“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.”
“You’ll never believe it!” Clint laughed. “I thought there was something wrong with my car!”
While trying free hearing aids for a week, Clint had noticed a lot of sounds he hadn’t heard in awhile. Some of them were more mysterious than others.
“After golf on Tuesday, I asked the guys to go for a quick drive with me in my car, so they could hear the sound my car was making. I’d never heard anything like it before. So, a couple of guys piled into the car and we drove around the block and, sure enough, there it was! The mysterious sound! Tick! Tick! Tick!
The phone rang a few weeks ago and the caller cut straight to the chase. “You got them hundred and ninety-nine dollar hearing aids?”
We love getting calls asking about our $199.00 hearing aids!
“Yes we do! Would you like to come in and give them a try?”
“Can I tell you a story?”
We love your stories at UBHearing!
Dan, a farmer, had been trying a pair of hearing aids from our Hearing Aid Library for a week. We don’t believe in having you buy before you try, so we happily loan hearing aids to clients for a week, after their hearing test, to see how they may improve their quality of life.
