A few years ago here there was some discussion about the practice of Siemens I think it was of selling the same basic aids in apparently a somewhat de-tuned state in places like the Phillipines, where the prospects of moving many $5000 aids was minimal, so a new name and a cost of about $400.

I had the brand names recorded at one time but since lost, so I wonder whether anyone is still up to speed on re-badging in Asia?
