Post #5664291

I have had hearing problems for over the past 15 years. I recently had a complete audiology test and it was determined that my hearing loss was affecting my ability to discriminate words. The audiologist determined that I needed (2) Unitron (sp?) hearing aids at $1200.00 each. This seems awfully high. I know my father got two for about 1600.00 several years before he died but do not know the brand.

I asked why most people I know only wore one hearing aid and was told that this would cause some sorta sound discrimination. Am I being ripped off?

Please respond if you have had any experience re: Hearing aids. I do want to improve my hearing ability but feel $2400.00 for hearing aids is exorbitant.
