Hi, my 83 yr old dad is getting a new hearing aid. His current one is 12 years
old and the new audio test says his hearing is MUCH worse in both ears
and that he could benefit with 2 aids - 1 for now because of the cost - right ear.
The audiologist - who i asked to keep the cost down if possible -
prescribed this aid:
It seems like a good entry level digital aid and i think would make a
big improvement over his current old analogue aid. Current cost =
$1200 - $500 - Canada Gov’t pays - $100 discount = $600 would be his
My question is would the Phonak Una Sp AZ - which has this autozoom
extra feature - be a better aid?
Would the audiologist’s test show that he would benefit from the
Autozoom feature or did the test show that he wouldn’t benefit from it
hence save cost?
How much more would the Autozoom cost?
Should i forget about the more expensive Autozoom and buy 2 of these cheaper models ? Or buy just the one and try it then buy another if he likes it?
