Facts about Cheap Hearing Aids

Mar 14, 2008
If you have some experience with selecting hearing aids, you may know that a good, quality hearing aid can cost as much as $3000 or more. And, unfortunately, Medicare and most insurance companies do not cover the cost of hearing aids, which means you have to pay for them out of your own pocket. So, just how hard is it to find good, cheap hearing aids? In fact, it is not as hard as you think, but you need to know what the more affordable options are.

* The Style Effect

Many people get embarrassed with their hearing problems, and therefore would like their hearing aids to be as much invisible as possible. The completely-in-the-canal or in-the-canal aids are usually their first choices.

The bad news is that the smaller styles are usually the more expensive ones. Bigger styles, like behind-the-ear hearing aids, tend to be more affordable. They can also help you hear better than smaller styles. And, thanks to improving technologies, behind-the-ear models are getting smaller, sleeker, and more unobtrusive every day.

* Analog vs. Digital

The advantages of digital hearing aids are obvious. They are not just convenient but also offer the best sound quality. But, they are also the most expensive. If price is an important factor for you, consider a basic analog or programmable analog model. They tend to be much cheaper, which is great if you are on a budget. The sound quality might not be as good as with digital models, but analog models will still help to drastically improve your ability to hear.

* Search for Hearing Aid Wholesalers

Hearing aid wholesalers offer discounts on popular, high quality models. You can even find digital models that are drastically reduced from their regular retail prices.

Many wholesalers now also make their presence online. But, before buying from a wholesaler, it is important that you do your research on the brand and model that has caught your eyes. Reviews by consumers who have used the same model can help you decide whether or not it is a worthwhile investment. You should also make sure that you are buying from a reputable dealer. Of course, it is more ideal that you choose a dealer who offers extra benefits, like a warranty, a trial period, free batteries, and so on.

Many doctors or audiologists have very good knowledge about hearing aid discounts and wholesale bargains. So do not hesitate to ask if they can steer you towards any good deals.

By purchasing cheap hearing aids, you do not have to sacrifice your demand for quality. You just need to do a little bit research so that you can make smart decisions. Often, with enough homework done before hand, the cheap hearing aids that you choose can just do you as much good as the more expensive ones.
