Frequently Asked Questions for Hearing Aids near Pittsburgh, PA


Why Choose Audiomed Hearing?

Because we do hearing testing and hearing aid fitting correctly. And most of my competitors don't. And if I'm going to do a job, I'm going to do it right. Every one of our Patients has their hearing aid fitting verified for performance using industry standard performance benchmarks included with all hearing aid firings and adjustments. We've been in business for more than 20 years and have fit thousands of Patients.

All Hearing Aids Do is Just Make You Hear a Little Better. That's All I'm Looking for, Right?

You may be right, but you may also be wrong too because you're oversimplifying something you have not quantified, because it's difficult to quantify hearing loss without specialized calibrated equipment and training. And the standard battery of hearing tests to determine hearing aid fittings do not truly indicate what a Patient needs, because they were standardized and specified more than 40 years ago. We've come a long way since then in performance features for hearing aids and determining what kind of technology is needed to do the job right. And because of technological advancements in hearing aid technology, specialized hearing tests now exist to determine what features you need to do the job right. These are performed at no extra cost to the Patient and take minutes to perform. Industry statistics indicate that odds are, you won't get these tests performed by other Fitters at all.

Do I Get to Try a Hearing Aid Before I Buy?

Yes you do. For 30 days or more if necessary. But if we don't follow the testing and verification procedures I outlined above, then we are just guessing at the outcome. And if both the Patient and the Fitter are going to invest that much time and effort, it just makes sense to do it right the first time instead of just trying a bunch of different models for days or weeks to see which one works. Do it right the first time, and go live your life.

Why Do Hearing Aids Cost So Much?

Mostly, it's because of Management costs. My competition has layer after layer of Management and they really add to the costs of everything. These are people you don't know about or see and are there to make sure that the Hearing Aid Fitters they manage are charging enough to pay they're salaries too. In other words, this is the reason why Audiomed prices are much lower. We deal directly with Manufacturers (there's only half a dozen anymore) and we do not have layers of Managers to pay for. Same hearing aids, lower prices and better hearing aids fittings in the first place. Audiomed Hearing is clearly the better choice.
