Hearing Aid Prices 2019

How Much Do Hearing Aids Cost in 2019?

Hearing aids come in a variety of brands, sizes, shapes and colours. They also come in many different prices and it can be difficult to understand why some hearing aids are pricier than others. In general, hearing aid prices start at around $1,300 for standard devices up to over $4,500 for the premium technology. Extra features such as Bluetooth streaming or rechargeable batteries may also affect the final price of the hearing aids.

The cost of a hearing aid is generally based on the level of technology of the hearing aid, the more premium technology levels come with a more premium price. Depending on your lifestyle or your level or type of hearing loss you may or may not require those additional specialised features or technology.

Hearing aid prices often reflect the amount of technology and programs available in the hearing aid. Usually, there is a tier system. While the tier name differs by brand, the system is broken down into different technology tiers.

Standard technology hearing aids  often have the most basic requirements of any hearing aid. But they also have the least amount of channels and extras than the advanced and premium tiers. standard tier hearing aids are the cheapest and price range begins at roughly $1,500 for many brands.

Advanced technology hearing aids have the basic necessities of the standard tier, but also have additional benefits such as more channels and specific features, like noise cancellation and/or streaming sounds from a device to the hearing aid. Because they have extra features the prices are higher than the standard tier, roughly starting at $2,500 – $3,000.

Premium technology has all the bells and whistles possible for that hearing aid type. They usually have a high amount of channels, programs, features, and technology. And they have powerful models to handle many technological programs. The premium technology hearing aid prices are higher because of these features, roughly starting at $3,500 – $4,500.

Does a more expensive hearing aid mean it’s better?

Not necessarily. Hearing aids become pricier based on the technologies packed within. For example, a hearing aid with several channels, frequencies, and additional programs will cost more than a simplistic hearing aid with very little programs.

That said, if you don’t require additional programs and features, then a simple hearing aid would be perfect for you. But if you do enjoy additional features or need specific ones for your lifestyle (e.g a hearing aid that offers great wind noise cancellation because you work primarily outside), then a hearing aid with more features may be necessary.

The better hearing aid is the one that fits your lifestyle. This is specific to you, your choices, and your requirements.

Below are a couple examples of basic, moderate, and expensive hearing aids based on how much technology and programs available. While one brand or tier is not above the others, you will be able to see which one fits your needs better.
