Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 10, 2010
With all the hearing aids available in today’s marketplace, how does one make an educated purchasing decision? Thanks to Adviceonhearingaids.com, consumers may now decide based on the best information available: unbiased user reviews.
“A manufacturer can explain the nuances of a hearing aid in a detailed a manner, but that does not reveal the real-life benefits or drawbacks of the particular product,” says Dr. Kelly C. Calkins, AuD, director of Adviceonhearingaids.com provider relations.
Adviceonhearingaids.com moderators aim to remedy that problem. Visitors discover which aids are uncomfortable or overly sensitive to background noise. They browse through posts that explain which aids may be difficult to calibrate, and they view the ones that vastly exceed expectations. To ensure the sharing of completely unbiased opinions, the site offers no hearing aids for sale.
Instead, advancements in audiology technology are discussed by the people whose opinions matter most – wearers of the hearing aids themselves. Expert opinions on hearing aids and cochlear implants are prevalent and encouraged, and the sense of community fostered by online message boards pervades the site, which is free to navigate. A trusted provider network that stretches nationwide is shared as well.
“This is a one-stop information portal for those who face hearing challenges,” Alkins says. “It is designed to educate and inform – and hopefully help.”
