There are a number of factors that can affect the overall cost of hearing aids. During your consultation, your hearing care provide will alert you to why you may need or not need certain features and why some hearing aid styles and sizes may not fit your lifestyle.

Considering all the Factors

We encourage our customers to compare hearing aids, ask lots of questions, and educate themselves on the difference between different hearing aids and their features. Prices can vary significantly between the basic and premium models.

For example, there are inexpensive entry-level models that provide basic hearing improvement and make it possible to enjoy and appreciate conversations in small groups. Even these basic models offer a wide variety of functions and come at a very reasonable price. However, if you prefer a wider range of features and appreciate high-fidelity sound, you might be wanting to invest in a premium model with added features.

The price of hearing aid solutions is based on several factors. Criteria that can affect the price of hearing aids include:

  • Technology level
  • Features
  • Style of hearing aid
  • Size

Hearing aids with the latest wireless technology tend to be higher in cost than models with less advanced features. Custom In-the-Ear (ITE) hearing aids tend to be higher in cost than Behind-the-Ear (BTE) hearing aids.

As with any purchase, you will need to weigh your personal budget against wants and needs. Your Hearing Care Professional is there to advise you on which options will provide optimal hearing and include features that will truly improve your everyday usage.

What additional costs might be incurred apart from the purchase price?

When comparing the prices of different hearing aids, post-purchase costs should also be taken into account. It is worth considering, for example, whether multiple adjustments will be required before the hearing aid fits your ear perfectly.
You should also be aware of the difference in price between models with disposable and rechargeable batteries. Future maintenance and repair costs should also be factored in.

Do I need a hearing aid for both ears?

Generally speaking, if you have hearing loss in both ears, it is advisable to use a hearing aid in both. This is because with two functioning ears, the brain is able to distinguish the tiniest differences in sound, making it possible to attribute sounds precisely to your environment. An appropriate hearing aid should therefore be used in each ear in order to ensure problem-free hearing.
Just how expensive your hearing aid will be can ultimately only be determined on a case-by-case basis. The price depends on a range of factors, including the personal needs of the individual, and even on the contribution paid by the health insurance company. This makes it impossible to provide an “all-in” price. If you would like more information and a no-obligation cost estimate, you can ask for an appointment with one of our audiologists.
