Question about Audibel Platinum Hearing Aids

I recently bought a pair of Audibel Platinum hearing aids for a total price of $6300 for the two.


My friend had bought Platinum Audibels a few years ago and when we compared them, mine were larger than hers. Since most thing are being made smaller, I questioned the man who sold them to me and he said they made them larger because they had improved them in several ways.

This does not sound logical--is it the truth? My late husband had gone to Starkey's in Minneapolis to get his aids and I had always said that is where I would go. Now I am wishing I had because I paid more for what seem to me to be older models. Am I correct?

Battery size effects hearing aid size
by: Anonymous

The width of a hearing aid is dependent on battery size being used. The larger the battery, there is more power usage and it's effect on longevity factored in. The slimmer model uses smaller batteries with less power that lasts longer.

This could explain the difference in size of hearing aids.

Hearing Aids and How They Fit
by: Anonymous

Hi I wear an audible hearing aid and I look at the model and see if they are they same model and sizes change by the size of your canal and not your friends. Everyone has different sizes and if not happy , you should have asked if they could be sent back and made smaller.
