Just got a hearing aid today (one ear) and wow, what a difference! I’ve been able to reduce the volume on my Echo by 3 sound levels. I can actually hear the cats trill. So, what tips do you wish you had been given when you first got a hearing aid?
As to where I got my hearing aid, I bought it from Miracle Ear. It’s from the Genius 3.0 line, but not the top of the line. Feels like there is nothing there, but as mentioned, I hear great!
I do understand that Costco is uber popular and I DID want to get my hearing aids from them. However, the customer service at my local Costco was just not there. I struggled to get answers to what I think should be simple questions. The staff seems to have a high turnover - nobody has been there more than 2 years. Appointments even for adjustments were expected to be 2 weeks out. My neighbor who got his hearing aid from that store 2 years ago says this is common with them. I would have bought their new premium hearing aid but couldn’t find out if it would even work for me (I need a high oxygen ear piece). Frustrating that ONE hearing aid with insurance discount cost as much as the pair from Costco, but there it is. I need some service because of my chronic ear problems and increasing tinnitus, but it just wasn’t going to be.
