Unitron Insera 700 CIC Model. Should I purchase from Abroad and have it programmed locally to save cost?

Hi

I am writing on this forum to inquire about the CIC Model hearing aids.

I am currently based in Dubai, UAE, and I have been visiting the Local hearing aid representative for all my Unitron hearing aid services and purchases.

However recently the right-side hearing aid has gotten spoilt and needs replacement. I received a quote from the dealership for a price that seems very high and ridiculous to me.

I plan to purchase the hearing aid piece directly from CANADA or abroad and have it programmed in Dubai. Please advise if this option makes sense?

If the person programming the new aid in Dubai is ok with this, sounds like a way to save some money. You need to verify this and ask how much the fitter will charge to program that new aid.
Good luck
