Thread: Price on Oticon OPN

  1. Default Price on Oticon OPN

    Thinking or biting the bullet for a pair of OPN. Would like to hear (no pun intended :-) ) what a ball park price would be.

    Thanks,

    From a clinic, they run from around $3200 to twice that based on the level selected. There are 3 levels: entry, intermediate, and premium.

    Ok I checked with Oticon and there is only level for the OPN hearing aid. So I now am totally confused why it was said that there were 3 different levels.

    Take what you read on a forum with a grain of salt. Not everyone is a professional, and some will assume without knowing all the facts.

    Thank You Rasmus. I am new to HAs so I was seeking help. My insurance pays only $2500 and the out of pocket will be hard on the budget.

    Well these are the facts - I found OPNs for online $1850 ea, online $2495 ea and my local office wants $2730. My only connection to someone that has HAs is a close neighbor who started his adventure with less expensive ones and after 4 sets tells me that the newest top of the line HAs are far superior and he recommended I do not go through the less expensive ones to learn that lesson. My insurance only pays $2500 every 3 years so I really don't want to learn that lesson and spend 10 yrs to get good ones. I have asked the online price guys (not sure I should posts names, I will have to look at the forum rules) how exactly do I get service and warranty. Not really a clear answer yet. The office has to be in the BCBS network in order to file the claim for $2500. To even further complicate things on one office is close (8 miles) and it is Beltone only. Closest other HAs brand offices are 100 + miles away.

    Thanks

    Most of the info you are looking for has been actively discussed already. In network requirements don't seem to give quite what is indicated. It somewhat looks like a private discount or finders fee is a component you wouldn't see shared by the clinic with the insurer.

    "Quality" of aids are somewhat misleading. The cheapest aids and the most expensive use the same hardware. Eliminating problems in noisy situations is what the premium seeks to provide. The middle level provides some of that and works for a lot of people who want to upgrade from basic platform.

    I've been on a journey looking to get the Oticon Opns. I've worn Oticon Agil Pro for 6 years and like them. I'm ready for something new. I trialed Oticon Alta Pro 2 and like them, but during trial became aware the Opns were being launched. I returned Altas. I've looked around at pricing quite extensively. Local Audi quotes $6,900 for 2, Discount Hearing Aids of America quotes $4,990 for 2 (go to local audi and order through Discount Hearing Aids of America, and buy hear sells for $3,598 for 2! You send buyhear your hearing test. They order them, program them, and sends you packet (including aids, of course) which allows them to adjust remotely over internet. They offer 60 100% money back guarantee. I ordered them and look forward to seeing if this works out. buy hear is probably not for everyone, but I feel confident enough to give it a try. I'll post my experience after they come in.

    Opns are awesome.

    Just replaced my Alta2 Pros yesterday. Its hard to describe exactly how they are better. I just have so much more awareness of sound details and where it all is, and how people sound is so much more human. I thought it was good before, but now it is just better. Music sounds better to me, more alive and rich. My glass windowed office does not reverberate at all...

    When I wore Alta Pros, I could whistle and cause a warble at one frequency.

    When I got my Alta2 Pros, I heard better, but I could hear that warble in a small range of frequencies.

    With the Opns, to compare against Alta2 Pros is like comparing Alta2 Pros against nothing. And I hear absolutely NO warble at any frequency.

    I know as well as anybody that every time a new product comes out, we think it is so much better and we wonder how they could ever top it. And I know that they always do. But it is hard for me to imagine how they could do better than this.

    After live speech mapping, my gain settings are lower than they have ever been, which results in a more natural sound quality for me, but there is no reduction in clarity. I still score essentially normal in aided sound field testing. I lowered the gain on my Alta2 Pros to mimic the gain in my Opns and my aided score dropped by 7%. That may not seem like much, but it is statistically significant.
