I’m just wondering if anyone has experience with Hearing Life centers (formerly AccuQuest)? I believe these storefront hearing aid centers are owned and operated by Oticon/Demant–but just wondering if anyone knows for sure. Are they corporately owned or franchises?
I’ve been having trouble finding audiologists who really know Oticon products (most are more familiar with Phonak and ReSound). I thought that maybe a Hearing Life HIS or audiologist would know Oticon products better since they’re affiliated with Demant? I did call one Hearing Life center, and they said I’d have to pay $250 per ear as an “accession fee” because I did not buy my hearing aids from them. This would supposedly cover fees for adjustments and annual hearing aid check ups for the life of my hearing aids. Does anyone have any thoughts about or experiences with services offered through Hearing Life and associated costs? Thanks.
