When it was suggested that I would benefit from hearing aids earlier this year, my wife and I spoke to several hearing aid dealers about their process and products. Based on these conversations, we decided to visit Mark Rother at The Hearing Aid Doctor to determine how we should proceed. Mark was an excellent choice as he first wanted to know my goals for improved hearing. Once I outlined what I hoped to accomplish, with his knowledge of the various manufacturers and their products, Mark was able to recommend a manufacturer, Oticon, and explained why their products would be an excellent fit for my situation.
He provided a pair of Oticons mid-range hearing aids (Oticon Nera 2) for me to test. I was frankly astonished how much these hearing aids opened up my world, bringing back sound I’d not heard in years. We then returned and switched to the Alta 2 hearing aids, which I tested for an extended period. Good as the Nera’s were, the Alta’s absolutely amazed me with their clarity and amazing sound in a variety of environments from noisy restaurants to theatre venues and listening to music. I continued to use the hearing aids while awaiting the new release from Oticon, the Opn. Once these were available, I switched from the Altas to the Opn, expecting to test them for a week. In actuality, after a day of use in different environments, I realized these new hearing aids were by far the best I’d tried. Their performance was so outstanding that after one day, I contacted Mark and met him to purchase a set of Opn units.
I’m extremely pleased with how comfortable all the Oticon products have been. I put them in my ears first thing in the morning and instantly forget they’re there until I remove them when I go to bed. They disappear and just WORK. The process of testing and trying different units and working with Mark to find what works best for me was absolutely painless. My wife is thrilled, as am I, with my ability to hear clearly, comprehend sounds, and spatially orient sound sources.
I’ve been very happy with these hearing aids and am extremely pleased with Mark and the way he handled our situation. I am frequently asked by friends and acquaintances about my experience and I never hesitate to recommend Mark.
