Expensive is a relative term. The cost of hearing aids has actually decreased over time, when compared to the rate of inflation.
Today, hearing aids range from approximately $1,000 to $4,000 each, depending on the technology selected. Several factors contribute to the cost of hearing aids, including: research and development costs; customization of each device to fit the needs of the wearer; manufacturing costs; and time spent with the professional who fits and services the instruments for the lifetime of the product.
Averaged over the lifetime of the instruments (3 – 5 years or more), the cost per day of a pair of highly featured, advanced instruments is about $3 – less than a large latte at your favorite java joint. And hearing aids are proven to not only help you hear better, but to actually improve the quality of life for people with hearing loss and their families.
The ability to hear clearly is to fully immerse yourself in life and to enjoy all the sounds that surround you. That’s not a dollar-and-cents consideration any more than a pair of eyeglasses comes down to dollars and sense.
Hearing is beautiful. It adds a long-lost dimension to everyday life. You hear sounds that you’ve forgotten but didn’t know you missed – until you hear them again. And when you do, you’ll understand why hearing aid myth busting is catching on.
