branded hearing aids makes it so confusing for the public!!
OK, another locked hearing aid. Dr. Cliff, thanks for the warning!
The prices seem way too high as well. My top of the line Signia hearing aids were two thousand dollars less at my local provider.
Great video, Dr. Cliff!! I am an Audigy practice. Audigy helps me to grow my business by assisting me with business management solutions, which is not my strong suit because I am an audiologist, not a business person! Ha. Just to clarify…. I do NOT follow the Audigy pricing structure. I offer both bundled and unbundled pricing. I do prefer the AGX branded hearing aids but I am not exclusively AGX branded. For me, the locked nature of the hearing aids is important. I spend quite a lot of time and effort doing real ear measures to program hearing aids. I do not want my patients to just go to ANY office (or a potentially less trained person) to have any programming done which could potentially be detrimental to the hearing aid function. AGX locked hearing aids can most certainly be unlocked by request. I have frequently done this when patients have to move to an area where there is not a convenient Audigy office. Other locked hearing aids include Beltone, Avada, MiracleEar, Zounds, some Costco devices…. well, there are MANY! Good luck EVER getting any of those unlocked if you move or just want to go to a different provider. The bottom line is…. KNOW YOUR PROVIDER and ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS! Also, I don' t really promote myself as "audigy certified"….. I prefer to promote myself as a doctor of audiology. 🙂
Thank you for the video. Why in the world would anyone pay for a locked product when name brands are available most likely for less money. I could not watch to the end.
Thanks Doc! JimE
Very informative. I had heard of them but didn't know what they were. So if the patient with these devices comes to my clinic in London it will be similar to them coming with a Specsavers aid from the UK, it will look like the devices I supply but I won't be able to help the patient!
So basically, don't buy AGX.
For $7500 I'll not only live with this Tinnitus, I'll learn to love it. Craaaaazzzzzyyyyy. Going to the audiology clinic at CVS. "As seen on TV", Miracle Ear.
Hey Dr. Cliff, how close are hearing aids coming to be able to work with android devices like apple devices without any other devices?
Hey doc!!!… Keep an eye on that research for cure for hearing loss… I've seen some rumors that it might be done before we know it!!!!
Phonak was not included in the list….. are they one of the only ones who won’t participate?
