The hearing aid industry has changed over the last thirty years, hearing aid manufacturers have merged in buyouts, they have bought retail operations and they have moved into different markets. It is hard to keep up as a professional, let alone as a consumer. But I think it is important to understand who is who, as it helps you to understand who you are dealing with and perhaps why you are being recommended the hearing aids you are. Hearing Tracker, a fantastic US website resource for people who are researching hearing aids publishes an industry map yearly. They have just updated and re-designed it for easier use.
It's worth a look, the more information you have, the better your understanding. You can find it here: https://www.hearingtracker.com/map
