From where I sit in our office, I can hear some of our superb hearing advisors doing basic hearing checks with our customers over the phone. It struck me that many of the talking points they use most are also found in this article published by the Mayo Clinic.
The article reminds me that our folks are up to date and on the money with their advice, but it may have missed an important point: We recommend visiting your doctor (or an audiologist) for a hearing exam if you’re having trouble hearing. Obviously, a doctor or audiologist is qualified to test your hearing – but you are not obligated to buy equipment from them. And that’s why our company has been around since 1979.
We sell our hearing aids to audiologists, too. The same technology is available directly from us (the manufacturer) to customers at a fraction of the price that an audiologist would charge. If you have hearing exam results, we can use that information to suggest the best hearing solution for your level of hearing loss. If you do have an audiogram that you’d like to share, you can do that here. And if you don’t, we can guide you through the process over the phone, or you can take our free hearing check.
The bottom line is that people expect that hearing aids will cost thousands of dollars. But you can get the same, high-quality devices directly from us without leaving your chair. Oh yeah – at a fraction of the price. As one of our hearing advisors frequently says, “we can help you hear, but we can’t make you listen!”
