Since UBHearing opened its doors in 2018, we estimate we've saved Quinte residents millions of dollars on the cost of certified brand-name hearing aids. Our average price is over $2000 less than the industry average - per SALE! We're Quinte's best kept secret - but not for long.
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 $672 - about the price of glasses, and thousands less than the competition. Our starting price remains at $199/aid (when purchasing a pair). Our average and starting prices are even lower than "big box" hearing aid retailers and online retailers (who sell cheap "hearing amplifiers" without the benefit of in-person service).
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.
Let the show begin! Prepare to be amazed! First, let's start with our clinic fees.
#1: LOWER CLINIC FEES: Most hearing clinics charge a fee approaching $1000 for fitting each hearing aid. When you buy a pair of hearing aids, that fee typically doubles. UBHearing charges much lower clinic fees than traditional clinics and our fee is the same whether purchasing a single hearing aid or a pair.
Employing this "fair-pricing" strategy means that UBHearing has a substantially lower price on a pair of hearing aids, enabling those who need two hearing aids to get the help they need, without having to buy only one hearing aid due to a limited budget.
By purchasing only one hearing aid when you need two, you do yourself a great disservice. The negative effects may include a loss of ability to identify the direction of sounds along with the potential for reduced word processing ability on the unaided ear in the longer-term.
We spend the extra time with each client to ensure your hearing aids are programmed ideally for you. To date, all of our clients who had previously purchased hearing aids elsewhere report being much happier with the hearing aids they've purchased at UBHearing.
On a pair of hearing aids typically sold for $4000 what you save in clinic fees amounts to a savings of 25%. Abracadabra!
#2: UNBUNDLED SERVICE: When you purchase a hearing aid from one of our competitors, you'll find many of them charge in excess of $700 for a Service Plan. Service Plans are offered to clients in exchange for three years of “Free” hearing aid service (called a "lifetime" service plan by some clinics). In our years of experience, we’ve learned that most clients are capable of performing basic care and cleaning on their hearing aids and that less than 20% of clients typically require ongoing assistance.
Client's requiring extra assistance benefit from our affordable “Pay-As-You-Go” option. Most of our clients only pay a reasonable $60/year for an annual checkup, which includes both cleaning and an adjustment of their hearing aids. On a pair of hearing aids typically sold for $4000 what you save on a Service Plan amounts to a savings of 15%. Presto Save-o!
#3: DISCOUNT SHARING: We're very fortunate to receive discounts from manufacturers on all hearing aids we purchase. Our discounts continue to grow as we sell more hearing aids. Sharing those discounts with our clients is just one part of our "fair-pricing" strategy, and makes good business sense. On a pair of hearing aids typically sold for $4000, our discount sharing saves you 20% or more. Ala-kazam!
#4: "VALUE FOCUSED" PRODUCT SELECTION: Many people with common, mild-to-moderate, age-related hearing loss are completely satisfied with basic-level or value-level hearing aids. Most people do not require high-priced, “Premium Technology”. To determine what's best for each client, we do a thorough hearing test and lifestyle assessment. From these results, we are able to recommend only the options and features that will be the most effective for you. We are interested in maximizing value, which means we always choose the lowest-priced product that will result in the greatest level of satisfaction. On a pair of hearing aids typically sold for $4000, our Value-Focused product selection can easily save you 30% or more. Hocus Pokus!
There you have it. No magic. No sleight-of-hand. Definitely no bait-and-switch. While it may look like magic, the lower prices at UBHearing are the result of a simple combination of common sense and The Golden Rule.
So, what's in it for us? That's simple. We have earned the trust of our community by being the first hearing clinic to offer fair pricing for an essential product and service.
