Potential bargains out there?

January 13, 2019

Here’s my list of perfectly good hearing aids that may be in stock in some outlets, especially independents.

If they are, there may be a good discount available!


PHONAK AUDEO B-DIRECT in all versions
A quite revolutionary hearing aid on its launch (late 2017), being the first to enable hands-free mobile calls. However, it’s now been superseded by the PHONAK AUDEO MARVEL.
It’s crazy to dismiss a hearing aid purely on whether it’s the ‘latest thing’ or not. The Audeo B-Direct is a great product.

PHONAK AUDEO MARVEL 312 in all versions
This was launched only a few weeks ago, but almost immediately it has been outstripped by the AUDEO MARVEL RECHARGEABLE. The battery driven Marvel will be in stock in places and my guess is the audiologist concerned will want to shift them.

These hearing aid reviews has been compiled by me, Robert Donnan, with a little help from our 4 main contributors (who are all patients of mine). I’m an independent private ‘hearing aid dispenser’ (HCPC registered). Hopefully, we can help debunk some over-marketing of hearing aids, and give you, the potential hearing aid consumer a better insight into the hearing aid market.
