My best ever week (last week) shows how much attitudes to hearing loss have changed in my working career.
When I started, it was extremely rare that males in their 50’s and early 60’s presented themselves for a hearing test.
Nowadays, this group represent the largest group of new enquiries!
Last week. as it happens, we had 3 new enquirers,
all business owners
all in the above age group
all had never worn hearing aids before
As an Independent Hearing Aid Dispenser, I try to represent the hearing aid market – thus, if a potential new user expresses no particular strong opinion about a product, then we’ll start their free trial process with a Phonak Audeo V.
Patient #1 was given a pair of V30 10 – and then a week later, having decided that the general idea was of interest to him elected to go for the V90 10.
Patient #2 was given a pair of V90 10 – and adapted to them incredibly quickly.
Patient #3 expressed a desire to use T-coil (loop) function and so was fitted with V50 312T.
I’m glad to report that all 3 achieved great results very quickly….
this is unfortunately misleading as all three had a typical hearing loss of straight-forward aetiology (origin). Many of our new patients do not acclimatize so quickly.
If you’d like to protect yourself from costly mistakes,
just call us for a FREE TRIAL, NO COST, NO COMMITMENT
