*Fit Hearing offers local fittings as well as virtual fittings. According to comments posted on social media, customers choose the face-to-face fitting (local delivery) about 85% of the time. They do not consider themselves "DTC" because all hearing aids are fit through licensed providers, even though some fittings do not have a face-to-face component.
