Finding the Right Hearing Aids
When it comes to hearing selection, there are many things to consider:
- Style - Hearing aids come in many form factors. For each brand, there are at least eight different styles. The two main categories are custom in-the-ear styles and the behind-the-ear styles. Both categories are also available in many different sizes. The style that’s appropriate will depend on your hearing loss configuration, dexterity, and your unique ear anatomy profile.
- Technology level - Each brand has 4 or 5 tiers of technology from the most basic up to the fully-featured premium tier, and several tiers in between. In general, the higher tiered technology will cost more but will also have more features that makes it easier to hear in challenging environments such as in noisy places, windy outdoors, speech from different directions, music, in the car, etc. The higher level technology also have more flexibility to adjust the sounds specifically for your hearing loss.
- Budget - There’s a wide range of prices, from $1,500 a pair up to more than $6,000. The average price for a pair of hearing aids are in the $4,000 range depending on the brand. Prices include the hearing instruments, along with all the services such as professional fitting, follow up visits, troubleshooting, programming, cleanings, annual checkups, and more. If budget is the most important factor, we can help you find more affordable options that can still be effective.
