A Family Reunion

In 1959, Richard Lowry saw a newspaper ad about the exciting new field of hearing aid sales. Never one to pass up an adventure, Richard left his stable job and responded to the ad. Shortly thereafter, Lowry Hearing Aid Services was founded. The rest, as they say, is history.

Economy Hearing was founded in 1989 by John Bachman. One thing you have to know about John is that he is a born entrepreneur. Early on, everyone knew he would do big things in the world of business. At the age of 18 he took a tiny 7-11 convenience store that had failed under multiple franchisees and turned it into a top producer. By 20 he had owned and sold two more 7-11 locations. In 1978, John was introduced to the hearing aid industry by Richard Lowry – his future father-in-law. In the following decade, John branched out and expanded the hearing industry in many different ways, but always while working for someone else. In 1989, he combined his knowledge of the hearing industry and his natural entrepreneurship to form Economy Hearing. The rest, as they say again, is history…

Except those histories are now coming full circle.

Lowry Hearing and Economy Hearing are merging together. The next generation of the family is bringing all of Oklahoma under one unified banner – an expanded Economy Hearing.

For our existing patients of both Economy and Lowry, we want you to know that nothing is changing, other than we now have more locations for you to receive service throughout the state. Everything is staying in the family, you included 🙂

Mom has had healing aides for many years now. Her old audiologist had her visiting different ENT’s to try to improve her hearing. We saw Scott today at Economy Hearing Aides and he told her that her hearing loss was from her brain not processing the hearing and suggested she...

Scott went above and beyond to give me a great experience choosing the correct hearing aid and doing the leg work to make sure I received the best price available! Sometimes you get lucky and stumble upon the perfect place the first time. Many thanks to Scott and Amy!!

I lost cone on my right hearing aid. Called to set up an appointment to fix it. Instead of an appointment they had me come right in. They not only fixed it but also checked the fit and adjusted the sound volumes. Now that's what I call customer service.

Absolutely amazing people. I did not get a hearing test. The reason for this is because of the insurance that I have. The hearing test is free but the deductible for the hearing aids would be 3x the cost of one hearing aid. Mr. Lowry explained this to me trying...
