If this is not allowed on this page please remove. I have been seeing ads on FB from Audien hearing technology. I posted this to their page so that others would not waste even the low cost of $89.00 on something that will not help. They may or may not allow the comment to be posted since as I said, I read no negative comments. "I can only assume that the comments on this page are being screened because it is very strange not to see at least a few negatives. If this is posted, Audien, how about telling some of the caveats. Ear buds are not suitable for everyone if they are to be worn for an extended period. I am 70 years young and have worn hearing aids since my early 40s. Less expensive hearing aids (hearing aids being the operative description) worked when my loss was not as profound. As it got worse I needed better I.e. more expensive aids. To blame the audiologist as the primary reason for cost is false. Even if you do not want extras such as Bluetooth connectivity or other amenities remember, technology costs and you get what you pay for. These devices sound more like amplifiers. Amplifiers simply make things louder, regardless of the frequency or volume. While hearing aids are tailored to hard of hearing people with loss in various frequencies. And as such, in my case and others even the best hearing aids cannot fully return hearing to "normal". Caveat emptor .
Just want to give a shout out to Carol and her team! Just completed a very thorough exam and adjustment for dear husband's hearing aids. Must say, he is hearing better than he has in years. These folks ROCK!!!
The folks at Albuquerque Hearing and Balance are the best. Carol and her staff have served four generations (from the youngest to the oldest) of our family with caring, compassion and professionalism. We would not trust our hearing needs to anyone else.

Albuquerque Hearing & Balance is committed to being the leading provider of hearing & balance services in New Mexico. We exceed our patients’ expectations

Albuquerque Hearing and Balance started as a successful one-woman practice for Carol L. Clifford in 1998, and has grown into New Mexico's largest private audiology group. Carol attributes Albuquerque Hearing and Balance success to her staff of audiologists and their support staff. "I truly believe we have the most talented, compassionate, skilled, dedicated audiologists in the state. We change people's lives on a daily basis," she says. Hearing loss is one of the most common health conditions in the US. The audiologists at Albuquerque Hearing and Balance craft custom solutions for their patients, who range from newborns to age 104, and when a patient is fitted with the proper device and their ears are opened, it can be quite emotional. Carol's stories are chock full of anecdotes, like a 17-year-old girl who burst into tears when her custom device allowed her to hear for the first time since she was five.
