When deciding what hearing aid is best for you, there are multiple factors to consider. What will be the best option for your specific hearing loss? Your lifestyle? Are their specific options you are wanting from the hearing aid? And of course, how much do hearing aids cost?
Looking at national averages, hearing aids range from $1000 to $4000 per hearing aid. That is a large range! The cost is determined by two main areas: how well the hearing aid can perform in different environments and the services you will receive from your provider. A lower cost entry level option may not perform as well in group settings or noisy environments as a higher cost premium option. Depending on your audiologist, the cost may also include their services for the duration of the warranty (typically 1-3 years).
Your audiologist should review all of these options for you and help find the best fit for your lifestyle AND budget. At Gardner Audiology in Clearwater, FL we have options ranging from $490 per ear up to $3500 per ear to fit your needs.
With all the buzz regarding over-the-counter (OTC) devices, it’s hard to know where to turn. OTC devices are supposed improve access to hearing by providing lower cost options. While this may be a great option for some, it may not be the best for others. It is worth considering spending a little more to have access to a Doctor of Audiology that is able to assist you with your hearing healthcare, or at the very least having an accurate hearing test to determine what your best options are.
