One of the top questions we get at AccuHear is, “How much do hearing aids cost?” This is obviously an important question when considering any purchase, but especially important when we are talking about an investment of a few Hundred to a few thousand dollars.
Typical cost of hearing aids range from $1,000 to $4,000 each. The range is so broad because there are so many options available to choose. The main factors that drive the price of hearing aids is the quality of sound in the device and the cost of service from a provider.
Quality of Sound
Part of the cost of a hearing aid is the money spent on research and development by hearing aid manufacturers. Their goal is the make the best hearing aid possible. More than just turning up and amplifying the sound a modern hearing aid is much more like a tiny computer. This tiny computer can listen to speech and background noise at the same time. Processing these multiple sounds in the environment is key to clearly understand voices. How well a hearing aid can process sound and clarify it for the wearer is directly correlated with its price.
Cost of a Provider
Another part of the cost of a hearing aid is the cost of a provider to select and service the device. With dozens of hearing aid manufacturers offering dozens of different hearing aids each there are literally hundreds of options to choose.
