Multiple times a week I am asked, “are Costco hearing aids any good?”. After all, it is natural to question whether or not buying a medical device at a big box store it a smart idea. Depending on who you ask, it seems as though individuals who purchased their hearing aids at Costco either LOVE them or HATE them.
How is this possible?
The hearing aid technology is similar to what you would find in an audiology clinic and they are even required to use Real Ear Measurement when programming the devices inside of a Costco Hearing Center. So how could there be so much variability in the level of satisfaction by Costco hearing aid wearers?
