What are the levels of hearing aids?
Hearing aids come in four general technology levels: Premium, Advanced, Intermediate, and Essential. Selecting the proper hearing aid greatly depends on your lifestyle and, to a lesser degree, the actual loss.
Are expensive hearing aids worth it?
In the hearing aid industry, spending more money doesn’t always bring better quality. In a case study by the Better Hearing Institute, direct-to-consumer (i.e., mail-order or direct-mail) hearing aids are just as beneficial as traditional, more expensive hearing aids.
Are there any government reports on hearing aids?
Recently, the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NAS) issued reports recommending ways to improve the access and affordability of hearing aids.
Are there any hearing aids that are not noticeable?
Hearing aid designers keep making smaller hearing aids to meet the demand for a hearing aid that is not very noticeable. But the smaller aids may not have the power to give you the improved hearing you may expect.
Do you have to go through an evaluation for a hearing aid?
If you want hearing aids but you don’t want to go through an evaluation process, or you just don’t want to invest a lot of money, we added two direct-to-consumer hearing aids to our list.
How is the price of a hearing aid determined?
Because we couldn’t measure overall price and programmability on most devices, we offered a price range for each hearing aid based on technology levels, which increase the costs of your hearing aids. We also used other reliable parameters, such as battery life, manufacturer warranty, and customer satisfaction.
