Hey, what’s the dealio with America Hears? They’re charging $250/aid for repairs now. Used to be around $150 back in 2015.
I was Googling their address so I can mail my aids to them and came across Google reviews where it was suggested they are now under a new management and that their repair services have become poor. On top of that, they will charge you full $250 just to replace a wind guard?
Anyone got any experience with America Hears within the last 2 years? My aids are pretty old so I’m not sure it’s worth spending $500 on repairs when I can use that money towards newer hearing aids. Especially if AH’s services are as shoddy as reviews say.
I’m shopping around new hearing aids (budget around 2500-3000 a pair) and I’d love to go to Costco but there isn’t one where I live so I was thinking of going along the route of eBay and self-programming (chinese mini USB) or buyhear.com. Are there any other alternatives that wouldn’t be as overpriced? What are some decent models to check out these days for someone in moderately severe range?
