The comment: "Hi, I just read backwards a bit and wondering about the Costco hearing aids. Can you expound . Do you just go buy them off a rack and get what you think you need? 1500 might sound like a lot , but the 5000 and upwards is ridiculous. Thanks for your time."
In answer to your question, the hearing aid center at Costco works exactly the same as any super-expensive hearing-aid place; the cost is less, that's all the only difference. Cliff has been wearing Costco digital hearing aids for five years; the new one is his second set purchased there. You'll have to have a Costco membership, which is $60. Cliff recommended their hearing aids to his brother, who's worn hearing aids for several years and paid much higher prices. He is ecstatic with the ones he got from Costco. They are guaranteed for three years, and they will replace them once in three years if you lose them. They spend an hour or more doing the testing, then they spend at least another hour when you go pick them up, tuning them up just right for your needs.
All hearing aids, even if you paid $5,000, usually need replacement after five years.
I recommend Costco to everyone for glasses and hearing aids. Click HERE for the information from the Costco website.
