Cheaper is not better
When it comes to long-term investments, you need to make well informed decisions about your purchases, especially when your health is involved. You may be tempted to purchase hearing aids over the internet, however there are a few risks to consider:
Purchasing hearing aids online means you risk buying a product that won’t work properly.
A hearing aid must be fitted by a qualified clinician, you may purchase the right hearing aid online, however there is no fitting or consultation with a clinician.
If you buy a hearing aid overseas, an Australian clinician might not be able to fix or adjust your hearing aid as some brands of hearing aids may have parts or technology that is not available in Australia.
This is why it is important to have a qualified clinician to conduct a hearing check and fit your hearing aids for you. Which will provide you with peace of mind, knowing that you can get the most out of your hearing aids.
