This article applies to the following Eargo products:

The FDA defines a hearing aid as a sound-amplifying device intended to compensate for impaired hearing. Eargo is a Class 1, FDA-regulated hearing aid intended for individuals with mild to severe high-frequency hearing loss. Eargo hearing aids are clinically tested medical devices. They were designed by an ENT doctor with more than 30 years' experience and rigorously tested by a team of audiologists and hearing professionals before being put into production. 

Personal Sound Amplification Products, also referred to with the acronym PSAP, are defined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a, "wearable electronic product not intended to compensate for impaired hearing." They are not hearing aids but instead intended for individuals with normal hearing. PSAPs are not medical devices and are not regulated by the FDA. They are intended for consumers with normal hearing to amplify sounds in the environment for a number of reasons, such as for recreational activities.
