“People ask us all the time what the best hearing aid really is. The answer to this question is simple yet challenging at the same time. The answer is that discovering the best hearing aid is a process of personal discovery.
I like to talk about shoes to explain this concept to people. I have a size 11.5 foot, but not all 11.5 shoes fit me. For the past 30 years I have worn Asics because they fit my foot well. Sketchers and Nike both make great athletic shoes, but neither fit my foot as well as Asics do. It was a matter of trying different brands to find what type of shoe fit my foot best.
The same thing applies to hearing aids. The one the fits you best will be THE BEST brand to you. There are six major manufacturers that make 95% of the world’s hearing aids.
Most providers carry only one or two brands of hearing aids. These manufacturers are trained to sell technologies, promote lifestyles, and upsell to the most expensive model.
We’d rather show you what a hearing aid is capable of so that you have the power to make a good consumer decision. Our core belief: given the correct information, and a real life experience with space and time, the patient will be able to make the decisions that are in their own best interest.”

What is the Demo Program?
Parker Hearing Institute’s Demo Program is HERE!
Our unique Demo Program allows you to try new technology hearing aids in the real world for two weeks! We want to fit you with the devices you need for better hearing health.
Our intention for offering this program is closely tied in with our core values. We believe when someone is given the proper information, the time to experience technology, and the space to make decisions they will choose what benefits them best.
With so many new circuits available and with the wireless and phone-controlled features built into modern hearing aids, it may be confusing to decide which model suits you best. We want to put the power into your hands because you understand your needs best. For this reason we believe that you should have the option of trying them out, switching to another model if needed, for 15 days for each model.
This demo program is intended for purchase decisions, not loaners during repair. Loaner hearing aids have a different usage policy. Call into our office to find out more.
Parker Hearing Institute’s Demo Program Policy:
A patient may demo up to two hearing aids at one time. Two hearing aids make up one circuit. A circuit may be loaned out to a patient for a two-week demo trial period. Only one circuit will be loaned each Demo Program. Each Demo Program will come with two appointments: one fitting appointment and one consultation appointment.
The Demo Program costs $180. There is no obligation to buy demoed hearing aids and no hidden fees.
If you are using a 3rd party payer such as Epic, Amplifon, Hearing Care Solutions or other, you may demo one circuit under their plan.
If someone wishes to be fit with an alternative circuit after their original Demo Program, it will cost $180.
If someone wishes for additional adjustment visits during the demo period, there will be a service fee based on hourly rates.
