Use a Broker to Get The Lowest Prices Possible!
The price of hearing aids is a major factor in determining the performance level of a hearing aid and how it will assist your lifestyle. Prices can vary with different hearing aids for many reasons such as features, technology levels and age of the hearing aids since release.
There are generally four categories that the hearing aids are grouped in: Premium, Advanced, Standard and Essential. Depending on your needs and requirements, these levels will play a major role in determining how your budget matches the lifestyle demands of your hearing needs.
Our hearing aid brokers can help determine where you fall on the spectrum of these technologies or software levels so you know how the price will impact your budget. By working with a hearing aid broker during this process you will be able to reach the most competitive price and harness our buying power to your benefit.
Hearing Aid Choices and Easy Comparisons
Dealing with an independent audiologist, your first appointment will be a free consultation. There is a wide variety and choice of the leading hearing aid manufacturers that are marketed worldwide.
Types of hearing aids that are on offer are in-the-ear hearing aids, invisible hearing aids, behind-the-ear hearing aids or open fit hearing aids. Technology is superseded on a yearly basis for the hearing aids on the market, which also adds to the level of complexity as most brands phase out older stock over time.
This is a common trap for hearing aid buyers. In the past, our clients have been offered older hearing aids and have been told that those hearing aids are the latest from that particular brand. This is obviously not the case. There is a reason for this and that is because the cost of the older devices to buy drops and the margin remains the same over time.
For this reason, even big brand hearing aid retailers will exercise this approach to make money. The details are often lost in the fine print or not mentioned. Our hearing aid brokers can explain the timelines of hearing aid releases, so you know what is the latest hearing aid for each brand and where you stand.

Refined Hearing Aid Services and Support
In traditional hearing clinics, the Audiologist has always been the knowledge source of the brands of hearing aids and their features. This means that an appointment is booked to see them.
That appointment will, in most cases, only be an hour long. Extra time to discuss features of the hearing aids and the brands is limited and so most people leave feeling as if they have not received enough time or have been overloaded with information and are often confused. Our brokers remove these feelings, as they are not time-dependent. Our brokers are capable of moving at your pace, as you decide on the right hearing aid either by phone or email prior to stepping foot into our hearing clinics.
