People often ask me what I think about the hearing aids at Costco. I have actually heard good things about their hearing aids and the prices are excellent. As with buying any hearing aid, you should know what features you are looking for. I called several Costco Hearing Aid Centers and asked if their hearing aids have t-coils. I was usually met with confusion, uncertainty, and “I’ll have to call you back”. So, once again, shop around at different Costco’s and get a good audiologist. The April issue of the “Costco Connection” magazine has an article about their hearing aid centers on page 80, called “Listen Up”.
I was very happy to see the last section of the article, “The Scoop on the Loop,” all about t-coils and hearing loops! This was from an interview with Steve Frazier, the New Mexico State Coordinator for HLAA. It should be great for spreading the word about hearing loops! Their newest hearing aid, the Kirkland Signature 4.0, comes with a t-coil. It is also Bluetooth capable with an optional streamer and has a rechargeable battery! At $2,000/pair sounds like a great deal to me. More details about the Kirkland Signature 4.0 here.
If you have tried any of Costco’s hearing aids, please tell us about your experiences.
