“10 people wanted to try new…”   We don’t promote short term promotions or lead in offers.   We evaluate your hearing and your hearing needs.    period!   After reviewing the results and your hearing history, you are welcome to take a set of digital demo hearing aids for a test drive.   It is far better that you experience their probable benefit in your home or work environment, and then make a judgement as to their benefit before deciding on what level of technology is appropriate for your hearing needs, or not……

Technology levels vary from the most basic, for those that just want or need hearing assistance at home or in random casual listening situations (card game, conversation for a family member or friend).   Or something more sophisticated for intense listening situations with multiple speakers, or noisy environments.

We have featured  Phonak hearing products for the last decade, due to the consistent product quality and flexibility to address most hearing needs (and cost constraints).   Phonak is a global leader in hearing instrument development and research.   Additional advanced technology also available from  Widex (address tinnitus or ringing in the ear issues),         Hansaton and Siemens ( rechargable  hearing aids), Unitron (cost alternative quality products), GN Resound (owner and manufacturer of Beltone retail products)   and Starkey,  and Oticon.   We also work with individuals utilizing hearing products purchased through AARP’s Medicare Supplement plan’s ( United Health Care’s ) “hi Health Innovations”  or Hearing Planet (HearingPlanet, Inc.) an online supplier of digital hearing aids.   These programs, similar to what some supplemental health insurance plans are utilizing as online “middle man” for the purchase of their hearing instruments, in lieu of providing direct insurance coverage for hearing loss and hearing aids.    We (Audiologists and hearing care specialists) still provide the professional services (testing, hearing aid evaluations, fitting and follow up care) but the purchase of the instruments are through a third party, which may or may not be a financial advantage.

Low cost alternative now abound on the internet, but studies have shown that the end product delivered to the consumer often lacks the quality or meets the needs of the hearing impaired individual.    Cost vs. benefit sometimes is not refundable.   What appeared to have a trial period, doesn’t.   Regretfully, as the AARP group often warns, buyer beware!    Work with a knowledgeable, local professional to ensure quality care for the long term.
