It's bad enough that so many babies have to wear disposable diapers for YEARS but now there is a disposable hearing aid:

Not to downplay the plight of the hearing imparied. I have lost some hearing in the Navy and can only imagine what it is like to have a signifigant hearing impairment but why would you need a DISPOSABLE hearing aid?

I can tell you why. My friends son is mostly deaf and uses aids. They wear out FAST, they have to replace his every year or year and a half, and the old ones go in the trash, so they are pretty much disposable anyway only cost a heck of a lot more than the 99.00 that that co. charges for theirs.
