HEARING AID PRICES: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

How much do hearing aids cost?
It’s a question we get asked a lot – and the answer isn’t too simple. There can be noticeable price differences on hearing aids, depending on whether you are searching for discount hearing aids or high-tech hearing aids. Several factors impacts the hearing aid price. Explore some factors, below.
Factors for hearing aid prices
The price of hearing aids depends on several factors, including:

  • The level of hearing aid technology and features you choose
  • The model of the hearing aid e.g. behind-the-ear or in-the-ear
  • Level of service and aftercare offered by the Hearing Care Provider
  • The availability of Hearing Care Providers in your area.

The only person who can give you an exact cost for hearing aids are your local hearing care providers.

Your hearing care professional will tell you which types of hearing aids are suitable for your hearing loss and will advise you on the best solution for you considering your budget and lifestyle. They will then program the hearing aids to meet your specific needs.
Hearing aid technology
As for the true price of hearing aids – their actual value - there’s a lot we can say. That’s because a lot goes into that price. After all, hearing aids are incredibly advanced, high-tech computers.

The price of hearing aids isn’t measured by just the plastic core you can see on the outside.

Inside most hearing aids are five main components:
  • A microphone
  • An amplifier (or a signal processor)
  • A microchip
  • A receiver (also known as a loudspeaker)
  • A battery
Put all these together and you have a device that can make even people with the most profound hearing losses hear speech like never before.

Personal service and professional aftercare
The modern technological components factor into the price of a hearing aid – but they aren’t all that goes into the value of your hearing solution.

The price of hearing aids also includes a high level of customer service and a varying levels of aftercare, dependant on your chosen local hearing care provider.
