user reviews of hearing aids?

Question by Wayne L: user reviews of hearing aids?

Best answer:

Answer by ZCT
They are largely pointless. Hearing is very subjective. Everyone has a different hearing loss, and everyone responds differently to having a hearing loss. Every person with a hearing loss will respond differently to a hearing aid. In the same way that I might like a BMW, but you might prefer a Lexus.

So from what I have seen web sites that try to compare hearing aids do a poor job. I can find you a patient of mine who thinks the company I work for makes the best hearing aids in the world (as I do). But I can probably find another patient who had a bad experience. And remember bad news always travels faster than good.

The true acid test is to get a hearing test and then have the hearing professional demonstrate some real hearing aids programmed to match your loss. If the place you go cannot do this for you, walk (or run) away.

Then negotiate a free no-obligation no fee trial of your hearing aids, for at least a month. See how you get on with them in the real world. Don’t be afraid to shop around.

Consider Starkey, Audibel, Siemens, ReSound, Widex, Oticon. Avoid Phonak, REALLY avoid Miracle Ear or Magnatone.
