I have almost total hearing loss in my right ear, about 50% loss in left ear. My Audi originally quoted me A$2,600 total (Australian Dollars, which are currently almost at par with US$) for a Phonac Unison 3 for my left ear and a transmitter for the right ear so I can hear whats happening on that side (important for me as I do ballroom dance and the lady is always on the right).
I asked him if I could also get a transmitter that can attach to the TV so I dont have to turn it up so much, expecting it might add another couple of hundred dollars. His reply was that he would have to add:
1 x ML8Sreciever
1 x Smartlink
He says this will take the total cost to A$4,600. This sounds excessive to me. Can anyone advise whether this seems a realistic price, or is he ripping me off?
If it is realistic price, why does a simple link to the TV cost so much? Is there a cheaper way to do it?
Hoping someone can help,
