I tossed my Siemens hearing aids in the trash. After spending over six thousand dollars for them and thinking I was set for life, it seemed each time I brought them in for adjustment, I left with less hearing. Eventually at the 5th year they pretty much both gave up the ghost and I was told that Siemens probably won't even repair them after 5 years. You could say they are disposable. The worst...

Miserable experience. I'm a 20 year veteran of hearing aids and know what to expect. I would rather pay more in the long run for quality service and a less frightening experience. A 1 hr. appt. took over 2 hrs. The audiologist lacked training with the new Phonac Brio and the computer programming for it. There was no one to answer phones, so my appt. was interrupted 3 times and started 30 min.... Read more

9 unanswered emails for status on my WIDEX repair. 11 phone calls.... nothing. Package left by FEDEX (confirmed) but nothing from the repair center Line disconnected ???? Who knows? Line is no longer "in service". So, package delivered, no status, no update, no communcations, nothing at all. BUT..... they keep their web site up looking for business. Now, why is that? I suspect this... Read more

Ok, 88 years old not a lot of money but pretty hard of hearing. So I trusted my audiologist. From the second month I started having problems with the aids. Well 2 years later and constantly bringing the aids back for repairs from the beginning, the warranted aids are gone and now I am told, NO more free fixes. My Son is mad as *** with Siemens not fixing the same issues from the start and... Read more

I purchased my third set of Widex aids in Phoenix and the dealer sold their business soon after. I have been wearing aids for almost 50 years and it is amazing how slow the technology changes. The dealers will woo you with all of the fancy graphs, channels and new ear pieces and none of them are any better than getting the right fitting. If your Widex dealer leaves or in some cases even if they... Read more

On a recent visit to the Costco hearing aid center located in Fountain Valley,Ca, I stopped at their hearing aid center and asked about the products and the prices. They are offering REXTON Receiver in the Canal hearing aids for $995.00 each which is an outstanding price for such a quality product. Independent Hearing Aid offices pay about $850 for the same product.The REXTON product is labeled... Read more

I ALSO WROTE ABOUT THE CHICANERY,DECEPTION,FRAUD, AND LACK OF ETHICS IN THE BUSINESS. I EXPOSED FALSE ADVERTSING,ETC,ETC,ETC. I... Read more

I have worn over 8 pair of hearing aids over the past 20 years, representing 7 different companies. First, I have found that the hearing tests that audiologists do have not changed much in 20 years and are not that relevant to hearing in the real world. Second, the engineers working at hearing aid companies do not understand something very fundamental: 90% of the time (at least), hearing... Read more

I have had my Audible hearing aids for five years now. Had to have them repaired 4 times at the cost of 300.00 dollars each time. I take them to have them cleaned and adjusted when needed. The feed back is terrible and I have complained about not being able to hear well with them and even worst cannot hear the words correctly. I just had my hearing aid repaired again and was told that the hearing... Read more
