Buying hearing aids online can be confusing, and the process can spark many questions, such as: How will I know which hearing aid will work for me? Who will help me fit my hearing aid to my ear? What type of hearing device should I get?
At Advanced Affordable Hearing, we make it easy to get a hearing aid online, and we are always available to answer your questions over the phone.
However, for your convenience, we've put together some helpful hints on getting a hearing device online below.
1) Know Your Hearing Loss Level
Find out what level of hearing loss you are experiencing with a visit to the doctor or audiologist. If an office visit is not an option for you, use our Online Hearing Check to get a general feel for the severity of your hearing loss.
It is helpful to know what level of hearing loss you have when picking out a hearing aid that’s right for you.
2) Research Types of Hearing Aids and Features
You may think a hearing aid is simply a hearing aid, but hearing devices are available in a variety of models and have different features depending on the type of hearing device and the model.
You can get hearing aids that run on batteries or hearing aids that are rechargeable. With rechargeable hearing aids, you can choose between models that recharge using cords and models that recharge using a charging station.
You may also want specific features, like a specific type of volume adjustment. Some hearing aids come with a volume button, while others are designed with a volume rocker or volume wheel.
As a company that sells hearing aids every day, we recommend that you give us a call at 1 (800) 804-0434 if you are considering purchasing a hearing aid, but are not sure which one you need.
We can ask questions about your hearing loss, lifestyle, and unique needs and help you pick the best hearing device for you! Even if you want to order online, you are more than welcome to give us a call!
3) Research the Company You’re Buying From
One of the best parts about buying your hearing aids online is the price! Hearing aids sold online are often far less expensive than those sold in your audiologist's office. However, you do have to be careful online and do your research!
When you purchase online, you want to be certain you are buying from a reputable hearing aid company. To make sure you are doing so, it helps to read customer reviews both on the company’s website and on third-party websites. Also, check the company's rating with the Better Business Bureau.
4) Find Out What Return Policies or Guarantees are Included
Choose a hearing aid or a pair of hearing aids that include a money-back guarantee or a trial period so you can test them out for a little while before fully committing.
A specific model of hearing aid may not work for your hearing situation or lifestyle, and you may need to return it or exchange it for a different hearing aid. It's useful to have the option to return or exchange if needed!
At Advanced Affordable Hearing, we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on our hearing aids. That gives you the opportunity to wear our hearing aids risk-free for a period of time.
It's important to us that our customers are satisfied with their purchase!
5) Make Sure Your Hearing Aid Fits
Unfortunately, we can't answer the question of how other companies handle making sure you get the right fit with your hearing aid, but at Advanced Affordable Hearing, we provide a variety of domes with each hearing aid order. That way, you can try them out and find out which one fits your ear most comfortably.
To decide what tube size you will need, we will ask for your height when taking an order over the phone or online. Most of the time, we can accurately predict the size you’ll need based on your height.
We include instructions for fitting your hearing aid to your ear with each order. In addition, we have created a short and simple video for customers on The Best Fit that shows you how to fit your hearing aid to your ear.
If you have any trouble with discomfort or if you have any questions, we are always happy to help you. We can often troubleshoot right over the phone!
We pride ourselves on helping people hear clearly at an affordable price, and we would love to help you hear clearly again today.
