We cry about the cost of hearing aids you need to read this about how custom hearing aids are produced
Makes me suspect that non custom aids (BTEs and RICs) subsidize the production of customs. Perhaps a better way to put it is that non custom aids have a better profit margin, as I’m pretty sure there’s not much of a price differential between customs and non custom.
Yep, cheaper to maintain and service too. The whole move from ITE to RIC has been hugely profitable for the manufacturers.
It’s always about the Money.
Thanks for posting. I watched the video. It was mostly about making custom HA’s.
If you ever have an opportunity to see the behind the ear HA’s produced, I’d be very interested in seeing/reading about that. I wonder how automated that process is.
Appreciate the post,
