I would like to purchase hearing aid verification equipment for my new practice, but I am afraid it will soon become obsolete due to the rapid changes in hearing aid technology. Any advice?
That is a great question. The original Verifit from Audioscan is now in its 14th year, and even the very first product that we shipped will still run the latest software upgrade. It is important to us at Audioscan that our equipment runs the latest software and is backward-compatible. Our software upgrades are free. We are avoiding the obsolescence issue that you would get if you were using a PC-based system, which will become obsolete in 3-5 years. We try to design a platform for longevity, with a minimum of 10 years. In the case of the original Verifit, it was 14 years.
Verifit 2 has a new platform with capabilities to test the latest hearing aids. In keeping with our company philosophy, we will be developing the software over the next 10 years to meet the needs of hearing aids as they are developed.
Thank you for your question. Wishing you all the best with the new practice. If you would like more information about the features and benefits of Verifit 2, please visit www.audioscan.com or the Audioscan Expo Page on AudiologyOnline.
