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.
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:
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.
