoor mode when I want to hear the wind or birds on a nice day. I enjoy listening to music too when taking those runs!
I was not one for wireless or Bluetooth before, but I am in love with my pair of Olive earbuds! I can listen to my music and also hear what's going on around me. A little overwhelming at first, but I got used to it!
These are less expensive and more customizable than some of the other brands I've tried. I use them constantly as both Bluetooth earbuds and hearing aids. Battery life could improve, but not a dealbreaker. Recommend.
I absolutely love the combination of Bluetooth and a hearing aid. It works well with my smartphone and its very convenient!
I am very happy with my new olive earbuds! I have been waiting for the price to drop. $499 is much more reasonable for these! Almost perfect, but could use more customization features.
I was waiting for the price to drop on the Olive Smart Ears. They used to go for around $1000, but i jumped on the chance for the $499 sale!
I had done the trial last year and I really enjoyed them, but I could not commit to a $1000 purchase at the time. I considered the refurbished, but the $499 for a new device came out soon after! I recommend trying the $499 ear pluses!
I bought a pair of Olive Smart Plus back when they started their $29 trial, and I am happy they finally started selling refurbished. I can get my backup pair for 1/4th of what I originally spent. I am glad that they brought back the white version too!
Best refurbished deal out there so far. If you look at the other guys selling refurbished, easily goes for around 600 bucks. These are the perfect deal for those who need lighter hearing support.
The cleanliness is good quality. Great job with the refurbishment, they work wonderfully. I have a little bit of trouble with the ear tip secirity, but overall am really enjoying the Olives.
I cannot even tell that these were used before. The packaging they came in; you can tell they cleaned and did what they could to make it look new. I love my new hearing earbuds. Customization, check. Price, check. Overall, check. I
I am very happy with the price point for these hearing earbuds! I love that they call them that too. I do everything with them now, and I cant imagine being without! I am not the best with the app, but it is a must!
I lost one earbud in the woods. They worked so well from the moment I took the hearing test in rhe app and tried them out that I just can not be without them.
They work great and I have used them all the time since I got them.
The refurbished is surprisingly well-cleaned. The price is okay, and the earbuds work. They are not my favorite, but I do like to have multiple options to switch between.These are more casual for me.
I can confirm that the refurbished devices are clean. That's what I was worried about when I saw "refurbished" earbuds. Sounds unappealing. But, I am very relieved to report that I received mine and they were CLEAN! GOOD. Can't even tell that they are refurbished. They work just as I expected they would.
Normally, I would never trust refurbished items, but the discount was too large to pass. I am glad got passed my own thoughts on this one.
Refurbished ear buds sounded strange to me at first, but I do not regret my purchase. I was putting off trying hearing aids because of the price. But I took advantage of the refurbished deal and I am very happy I finally did. I cant even really tell that they're used. It is really hard to find good sound quality at this price point, but I am very pleased with my decision though the Olive App could be improved more.
The fact that I only paid $299 is one of the impressive aspects of the Olive amongst the others. The customization and sound quality are great. I honestly can't even tell that my own unit is used! I've been having a blast with them since I jumped on the opportunity to get them inexpensively. If you have wanted to buy the Olive but thought it was too expensive before, now is the perfect chance!
I am so happy that Olive Union started selling refurbished units! I had been wanting a backup device for my Olive Plus I bought last year! My original pair is still good and working wonderfully, and I absolutely love it so much! So convenient. But I am glad that I can own back for much less than what I originally paid for.
Of course because it's refurbished, I had to test it out. I used it for an entire day when I received it last week and there were no noticeable problems with it. It looks exactly like the one I use, in great condition. I could not tell that it had been used at all (no leftovers, if you know what I mean). As far as the technical stuff, it is indistinguishable from the Plus I already have. The same exact thing that I like, just MUCH cheaper. Very smart move, I think.
I’m getting used to the functions of the Olive ear plus. I’ve tried two other hearing aids and the olive is far the best. It’s not huge works well and looks like EarPods so it’s discrete. And you have a chance to try it at home without making appointments to go to a hearing clinic.
I have moderate hearing loss that prevents me some enjoying conversations while in public. The Olive SmartEar Plus allows me to now enjoy dinner or dancing with family and friends. The Bluetooth technology to answer calls and listen to music makes this a truly multifunction device. The sound quality is crystal clear and the battery life is exceptional. The MyOlive app makes fine tuning your hearing experience easy and customizable to your hearing experience. I would highly recommend this device for moderate hearing loss.
I should have tried these out earlier! I was very hesitant because I don't trust many online shopping sites besides Amazon. Glad that I did, because these Olives earbuds have helped me hear much better! My only complaint is that I wish they were a little more score, but I fixed that with an ear strap. Definitely worth a try!
These have helped me with my hearing loss and I can hear my coworkers much better now! I don't have to keep asking them to repeat themselves, which is good for me too. Communication is much easier now and I would like to think that the stress caused by my hearing loss has lessened greatly for both me and my coworkers!
These are good quality even as Bluetooth earbuds. They replaced my normal earbuds since these also have the hearing aid function. Good two for one.
These are good quality and I can hear better than before! They do what I need them to do.
The customer service was fantastic! I had purchased the OSEP but my dog ate one of the earbuds! I reached out to Olive about my situation and they sent me a new one without hesitation! Absolutely the best, thank God!!!!! So easy and straightforward and a great relief. I'll be keeping my new pair AWAY FROM MY DOG!
