Steal of a Deal or Just a Steal? Beware the Online Deal
Posted by Living Sounds
While the Internet has really opened up business opportunities and the ways consumers seek out information and make purchases, there’s still a long way to go when it comes to buying hearing aids online. While it might be hard to buy a pair of shoes online and be satisfied with the way they fit, it’s almost impossible to buy a hearing aid online and get optimal results.
The process of fitting a hearing aid is highly personal, it involves fitting the device to the person and their individual needs. The process of adjustment, testing and providing professional advice must be tailored to the individual to be successful. Mail order hearing aids might appear to save a few bucks but it’s the personalized process that people miss out on that really costs.
The reality is there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to hearing aids. Making the purchase online doesn’t cut out the middleman; it cuts out the service and the expertise. At Living Sounds Hearing Centre we have found that it’s our high level of service and expertise that makes our clients happy and that ensures client success with their hearing health. For anyone looking to purchase online we caution, “Buyer beware” and remind you that there is truly no substitute for caring.
