Advanced features can have an impact on hearing aid cost for hearing loss sufferers.
Hearing loss is debilitating, frustrating and can lead to significant loss in your quality of life. The answer to your hearing problems might be to choose a modern hearing aid, but cost factors can make choosing the right model a little difficult.
There are several different factors that go into determining how much a hearing aid costs. One of the most misunderstood factors is size. Many people assume that the smaller and more compact the hearing aid, the higher the cost will be. While size does play a role, it’s really more about advanced technology.
Hearing aid cost will be higher with more embedded technology. For instance, if a hearing aid offers a great deal of adjustability, the cost will increase simply because the device is more expensive to manufacture. If a hearing aid includes advanced features like Bluetooth or “sound zoning”, the cost will also go up.
With that being said, it is precisely these advanced features that make modern hearing aids stand out from those that came before. For instance, Bluetooth connectivity allows hearing aid wearers to connect directly to their smartphone or portable music player. Sound zoning helps wearers hone in on the conversation at hand, rather than inundating them with sound from around a crowded room.
