If you’re suffering hearing loss, investing in a hearing aid will be a life-changing investment. When it comes to managing your hearing loss and making the best choice for your individual needs, the hearing aid prices can seem overwhelming. The team at Advanced Hearing Aid Centre is committed to making a difference to anyone concerned about or experiencing hearing loss.
How Much Do Hearing Aids Cost
The reality is that the price depends on the design, quality and technology used to make the hearing aid. Depending on your specific needs and the design of your hearing aid, it can cost you between $1,500 and $5,500. The cost of your hearing aid will depend on the following:
Audiological needs The first determining factor in hearing aid costs is the hearing needs of the recipient. Some people can correct their hearing loss with less expensive aids, while others will only benefit from more sophisticated (and expensive) devices.
Lifestyle needs The type of lifestyle one leads will affect their hearing aid requirements. For example, people leading a quiet lifestyle will use aids to enjoy activities with limited background noise. A more active person requires hearing aids that are designed to work with frequent background noise and meet the challenges of athletic activities such as hiking or cycling.
Technology level As with most electronic devices, more advanced technology tends to cost more. Some advanced features of hearing aids can include wireless functionality or smartphone compatibility.
Style and size of the hearing aid Hearing aids come in an enormous variety of sizes and styles. There is a demand for hearing aids to be less noticeable by some people, so hearing aid designers are constantly designing smaller and smaller aids. Hearing aids can vary in size and style, from tiny aids moulded to fit inside the ear canal to the bigger models that wrap behind the ear that most people are familiar with.
