You need to do some research!

Okay yes maybe it doesn't cost the maufacturer of hearing aids that much to make their products but they put a *** of a lot of money into reseach and developement to creat the amazing things that hearing aids can do now-a-days!

There are so many things that hearinf aids can do it's unbelieveable... I bet you didn't know that they have bluetooth build right in, they can block out background noise, they can hear sounds from a certian direction and many other things.

The reason they are so expencive is because there are sooo many people who are a part of those hearing aids... they are researched, created, tested, advertised, shipped, programmed to the patients needs... and all of those people who do something have to get paid!!!!

So next time you would like to run your mouth and act like you know what your talking about I suggest you do some research.

It cost about $300.00 to make a good hearing aid and that includes R&D, I read this on the Internet about a guy doing some research on hearing aids in Germany

I'm 47 and have had aids for 23 years, most services offered by a 'office' are not required. It would be nice in australia to have a no frills option.

Good luck testing, programming, and fitting your own hearing aids. Within a week you'll have a nice pair of ITD aids - In The Drawer :)

Yes, do your research. If you are here blogging and in need of hearing aids you have the capability to purchase them form an internet supplier.

Check out HearSource.com

Hearing aid for a fraction of the cost of buying hearing aids thru traditional distribution channels.

And you are able to adjust them yourself. If you can't adjust them yourself they (HearSource) will adjust them for you via your own internet connected computer.

Good luck.

I agree! I think that people don't understand what a hearing aid really does, and what the provider can make it do!

A hearing aid is not something you just put in your ear. An amplifier is... You can't just throw something into your ear and expect good results. Taken into consideration are acoustics, physics, listening environments, comfort, lifestyle, wide dynamic range multi-band compression, limiting, gain, real ear measurements, the type, nature, and degree of loss, among countless other factors.

Much of a good dispenser's time is spent after the hearing aids are fitted with counseling, aftercare, and programming. Hearing is subjective and can be measured, but the true answer is the patient, which is why it's so important to find an office you trust. To sell a hearing aid is one thing; to develop a working relationship with a patient is another.

Acknowledging a hearing loss can be difficult and being taken for a ride by a shady outfit is the last thing someone wants when coming out of denial. Hearing aid research continues to please the market's consumers and to educate the 35 million americans who choose not to get help. Regardless of who dispenses, (ENT, audiologist or dispenser) a few thousand dollars is inexpensive for the quality of life hearing aids restore on a daily basis. Negotiating a price for a hearing aid is like asking your dentist if his filling's prices are competitive or worth it as he's drilling. I spent over 4000 dollars on braces and took them out in a year. I told the dentist I wanted to leave them in a few more months just to get my money's worth!!! One may think that hearing aids are expensive, but you must consider the one-on-one attention your dispenser gives you every time you come in for a cleaning or adjustment, loss and damage insurance, and the value of someone who listens to your concerns.

You can pay $10,000 for a state of the art hearing system, but the quality of the sound may only be as good as your dispenser's ability. Imagine a singer who goes to the recording studio. A lousy engineer in a multi-million dollar studio could make them sound awful, while a grammy award-winning producer with limited equipment could make htem sound amazing. YOURS IN HEARING. HAPPY LISTENING

Other Company in Reston, Virginia - Very Rude

They called me and left a nasty message saying I needed to pay my bill as soon as possible. Well I had already paid it off with another company over 2 weeks ago.

I called back and they were very rude on the phone and said they had no proof that I even paid. I told them they needed to call the other company because I paid it off. I told him he was being rude and he said you are unbelievable, you debtors are such a joke when you are saying we are rude. You are the ones who need to pay your bills.

So I called the other company and they said that I was all paid up and done. I told them the situation and they said they would call the company.

I called back to speak with a manager and he was the same way. He said they had sent mail and I should have gotten.

I told him if I had received it then I would have called them to make a payment. He continued to say that I needed to pay my bills and that they sent me the mail.

He too did not believe I had paid the bill and was very rude. Does anyone know of an agency to contact about them?

Other Company in Dallas, Texas - Folks- ALWAYS use a Virtual Credit Card!!!

I see scams all the time on the internet. So, I ALWAYS use a virtual credit card when I purchase from the net.

I then cancel the card so the most the crooks can get is the onetime charge. Check your credit card's website to use a virtual credit card.

Hornymatches

If you check the photo's on Hornymatches, you just might find some really beautiful ladies, such as some of the ladies who have modeled for Playboy in the past for some of their secondary publications...I am very suspicious of many of these...ummm, if they are model beautiful, do you really think they need to use this site to find a guy? Ummm...duh!

Too bad Hugh Hefner doesn't come out with a real and trusted website that actually links up local men and women so they can get to know each other in a fair fashion without trying to rip ever one off.
