    Actually only gov. pensioners and children get the subsidies. Simply retiring does not entitle you to any subsidy. And the best health fund rebates are around $1,000 every 3 years. For a limited time...

    Mine were $11,000 - 2 years ago. Our dollar was a lot better then also.

    Yes, the Phonak domes are a lot softer. I also found the Phonak receivers slightly smaller which helped. There are also a few other people who use a different brand dome to their receiver. As long as...

    Don't give up until you have tried for longer. Until you adjust to full gain correction in any hearing aid you will not really be able to tell what the quality of the sound will be like. The comfort...

    I'm guessing BT5 is the next high end phone inclusion then. Mobile phones are already quite mature products so they need new features like this to differentiate them. Until the feature is in a...

    The audiologist could have a web clinic once or twice a week and book appointments just like any other clinic. It would be good for all those people who live a long way from the clinic or who find it...

    Do any of the audiologists in your area do free trials with no money up front? Do they stock more than one brand? If they work for a company do they get paid commissions for the sale of HAs? (Do more...

    Long threads are great to read when they keep to topic and are relevant - especially when you are new and just need to absorb as much of the terminology and information as possible. They can get off...

    Do get a second one. A lot of the best features of benefit require two to work together and communicate with each other to give you the best result. You are less likely to struggle to hear speech...

    That depends on the HA and they sit above my glasses starting at the apex(top) of the area behind my ears. They go about half way down the back of my ears so they sit high and don't take up the whole...

    Tell her everyone already knows she needs HAs and false teeth but is too stubborn to use them. Tell her she could be a trail blazer - and provide friends with a positive example. They may even...

    She has to want to hear. The best option is the HAs if they helped as you said. You need to figure out why she does not want to wear them and work on that problem - cosmetic issues? - discomfort? -...

    Normal hearing is 20 dB or less. You have hearing loss if that is your audiogram - or is it your mothers?

    I wear glasses all the time and switch to readers for continual close work. I put on my glasses first then the HAs sit on top of those. No noise involved. My hair is mid length so not much of a...

    They will go on a lost/stolen list and serial numbers will trace that they are not the property of the person who bought them online. No one will program them and there is a good chance the...

    In Australia my health insurance pays a maximum of $250 annually for glasses which cost me an average of over $1,000 annually for progressives and separate readers. They pay $1,000 every 3 years for...

    My guess is it would take a lot longer to be available in Australia so I will get to see what happens in the US first. An aging population would lobby the government to subsidize it here but like...

    It will come from universities and pharmaceutical companies. Not the HA manufacturers. It will be controlled by government and ENTs.

    Since the Brio 2 is not the exact same aid as the Audeo V90, I suspect they change the name so they do not get accused of claiming it is exactly the same. Differences may be small but I'm sure...

    My V90s have never had any echo. It sounds like they have an excess delay. The V90s actually have a program which reduces echo in large reverberant rooms. Ask your audiologist to have the Phonak rep...
