Before You Buy New Hearing Aids
The purchase of a hearing aid is an important decision that can significantly increase your safety and quality of life. So take the time to find a knowledgeable licensed hearing professional and the right device.
- Find out about hearing problems and how they can be rectified.
- Take our hearing test as preparation.
- Find a qualified specialist in your area.
- Do not let your search be swayed by cheap advertising promises: digital hearing aids come at a price and only provide beneficial results when they are adjusted to suit your individual hearing problems by a specialist.
- Take another comprehensive hearing test with your hearing specialist and have all the details of the results explained to you.
- Have the different models that may be suitable for you, your hearing problem and your lifestyle shown and explained to you at a pace that suits you.
- Find out what services are included in the purchase price. For example, is the important follow-up examination included? Make sure you also get your hearing specialist to tell you about insurance protection and other programs that can reduce the costs of maintenance, loss, and repair.
- Make sure the device is adjusted optimally. Poorly adjusted devices are uncomfortable to wear and do not provide the desired tone quality.
- Tell those around you about the new device and remind your friends and acquaintances that, as of now, they no longer need to speak excessively loud.
- Find out precisely when the trial period for your device runs out.
