I’m in the process of trying to buy my first hearing aids. I’m in the US, and my health insurance doesn’t cover enough of the $5,200 cost of the Widex Clear330’s that my audiologist is recommending, so I’m looking for options that are more affordable out of pocket.
I’ve been sort of circling around Audicus for awhile but their business model and online behavior has frankly left me a bit skeptical. I’m also having a very hard time getting a real live human being on their telephone (and they’ve gotten rid of their chat system)
The only reviews I can find anywhere of their products are on their own web site, and honestly I pretty much distrust any review I’m reading on their own site. I’d much rather see the good, the bad, and the ugly out on the wild frontier of the Internet outside of their overly groomed SEO-enhanced slick but sparse web site.
Even the search function here turned up very little about them. As long as they’ve been around, seriously, nobody is using Audicus hearing aids and wants to talk honestly about the experience of dealing with them and their products?
