SoundsGood hearing aid resembles earrings
Wearing a hearing aid can be a necessity for some, but others who are self-conscious might wish that there is a different way to treat their condition instead. I supposed the SoundsGood hearing aid concept, if it manages to turn into reality, would fly off the shelves – especially since it resembles a pair of rather stately earrings that the ladies would fall in love with.

PLUG hearing aid concept
Body modification has its fair share of fans and detractors, and if you fall under the former category, then you might want to check out the PLUG hearing aid concept. Why do we say so?
