After being diagnosed with a hearing loss, there are many questions that can arise about treating it with hearing aids. What style is best for your type of hearing loss? How active is your lifestyle? What options, such as rechargeable batteries or phone connectivity, are important for you? Above all, what will they cost?
U.S. data suggests that hearing aids typically range from $1000 to $4000 per hearing aid. So why the large range in price? What do you get in the higher end hearing aid that you would miss in an entry level?
The factors that influence the cost of hearing aids the most is the technology level within the device. Hearing aids are like tiny computers on your ears! An entry level can get you through in quieter, simpler environments, just as a basic computer would allow you to complete simple tasks like checking your e-mail or browsing the web. The higher the technology level, the better the hearing aid can process the sound around you, meaning it could better handle a noisier, complex environment. Just like computers, there are levels in between the basic and the highest performing computers, depending on how active of a lifestyle you have.
