The cost of a hearing aid is tied to it’s advanced features. Typically, the more feature rich a hearing aid, the more expensive it is. Your need for features is directly tied to the complexity of listening environments you find yourself in (meetings, talking on the phone, watching TV…). With greater situational need comes greater technological need.
What pricing should I expect for hearing aids?
The actual range is quite wide, from $500 for a single basic hearing aid to $7,500 for a set of advanced digital hearing aids. So yes, hearing aids can be expensive!
Do I need more than a hearing aid?
Hearing aids aren’t always the only consideration when it comes to hearing help. A range of other assistive listening devices (ALDs) exist, providing benefit to both hearing aid users and non-hearing aid users. In general, ALDs exist to make up for the short comings of hearing aids (i.e. noisy situations, distance situations, and poor acoustics).
What is pricing for an Assisted Listening Device?
Like hearing aids the cost range for ALDs similarly has a wide continuum. This cost range is based directly upon the intricacy of listening environments. The more complex the environment (i.e. high noise, long distance, and poor acoustic environments) the more advanced the ALD, and therefore greater price. The ALD genre includes everything from a basic personal amplification device (helps in face to face conversation in quiet) all the way up to advanced adaptive wireless technology (parties and restaurant interaction). Given this, the realistic price range for ALDS spans from $150 up to $2,000.
