We saw a new Audi last week. Very nice person, very attentive to my wife’s needs and lifestyle. I was hopeful we were making good progress with this one. But now I’m not so sure. She recommended two products. The Widex Mind 330 ($5200 USD), or the Oticon Vigo Pro ($4950 USD).
The problem here is the price. These are middle-of-the-line aids. But the prices around $5000 seem to be high-end prices. I hate to be so cynical but I’m wondering if she has a higher profit margin on these mid-line aids.
I’m not even sure that I want to trial the Widex because of this post by thanks2. Thanks thanks2.
If I’m going to go with Oticon, then why not go with the better technology of the Oticon Epoq XW for $1000 more (her prices). Am I wrong in thinking that it makes sense to pay $6000 for Oticon’s high-end Epoq BTE as opposed to paying $5000 for for Oticon’s mid-line Vigo-Pro BTE?
