Why Are There Differences in Hearing Aid Prices?

 

Hearing aids range in price from as low as $10 to as high as $8,000 if you go to a local provider. The difference in prices is due to cost to seller, the hearing aid model, and the hearing aid's features.

Why do the prices of hearing aids vary so much?

A very low priced hearing aid will only amplify basic sounds, without any regard to background noise or other distractions. Conversely, a more expensive hearing aid will be programmed to fit your personal hearing loss and preferences. 

Local providers tend to charge higher prices because they must pay to run a brick and mortar location. With the prices of rent, staff, and making their own high income, these prices get passed down to the customer. On top of that, manufacturers put a significant amount of money into research and development, driving up the cost of the hearing aids even higher.

Which price of hearing aid should I buy?

You should purchase a hearing aid that will work best for your hearing loss. If you have a minimal hearing loss, a personal sound amplifier will be able to assist you in hearing a little bit more clearly. While we do not offer personal sound amplifiers, we have the inexpensive HC206 for a mere $149 per aid.

If you notice you have issues with women’s and children’s voices, or tend to not hear well in noisy environments, you probably want a hearing aid with more features. Features to limit background noise or increase high frequency sounds will help you to hear the sounds you were missing before. The HC12 is a fantastic hearing aid with adjustments for mild to moderate hearing loss.

It’s important to not only look at price, but your level of hearing loss and your lifestyle. If you have a more severe hearing loss, a basic amplifier will only make you more frustrated. You need to know which sounds you aren’t hearing and what you have trouble to find the best hearing aids for you.
