My trusty Oticon DigiFocus II finally died on me and I need to get a replacement. Want to stick with Oticon as I had a great experience with them so far. Now, since for the first time I have to foot the whole bill (in Germany I at least got some co-pay from the insurance) I want to get the best deal for my money.
The Audiologist first tried to push Widex on me which I didn’t care for and after I told him I would prefer an Oticon, he is trying to sell me on their topline, the Agil Pro.
When looking at Oticon’s website, the Agil does offer more features but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the better device. I have moderate inner ear hearing loss which increases as frequency goes up.
What’s the better deal here? Acto or Agil?
I’m in my mid 30ies and have had hearing aids since I was 4.
Also he wants about 6500 for the whole deal (including molds for the half shells and the streamer) for the Agil Pro and offers 5% for cash payment.
Thx for any advice.
