Hearing care packages are designed to allow you to choose the hearing care features that fit your specific hearing needs, your lifestyle, and your personal preferences.

How Much Are Hearing Aids? | A WA-Based Hearing Expert Answers

by | Jul 20, 2023 | Hearing Aids, Patient Resources

One of the most common questions that we’re asked is “How much are hearing aids?

It’s a legitimate question and one that’s not easily answered, as you probably already know because you’ve been doing some research.

Hearing care clinics tend to keep their cards close to their vests when it comes to pricing out their hearing aids. There are two main reasons why.

Before I give you the two main reasons why audiology clinics are keeping secrets, allow me to give you a partial answer to your question, because we like to give our patients an open door when it comes to choosing the best options to fit their hearing health needs.

Most hearing care plans start at around $2,500 and can range up to $7,000 for more premium options, depending on the services included.

So, let’s walk through those two reasons.

#1—Choosing Your Options

How much is a car or truck?

That depends on what you want and whether you get a standard package, upgraded package, or custom features, right?

Just like a new car, hearing aids come with a set of standard features as well as various levels of technology, styles, and customizable features. Hearing care packages are designed to allow you to choose the hearing care features that fit your specific hearing needs, your lifestyle, and your personal preferences.

Since your lifestyle and personal preferences are factored into the equation, it’s difficult for us to determine exactly what you’re going to need before you’ve had a hearing assessment and communicated to us what better hearing objectives you want to achieve.

#2—Hearing Aids vs. Hearing Care

Most people believe that better hearing is a matter of finding the right set of hearing aids.

This is one of the most difficult challenges the hearing care industry is working to overcome, because finding the right doctor of audiology and hearing care team is actually far more important when it comes to achieving significantly better hearing outcomes.

While we’re happy that the outdated stigma attached to hearing aids is disappearing, according to MarkeTrak statistics, their survey also showed that “the best solutions for consumers’ hearing difficulties will be found when the consumer initiates their journey with the help of a hearing care professional.”

The reason people tend to believe hearing aids are expensive is because they aren’t aware that they are paying for many hours of time in counseling, programming adjustments, troubleshooting, maintenance, and repair—all designed to improve your quality of life and provided by trained professionals.

A Bit of Friendly Advice

If your objective is to buy a pair of hearing aids for yourself, then there are loads of online options for purchasing a pair and then fitting yourself. But doing this is a little like buying dental equipment and trying to do your own dental work.

After enough searching on the internet, you’ll eventually find the answer you’re looking for in terms of dollars. However, a less expensive, one-size-fits-all hearing aid won’t come with what you need to ensure that your unique hearing challenges are being accurately addressed.

Since 2017, we have helped thousands of people throughout the area achieve better hearing and a more active, independent lifestyle.

What we’ve learned is that better hearing requires great hearing technology coupled with a great team of hearing care professionals focused on meeting your specific needs.

That’s why we focus on delivering great hearing care using methodically developed treatment plans designed to treat you as a patient and partner on your better hearing journey. Our partnership includes access to our ongoing service, rather than just selling you a hearing aid.

Online and over-the-counter hearing aid dispensers are in the “business” of selling hearing aids, which means that prices might be lower, but they come with a compromise.
