  • What if you are transient? Or relocate a few times a year. It sounds like bundle is not the right choice.

  • Please make a video about the Kanso from Cochlear and about Cochlear Implant activation and about the Aqua Case from Advanced Bionics vs. the Neptune Soundprocessor from Advanced Bionics

    Sorry That was a lot

  • Hey Dr. Olson. I love your videos. Can I Send You Some Information About Another Online Hearing Aid Company (based in Arizona) that was featured on the news for scamming people?

  • The issue I have come across with some hearing care providers is they do not offer an unbundled option, or maybe they do not advertise it.
    One of the cons of having a bundled service which I am not sure if it was mentioned in the video is that a person may not use the paid for hearing care to the max...i.e., avoiding those routine hearing aid maintenance checkups. I think the choice depends on the individuals needs and if that person is going to be proactive in getting the necessary hearing care. The Hybrid option looks appealing. Any way Dr. Cliff did a good job explaining the three options.

  • Than You for the videos You do they are so helpful I'm getting hearing aids soon and now I have more info on the whole process

  • To be knowledgeable to what you pay and for transparencies sake we need to know the markup for hearing aids. In other words what is the average percent of profit for a pair of hearing aids to the Clinic? Or what is the average dollar profit for a pair?

  • Hmmm.... "If you know you'll need lots of follow up visits, get the bundled plan", etc. How the hell would a person know what they will need in the future? This is the big unknown isn't it?
