Child hearing aids
The group started very modestly. Founded in 1952 as a family business in Hanover, this first branch remained the only one of the family for almost 20 years. The second branch finally opened in Goslar in 1972, and more were gradually added. The hearing aid manufacturer audifon has also been part of the KIND group since 2004. A big step to expand your own range in the hearing aid segment. From then on, KIND integrated all steps, from development and production to sales and professional adaptation to the customer in its range of services. Today KIND hearing aids are not only available in the Federal Republic, but worldwide. The former family company has become an extremely successful large corporation and one of the greatest trainers in the industry.
Product range: individual hearing solutions made in Germany
KIND is advertising to produce all hearing aids in Germany. Not only are the specialist shops on site, but the associated manufacturer audifon also manufactures hearing aids directly in Thuringia. These products are then available in the KIND branches. The spectrum of hearing aids offered ranges from BTE to ITE variants. In addition, customers can have hearing aids made by KIND acousticians on site. Special in-ear headphones are also available here.
A special offer is MySound, a realistic simulation of different soundscapes as part of the hearing aid adaptation. In the KIND branch, customers can not only take different hearing aids with different functions with them and test them at home, but also receive a recommendation for suitable child hearing aids directly in the store. The specially developed MySound system is able to imitate typical listening situations of the customer directly in the shop and thus offer the most accurate settings possible. Various background noises such as the surroundings at a concert, at the train station or in the restaurant are just as much a part of it as children playing, whispering female and male voices or a howling siren. The customer specifies which situations frequently occur in his everyday life and, together with the branch employees, finds the best possible setting for his hearing aid model.
KIND hearing aid prices
The company is advertising to find suitable prices for all budgets. Customers who seek advice from a KIND branch can choose between various offers. On the one hand, the zero-tariff collection offers solid hearing aids at a price equal to the statutory additional payment. Legally insured customers can use this in their KIND branch, i.e. buy hearing aids for just ten euros. This basic solution from the company currently costs 785 euros per hearing aid for private patients. There are also individual solutions. Here, on the one hand, the choice of the individual models is larger, the adjustment options more diverse, but also the prices are higher.
With its hearing aids, KIND offers plenty of scope for personal design. Customers choose between different types and designs, but also the scope of the desired services. Many extras, for example an adjustment beyond the regular care period or cosmetic tubes are conceivable, but are also reflected in the prices of KIND hearing aids. But KIND does not shy away from comparisons. Customers who have an offer for a hearing aid from another specialty store can submit it and get a free comparison offer from the market leader.
What independent tests say about KIND branches
Both the Stiftung Warentest and the German Institute for Service Quality (DISQ) consider KIND in their current tests. It was not enough to be the test winner in both tests, but at DISQ the company still ranks second out of 13. In the area of advice, the branches scored very well – here the best individual result of all hearing care professionals was recorded. But not at the Stiftung Warentest. Their test certifies only mediocre advisory qualities and criticizes the lack of customer orientation in the practical use of hearing aids in everyday life. Each subject was allowed to test several hearing aids, but no explanation was given of how to use the individual models. Overall, KIND has a good place in the middle field in the foundation’s test and scores satisfactorily with a grade.
