Island of Misfit Products

As a multi-line distributor, Oaktree Products offers a variety of audiology and hearing industry products intended for resale to your patients and/or for use in the clinical setting. Sometimes, items get returned for whatever reason; in most cases, it’s simply a matter of the wrong item being ordered.  Occasionally, an item that works perfectly well is returned to Oaktree Products but it cannot be put back in our main stock because it may not have all the original packaging and/or was slightly used and cannot be sold as new.  Rather than condemning these items to the Island of Misfit Toys, these products make it to the gold mine known as the Oaktree Products Outlet Store.

The Oaktree Products Outlet Store is a dedicated location on the Oaktree Products website that showcases specially selected, overstocked, discontinued and/or slightly used products at mark-downed prices.  Products tend to move in and out of the store pretty quickly so it’s not a bad idea to get into the habit of checking out the Outlet Store once every week or two.  For example, in need of probe-tubes?  One partial pack of about 117 (as opposed to 120) Precision Probe Tubes are available for those performing real-ear measurements with either a Siemens, Madsen, MedRx, or Frye machine.  Looking for a hot air tubing shaper?  There is one in perfect working condition without the original box (user manual included) but you were going to throw that out anyway, right?

To see items without pricing, go to the Oaktree Products website, select the BROWSE CATALOG button located in the lower left-hand corner, and then click OUTLET STORE from the menu bar located on the left-hand side.  NOTE: if you click the green Oaktree Outlet Store button on the right-hand side of the page, it will take you to a description of our Outlet Store.  If you are interested in seeing pricing and potentially purchasing products from the Oaktree Outlet Store, you must log into the website using your account number and password.  From there, click Outlet Store from the menu located on the left-hand side.  Happy bargain shopping!
