How Much Did You Pay For Your Hearing Aids?

2009-12-15 11:23:00 in Discussion on Hearing Loss by  sortofcookiebiter
Setting aside the issue of how much guides OUGHT to cost, I have been stunned by that it is so elusive out how much specific guides DO cost. It's more awful than looking for a sleeping pad! And after that I thought, 'We're the ones who know the amount we've paid, or the amount we've been cited; we're the ones who could open up the black box of estimating.'

So disclose to me how much your guides cost, and I will gather the information together into a table.

Give me the accompanying data:

1. Name and style of aid(s)

2. Any rebates that connected to the aid(s)

3. Month/year of procurement or trial/cite

4. Nation and city/territory of procurement

Is there anything I'm overlooking that would be valuable?

The other decent thing about the Audi I picked is their training just has 4 value focuses. The top notch models, Audeo IX, Oticon XW and top Unitron show are all $2380 ea.

My little girl's oticon small scale 5 was $2200 locally with a one time misfortune substitution of $700.

* Very, on the off chance that they are having an awful week ... or, then again on the off chance that you are upbeat to purchase an ex-demo item ... or, then again in the event that you bring a guide of daylight into their day.

* Not all ... in the event that you are impolite, getting a handle on, harsh.

I have been offered a HOUR's time for testing some time recently!

Phonak Valeo 23AZ ITE

£1,800 GBP with "two at the cost of one" uncommon offer, 2003

NO time for testing, I'd attempted a Perseo for around 30 minutes and couldn't bear the cost of it so we went for the Valeo which is "essentially the same yet with manual program catches"

Aftercare ... dodgy

Out of intrigue, is the iCom and Tek the same (i.e. same groups and frequencies) in the US as it is in the UK? These costs are awesome! Some of them I figure are unique offer "purchase the guides and we'll toss in the remote for a few hundred additional" however the iCom is recorded for £250 in GBP! At the present mid-advertise that turns out finished $400. These costs more like $275 sound extraordinary, however would they say they are a similar item?

Nation and city/range of procurement - Canada

5. Merchant - Costco

So far extremely satisfied with result-real change over my 6 year old CIC's - which I had paid over $5,000 - again at Costco.

The fitter - spent very nearly 2 hours doing what I accept is a REM(?) which tests the guides against their objective range-in the ear. Bluetooth works alright aside from the Tek must be near guides or you get static.

Trond 1. Name and style of aid(s) - Siemens Rexton Cobalt 12 (RIC open fit)

The HA's work incredible. The provider modified the guides to my audiogram. Preferred standpoint: Great cost. Inconvenience: No administration after deal, and should build up an association with a neighborhood audiologist for follow up benefit.

I have a 30-day time for testing as required by California law. I got the guides of 12/31/09 and will return for my first change on 1/7/09. The distributor says that his work will be free for alterations and repairs for the life of the guides, yet I should pay for any fundamental parts not secured by the maker's guarantee, which keeps going one? year (some contention - the site says 2 years, yet the composed guarantee I got says one year). Recipients cost $75 for parts. We'll perceive to what extent one keeps going.

1. Name and style of aid(s) Starkey S arrangement 5 (fundamental model)

2. Any rebates that connected to the aid(s) Audi said as much yet one never knows

3. Month/year of procurement or trial/quote Will get this week

4. Nation and city/range of procurement So California, US

Presently two things truly trouble me. I know one brand of HA will work superior to anything another for people so wouldn't it be decent in the event that we were permitted to attempt two so we could think about. All the audiologist I've met will push that one brand that they work with gthe nearest. WHY? Since they get rebates.

Go into any audi store or office and you'll see graphs and signs from one brand. Dollar to doughnuts they will reveal to you a hundred ways why this specific producer is prevalent for "your kind" of hearing misfortune.

The other is the 30-days...THATS NOT ENOUGH. it takes no less than a month for your cerebrum to get up to speed to the new sounds. In my 12 years wxperience with HAs I've never truly been agreeable in less tiem than 90 days least.

KarenK Audi

Give me the accompanying data:

1. Name and style - Audeo Yes V

2. Any rebates $200 for the match

3. Nov/09; 45 day Trial (expanded in view of issues) Cost $4300

4. US/western New York

Trial closes tomorrow; I think I will keep them. Misfortune is gentle to direct, BUT they help in expansive gatherings, I can hear the winged creatures again [and squeaky brakes, entryways, etc]; TV is better; or more all tinnitus is not all that irritating.

Gale Locally they needed about $2700 each for comparative guides and did not supply the changing equipment and programming. In store natually will cost progressively and the multi-level showcasing cost more than coordinate evaluating. Observed the AH staff to be more expert than nearby merchants/specialists which was a decent in addition to.

Keep in mind hear helps are about hearing better and not finding the least expensive cost as it were. Ones that work best for you are the best arrangement.

roberthamden Audi

Give me the accompanying data:

1. Name and style - Starkey S Series 5 - RIC (recipient in trench)

2. Any rebates NO!

3. Aug/09 30 day Trial (broadened in light of issues) Cost $2600.00

4. US/Florida, Orlando

2. Any rebates No (around 60% Discount from Audi for comparative AID)

3. Nov/09 90 day Trial $2950.00 with remote and Blue Tooth Connectivity

4. US/Florida, Orlando

Who might I buy from later on Costco, and not as a result of value, the HIS was brilliant and outflanked the Audi 10 overlay.

Expectation this makes a difference.

dcm 1. Name and style of aid(s) - Phonak Naida IX UP $4940 for 2

2. Any rebates that connected to the aid(s) - No

3. Month/year of procurement or trial/cite - June 2009

5. Seller - Audiologist in ENT officeiCom = $275

MyPilot = $400

JohnC I purchased a couple of Starkey Desting 1200s in October 2008 close Boston for $5000.00

Apparently, that is an investment funds of $1000.00 of his "customary" cost.

EnglishDispenser A few of the 1500 UK gadgets distribute their costs on the Web

Don't you have a few providers doing likewise in the US?

Increase these costs by 2, 3, 4 or 5 to get the costs that the person with the workplace on Main Street may charge .. when he/she has looked at your suit, your auto, your address and so on.

sortofcookiebiter My fear about posting the seller is that somebody working for the merchant could put on a show to be a shopper and lie about valuing to get clients. Not to be excessively suspicious or anything...

jdtruly May I propose posting the merchant, too?

My current buy:

two Phonak Audeo SMART IX

incorporates Mypilot or Icom, 45 day trial, 3 yr guarantee and 3 yr misfortune protection, neighborhood Audi benefit

Dallas TX

from Hearing Planet $5198
