So my mini BTE ears (Rexton Cobalts) are about the size of a pinto bean, feature wireless bluetooth audio, house a battery that lasts for a week at 14 hours per day, is made to withstand being in a moist environment 14 hours per day for about 5 years, has a speaker that can generate crystal clear audio from about 400Hz to about 5kHz, amplified about 90dB (yeah, I am basically stone deaf), and the speaker is about the size of the tip of a pen. It has enough DSP power to dwarf a laptop from 10 years ago.

Really, someone's surprised that these things cost a lot? Yes, the markup is unbelievable, but these are not your grandfather's hearing aids.
