Review Erika at Lloyd's recommended the Lloyd's Joy Slim. I'm here to tell you my "bad ear" is now my good ear! It really helps me hear my wife's voice when we are in the car, and boosts my hearing nicely at church. We are going to a play this evening, and I'm not sure I'd even have ventured that without the Joy Slim. This one has 3 different hearing modes, and they all work as advertised - the directional microphone is especially nice.

Even though I have a shot haircut almost nobody has noticed the hearing aid. The open fit permits me to hear natural sounds as well as enhanced sound. Finally, I especially like that no electronics are inside the ear canal and believe this feature may give this nifty little device a somewhat longer life.

While I was talking with Lloyd's, I learned later that my sister in law was buying two hearing aids from a company in her home town that look nearly identical to the Joy least they are BTE and the functions are very similar. But she sadly told me she paid many times what I did. The folks at Lloyd's were very easy to work with...I'm highly pleased. Roy D., Cumming, GA.

Review I have been using my Joy Slim for about a week. Here's my situation. I am 72. I am married; I am an art teacher in a high school. So I need to hear people. Unfortunately I am stone deaf in one ear. My other ear has "moderate" loss.

I was very wary of people trying to "sell" me more than I needed, or of being unable to return a device.

An older male friend of mine, told me about LLoyds--saying the service was cooperative, helpful, and professional. So I tried.
I opted for the economy hearing aid--the house brand, so to speak. I am totally happy with it.

It seems to be just right for me--no more than I need, nor less.
I am very fussy about wearing things--even jewelry--but the open fit is so minimal that I forget it's in my ear. In fact, my biggest fear is that it might fall out, unknowingly.
I made this choice after reading all the advertising from more expensive aids; they all seem to promise the world. I was willing to settle for a 60 or 80 percent improvement. I certainly have it with the open fit Joy.
I also bought the remote, which I wanted because I could not fiddle with the tiny buttons on the aid. At the moment the led display is not working, but the remote is working and it's quick to change around with the three programs.
So for the moment, I am very pleased--and I saved myself six or eight hundred dollars!

Review I have been using this one for a week--and it has really helped me. Here''s my situation: I''m 72, I am an art teacher, and am married. Hearing is important to me. I am deaf in one ear; the other has "moderate" loss. The Joy Slim seems to help me quite a bit. I was worried it would annoy me; however, the open fit style works for me; I hardly notice its presence. Andy at LLoyds has been professional and friendly. The 45 day return puts my mind at ease. I was wary of places that might try to sell me too much.
The price of the Slim saved me about 600 hundred dollars and seems to be just what I need. Not too much; not too little. I also bought the remote which is very handy. At the moment the led display isn''t working; however the remote itself works. Illl have to get a replacement unit.

Review I am very happy with my pair of Joy Slim-V hearing aids! I was
pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get accustomed to using
them. They are comfortable; and easy to adjust volume and to
change programs. I wear my hair short (cut half-way down my ear),
and they are barely noticeable unless one is looking for them. It is very nice to hear so well--and not to be saying "pardon me?" so frequently! And the volume on the TV is not nearly as loud!

Review All the instruction manuels were easy to use, and the hearing aids were easy to set up and adjust, with the remote. As instructed I wear them the entire day to get use to wearing them and although I have only had them for a few days I think that I have already adjusted. They make a lot of difference not only when I am in and around the home but when I am out and about.

Review I can hear again, whew!! What a relief, both for my wife & myself.
My purchase was for a set of Joy V slim open fit BTE. Although, I am still getting familiar with the settings, I had no problem with the fitting. No pain or adjustment like I've had with CIC aids from another source.

Before purchasing the JoyV slim's, I priced a similar set (same features) at a nearby hearing center. This name brand was priced at almost $4900 compared to the $1750 at Lloyd's. The only advantage I could see was the hearing test itself & possible easier servicing if needed. Can't say about reliability yet, but so far everything is great.

Review Great hearing aids! I had been using in the ear hearing aids for a year and never did like them. Switched to these behind the ear and now I'm hearing things I haven't heard in a long time. I also bought the remote control. It really comes in handy because I can change volumn or programs depending on the situation I am in.

Review So far so good, products works fine, less expensive than local, good people at Lloyd's and always helpful. A few minor adjustments may be needed but not a problem.

Review I must say that with less than a week of use, I am not going back to my $1200 analog aid this replaced. I am not only satisfied but am delighted with this unit.

Review Joy Slim-V. I've used this one for nearly a year and have no complaints. I'm not much for wearing jewelry, rings and never thought I could tolerate a hearing aid. But the open fit is comfortable enough. Price-wise, the Joy probably gives you 90 percent of what's available from the more expensive ones. The build quality after a year seems good to me. I recommend it.
