What affects the price of a hearing aid?
Though our prices are bundled, you may notice substantial differences, which mainly come down to the level of technology and whether you need one or two hearing aids.
How Hearing Aid technology affects the price of the hearing aids recommended
The technology used in hearing aids is developing at a similar speed to all other technology, which means it’s progressing fast. Also like other types of technology, the more up-to-date it is, the more expensive it is, often resulting in substantial differences between top-of-the-Line hearing aids and more basic ones. The differences between these levels of technology lie in their:
- Noise reduction capacity – ability to remove background noise so you can tune into what you really want to hear.
- Wireless connectivity – allowing you to stream phone calls and music directly into your hearing aid for optimum sound quality.
- Programmability – whether they amplify based on your specific type of hearing loss or uniformly.
- Directional microphones – targeting specific sound sources in front of you, making it easier to hear speech.
- Positioning – is it placed behind your ear or completely in your ear canal?
- Customization – is your aid molded to your ear specifically?
Questions to ask before you purchase a hearing aid
Though the immediate instinct when considering a purchase is to focus on the price, when choosing the right hearing aid, it’s worth considering how much a higher price tag may improve your quality of life. As such, there are a few questions you should ask yourself before you make that final decision:
- Which hearing aids are best suited for my specific hearing loss and lifestyle?
- Do you have a trial period?
- What type of sound amplification meets my needs?
- Would I be more comfortable with an in-ear or external hearing aid?
