I went to a hearing clinic last year and the prices they quoted for hearing aids was way more than I was prepared to pay even with the benefit of good health care insurance cover.

 to be honest with you guys, can you realy put a price on your hearing, mine cost me $4500 and i would have paid more if needed, . im deaf in one ear and less than 40% in the other and i missed out on a lot not hearing  so to me price was not a prob.

but thats my opinion. 

as they say , opinions are like ass$%^es, everyone has one just that some stink
