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, what might be the most important question, how much do hearing aids cost?
According to national averages, hearing aids typically range from $1000 to $4000 per hearing aid, which is quite a large range! Two main factors determine the cost of the hearing aids: how well will the hearing aids perform in different environments, and what services will you 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 would. The cost may also include services from your audiologist for the duration of the warranty, which is typically 1-3 years.
Your audiologist should review all of these options with you and help find the best fit for your lifestyle AND budget. At Gardner Audiology in Palm Harbor, FL, we have multiple options available, starting at a budget-friendly option – $490 per hearing aid – and ranging up to $3500 per hearing aid for exotic premium-level technology. Whatever your needs may be, we have an option for you!
Recently, there has been a lot of buzz regarding over-the-counter (OTC) devices. OTC devices are supposed to improve access to hearing by providing lower cost options for people with a mild level of hearing loss. While this may be a great option for some, it may not be the best for others. It is worth considering after you consult a Doctor of Audiology. At the very least, it is worth having an accurate hearing test to determine what your best options are.
