Unveiling the Truth Behind Rebranded Name Brands: TruHearing and the Shared Secrets of Hearing Aid Accessories
In the fast-evolving world of hearing aids, the market is flooded with various brands promising innovative solutions to improve the quality of life for those with hearing impairments. Among them, TruHearing hearing aids and their network have emerged as a prominent name. Offering cutting-edge hearing aid technology at a low cost. However, wink wink, a closer look reveals an intriguing connection between TruHearing and its main brand, Signia. In this blog we will shed light on shared accessories and challenge the notion of rebranding.
Many manufacturers rebrand for various reasons. Rexton hearing aids are essentially rebranded Signia hearing aids, sharing the same underlying technology and features. Rexton, TruHearing, and Kirkland (current 2023-24) are all “Signia” hearing aids.
TruHearing, a notable name in the field of hearing aids, is owned by either Signia or WS Audiology, depending on the specific context and timeframe. TruHearing operates as a provider of hearing aid solutions, offering advanced technology to address various hearing challenges. The ownership structure may have evolved and is essential for individuals seeking accurate information to verify the current ownership status. Whether under the umbrella of Signia or WS Audiology,
The TruHearing Phenomenon:
TruHearing has gained recognition because TruHearing serves as a third-party network that collaborates with various advantage plans. Through these collaborations they offer individuals with hearing impairments access to comprehensive as well as affordable hearing care solutions. With these partnerships with Advantage Plans, TruHearing extends its reach to a broader audience, therefore facilitating easier access to advanced hearing aid technology and related services.
Advantage Plans join forces with TruHearing and other third-party networks providing members with exclusive benefits, including discounted pricing on hearing aids, complimentary hearing exams, and personalized consultations. We wrote another blog delving deeper into the hidden agenda. Feel free to read that article next.
As individuals explore their options for hearing aid solutions within the framework of Advantage Plans, TruHearing’s third-party network is one of the strongest due to its deep pockets and large network of providers. As consumers explore the options available, they may notice similarities between TruHearing and its main brand, Signia. This begs the question: is TruHearing truly an independent entity? How has it become so strong with powerful alliances with top insurance companies?
TruHearing Network partners with healthcare insurance plans such as Blue Cross Blue Sheild, Humana, UCARE, and others. Since 2013, an increasing number of people have become aware of TruHearing hearing aids, leading to uncertainty about where and how to obtain the necessary accessories. Very similar to the rebranded name of “Kirkland”.
