While I would LOVE to have manufacturers’ reps here, I just wonder if all would be equal in terms of knowledge, communication skills and even TIME to log in and post.
We are an ideal body of users, and I know that if I was an audi, or in marketing for a HA maker, I’d be HERE getting feedback on my company’s devices as well as monitoring the competition - but then, I’ve always been hungry for that kind of info.
I’ve had a few questions about new aids, but since I don’t use any phone apps, no “bugs” to speak of. I also agree with ConZ27’s comments about being respectful and not toxic when it comes to sharing some of the issues we may be grappling with.
It could be a wonderful POSITIVE if done right. But there is a possibility of over-representation by more aggressive reps vs under-representation by others, and that could skew people’s future buying decisions.
