“Hearing the happy gurgles of my grandchild
is a priceless gift”

There’s no simple answer when it comes to deciding how much to spend on your hearing aids. How much you should spend to enhance your hearing depends on many factors. The value of your hearing aids is determined by the combination of amount of use and the type of performance you are looking for.

The experienced Audiologist at The Hearing and Balance Center can help you make the best possible choice based on the factors that matter most to you.

You and Your Hearing Aid

If you live alone, in the woods, rarely talk on the phone, never listen to the radio, don’t watch TV and rarely venture out, then your hearing aid use will probably be low and it doesn’t make sense to opt for a top of the line hearing aid.

On the other hand, even if you live by yourself, but you enjoy watching TV, talking on the phone, listening to the news on the radio and socializing with friends and family — your use is going to be high. In fact you’ll probably wear your hearing aids for 12 to 16 hours a day — you’ll want hearing aids that consistently perform well. Given your high use, paying a bit more is going to be a good investment.

What types of listening environments do your hearing aids need to work in?

If you only plan on using your hearing aids at home, the more basic units may suffice. On the other hand, if you want it to enhance your listening at home, in the car, at the supermarket, at restaurants, at concerts, at sporting events, in the yard and across a wide variety of listening environments, then you’ll want a more full-featured advanced digital hearing aid.

Of course the more you use your hearing aids, the more they will help you. You’ll be more engaged with your friends and family — you’ll get more out of life. Only you can put a price on the value of friendship, family and fully being part of the conversation.

The Price for Hearing Aids

Cost and value are two different things. Take out a piece of paper, list how much of the day and week you could benefit from using hearing aids, as well as the variety of situations where they would help you enjoy life more. Then calculate what it would be worth to you per day to be part of the conversation. That’s the value.

There are many styles and types of hearing devices. The cost of hearing aids ranges from $750 to $3,000. That means you can hear clearly and speak clearly in all kinds of situations for as little as $2 per day.

What Determines the Cost of a Hearing Aid?

Cost is determined by features and function. The more features you want and the higher level of performance you’d like, the more you’ll pay. Almost invisible hearing aids that work well across a broad spectrum of listening environments and are designed for someone with an active lifestyle are likely to be more costly (and work better) than cheap imitations.

How Much Should You Pay for a Hearing Aid?

During this adjustment period, you’re welcome to visit your Audiologist for any necessary fitting issues. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the hearing aids, you can return them for a full refund.
