RCA Accessories announced the upcoming launch of three new upgraded premium hearing aids with advanced functionality, battery lifetime, and volume controls. Each of the premium models launched under the RCA brand caters to specific users and their needs and are priced cheaper than competitive products, the company says.
In addition, the company is introducing a new protection plan for its customers.
“We have made significant enhancements to our product offering and are very excited about the upcoming RCA hearing aid and protection plan launches,” says Ian Geise, president of VOXX Accessories Corporation. “This has been one of our most explosive growth categories since we entered the market last year and the new products we’ll be bringing to market should help drive further adoption. Our products have been carefully designed to address all types of consumers suffering from hearing loss and our new models are technologically superior, comfortable, easy to use and competitively priced. We will continue to drive innovation for our customers and in turn, the millions of Americans suffering from hearing loss without the financial burdens they’ve been accustomed to.”
RCA Accessories entered the over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aid market with several products in May 2023. The first two models introduced last year, RCA RSH05 and RCA RSH20, were designed to cater to consumers looking for large, easy-to-use controls and those looking for discreet all-day comfort. Now, RCA will unveil three new models that provide enhanced capabilities, use, and comfort to a wider demographic in need.
