The internet hearing aid sales industry is encroaching on the traditional hearing aid dispensing business model, offering hearing aids that are far less expensive and available without the involvement of audiologists or other hearing aid professionals. The industry is re-examining the entire hearing aid distribution system, which critics argue is too cumbersome and costly, hindering reasonable and affordable access to the hearing help that so many older Americans need.
“The audiology profession is obviously scared, for good reason, right now,” said Abram Bailey, an audiologist and chief executive of Hearing Tracker.
One of the major players in internet based affordable hearing aid market is HearSource. HearSource has been providing quality hearing aids to the hearing impaired market for over ten years. Most notably HearSource leads the industry in the “Personal Programmable” hearing aid market.
