Hearing aids are made by multiple manufacturers, similar to any other product on the market. In the hearing industry, we commonly refer to them as the ‘big six’. Starkey, Phonak, Oticon, Widex, Resound & Signia are the major hearing aid manufacturers that most people think of. There are, however, several other smaller companies that can be included as well. At Gardner Audiology in Palm Harbor, FL, we are able to work with any of these manufacturers.
At your initial appointment, we of course will determine your hearing level, but we will also look at your lifestyle and your hearing needs; What works for one person may not work as well for someone else. You may be just as successful with one manufacturer as another, because in many ways, the provider that is helping you with your hearing aids is more important than the device itself. In simple terms, the device is just a tool, and your provider is the person that directs that tool.
A Gardner Audiologist will review your wish list, your hearing history, severity of hearing loss, and your budget to come up with recommendations that fit your needs. You will probably be surprised by how many options are available! We are here to answer any questions you may have and find the best solution for you. We want you to be successful with your hearing aids as much as you do!
At Gardner Audiology you are assured to see a doctor, not a salesman.
