***UPDATE, April 1, 2020: UBHearing closed our offices on Thursday, March 19th and will be open, effective April 6, 2020, for emergency appointments only.

Again, we continue to monitor this situation closely and will provide ongoing updates as needed. We also encourage clients to stay up-to-date through Canada’s Public Health website.
Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you soon.
Is it real? Is it magic? How can UBHearing prices be so much less than expected? Our average price for a hearing aid last year was $525 - about the price of glasses, and thousands less than the competition. Our prices are even lower than "big box" hearing aid retailers and online retailers.
It sounds too good to be true. How can one small, independently-owned hearing clinic in Quinte offer renewed hope for those living with hearing loss while, at the same time, providing top quality products and best-practice services? Finally, behind-the-scenes UBHearing secrets are revealed! Watch how we magically transform a hearing solution that typically costs $4000 into a pair of hearing aids anyone can afford.
Targeted online hearing aid advertising seems all pervasive, especially if you’re over 65 years of age. Ads on social media and other sites promise low-cost, discreet “hearing aids” that are suitable for anyone. That's not surprising considering 10% of the population has hearing loss and 80% of those with hearing loss have yet to purchase hearing aids. That's a big market to tap into and there are plenty of people trying to cash in.
We have always maintained that we are doing something pretty special at UBHearing by improving both hearing aid outcomes and lowering prices. One of the ways we know we’re onto something, is that we have been receiving a growing number of referrals from area doctors throughout the Quinte Region.
There’s a popular saying that often holds true; “You get what you pay for.” At UBHearing we turn that old adage on it’s ear! Our lower prices actually result in higher satisfaction. It sounds impossible, but it’s true. We’ll tell you how.
At UBHearing™, we talk a lot about Transparency. We talk about Needs Based Pricing and Fair Pricing. But what do those terms actually mean, and why are they the cornerstone of how we operate at UBHearing™?
Transparency, in plain, simple, dictionary language, means, "The quality of being transparent." See-through. Nothing hidden. Everything out in the open. In the world of business, it means the full, timely, and accurate disclosure of information.
UBHearing is proud to offer a wide selection of quality, German-made, rechargeable hearing solutions for a never-seen-before , affordable price. These hearing aids are ideal for those with common mild-to-moderate, age-related hearing loss who want to experience the comfort and style of behind-the-ear hearing aids, high-level clarity, and the convenience of long-lasting lithium rechargeability.
“I have to be honest with you,” said Rochelle. “I’m already wearing demo hearing aids from another clinic that tested my hearing last week and, honestly, if this is what hearing aids sound like, I’m not interested.”
Rochelle had a unique hearing loss, dissimilar to the typical, age-related results that make up 80% of hearing clinic clients. Treating her as though she is “typical” instead of unique would not bear fruit for her or for her clinician.
“The clinic I went to last week told me that these are the kind of hearing aids I need and that they cost $5,000.00. But they sound awful. I wouldn’t pay $500.00 for them.”
It's a term bandied about as a joke, used to describe the seeming inability of others to hear us speaking. Often, these "others" are our nearest and dearest. Children. Partners. Students.
We refer to it as "Selective" hearing because it does, indeed, seem to be sporadic. Sometimes they hear us. Sometimes they don't. If we ask our teenager to take out the garbage, they don't hear us. If we ask them whether to buy dill pickle chips or sour cream and onion, they are quick to reply, "Both!". Interesting phenomenon, eh?
I love being a part of the hearing aid business. Particularly as a part of UBHearing. I love that we help people to hear.
Every now and again a viral video will make the rounds on social media showing something profound - like people who have never heard before hearing for the first time thanks to the technology available via cochlear implants. What we do is not so dramatic. But we know the dramatic impact of doing nothing.
