Hear, hear – hearing aids prices plummet
IT was the high prices being charged by private hearing aid companies that inspired Eye-based Graham Clarke to set up his online hearing aid business hearingaidsattrade.co.uk.
Graham, an experienced hearing aid audiologist of many years practice, was appalled that consumers were being enticed into paying up to £6,000 for a pair of hearing aids.
As an example, the latest, state-of-the-art hearing instrument, the Oticon Agil Pro would set you back about £6,000 a pair from most national companies. The same aids can be purchased from hearingaidsattrade.co.uk for less than £3,000.
Clients will typically save between 30 per cent and 50 per cent when buying through his online business – a saving of anywhere between £300 and £3,000.
Hearingaidsattrade is a network of fullyqualified independent hearing aid audiologists covering all areas throughout the UK. They offer a friendly local service and pride themselves on client satisfaction. Its website has attracted a phenomenal amount of clients since its launch in January 2010.
Graham said: “Our ethos is simple, it is to provide hearing aids at the lowest possible price whilst at the same time providing a top quality service. Most people nowadays compare prices for almost all their purchases – especially the more expensive ones. It’s taken a little longer for the ‘silver surfer’ to catch on, but they’re here now and they’re here to stay.”
Graham advised that anyone who is considering buying private hearing aids should check on the internet first and only to contact companies which are prepared to show their full price list.
He said: “It is common practice for most hearing aid retailers to advertise hearing aids for a few hundred pounds and then prescribe much higher-priced technology.”
