My dad’s about to have an appointment to order the Widex Moment 220 in a few days. I’ve read that a lot of people have had good experiences with Costco and that they offer the best value for the money, but his insurance covers a good bit of the cost so we decided to go one step (arguably) above that with the Widex 220 from a local audiologist.
Someone on here told me the Rexton and Philips hearing aids from Costco are actually more advanced, that they’re comparable to the Widex 440 or 330, just with a few unnecessary tech features missing. They pointed out that the 220 is meant for people who mostly just have one on one conversations in quiet environments (which is true for my dad) but the Costco HAs, like the 330 and 440, have advanced features like filtering out background noise in noisy environments, and are simply better products than the 220 even if you ignore the cost.
Is that true? Is the Widex 220 actually a step down, even though it costs more? Or was he overexaggerating how good the Costco options are? No offense to that person who responded to me before if you see this, but that’s the first time I heard the Costco options are actually superior products.
