After spending $8k on My very first pair of hearing aids from my audiologist back in 2016, I have a gut feeling the same audiologist is trying to screw me over $$, again. I did some research back then, after a few friends were shocked at the price I paid, and found she had charged me more than DOUBLE the retail price (they retailed for $3,299 for both ears)
Now, she’s claiming that she’s not only being totally fair, but that she’s giving me a super-special “Family & Friends” discount through Widex, of which she only gets three per year. So, she’s willing to “sacrifice” and sell me this new pair of Widex Evoke 440 Fusion 2s, with rechargeable batteries and battery doors, the charger/dehydrator, and a device to connect it to my TV (digitally - its Widex’s new version of the TV-Dex), for only $7,500.
Is $7,500 for these, a rip-off? And, I have profound hearing loss with the majority of my issue being an inability to hear someone’s voice clearly over the TV, or in a loud or crowded environment. She’s swearing up and down this is the best of the best hearing aid for me. But, I don’t trust her. Thankfully, money isn’t an issue. I’ll pay what I need to pay to have the best hearing aids available. Thank you in advance for any information you may have for me!
