“Now there are alternatives to very expensive hearing aides, everyone deserves to be able to hear… and save money at the same time.”
The baby boomers are getting older, a lots of people have hearing loss of one kind or another or perhaps you have a mother, father, or grandparent that needs a hearing aide… and it’s common to have some kind of hearing loss as we grow older.
But some of us have had greater challenges such as loud noise that we endured when we were kids and young adults… and diseases such as scarlet fever that can affect our hearing.
At the same time hearing aides have become easier to find and the quality of hearing aides is getting better all the time.
Unfortunately unlike cellphone technology and computers hearing aides are very expensive.
Over the last few years cell phone prices have dropped by 18% per year… while hearing aides have stayed very expensive… upwards of $3000 for 2 hearing aides or more.
Take for instance a Iphone 6 - there is much more technology in a Iphone or equvalient android phone than you’ll find in any simple hearing aide.
For me that does not compute… it really does not make sense at all.
Now some doctors have come out with inexpensive hearing aides that work for most people. It’s not to say that with very serious hearing loss that $3000 is not worth it… IT IS… but insurance does not cover hearing aides, and everyone has to pay this expense out of their own pocket.
Also I went to have my hearing tested at Costco for FREE… which is a great deal, and they don’t work on commission. Yet when it comes to getting a hearing aide there is still the $2,600 price for 2 hearing aides… and hearing aides only last 5 or 6 years. http://www.costco.com/hearing-aid-center.html
So in the long run a people have to buy another set of hearing aides very soon (in 5 or 6 years)… another out of pocket expense that most cannot afford.
And those who are elderly (The elderly being the ones that need hearing aides the most) who live on fixed incomes… they cannot afford this kind of cash outlay every 5 years.
But now there are alternatives that will work for most people. Even Amazon sells hearing aides that work for most people and have wonderful reviews. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_sc_0_13?url=search-alias%3Daps...
And there are lots of companies on-line that will sell you a set of 2 hearing aides for less than $400. Plus some have a 45 day check out the merchandise and see if it works for you or return it for a full refund no questions asked policy, and many are FDA approved. http://www.mdhearingaid.com
And now there are some new hearing aides that work together with your smartphones, to create a device that you can customize to exactly what you need by changing the app on your phone… and the hearing aide responds automatically to your settings. http://www.soundworldsolutions.com
Also there are companies with almost the exact same product that they sell at leading hearing aide sites for less than half the price… and these hearing aides are adjustable for your type of hearing loss. Plus they ask for your hearing test so they can adjust the hearing aide to what you need. http://www.embracehearing.com/collections/frontpage/products/embrac... and http://www.audicus.com
You can also Google “Inexpensive hearing aids online” and lots of places that have good inexpensive hearing aides will come up.
And if you Google “Free On-line Hearing Test” you will finds lots of places that give free on-line hearing test - FREE and it’s on-line in the comfort of your home.
But you have to remember that lots of regular hearing aide establishments work on commission, not to say they are trying to take advantage of people… but at the same time we all need to save all the money we can in this day and age.
I have listed a few hearing aide retailers on-line, I am not saying they are good, bad, or anything else… you will have to check them out and find out what works for you.
You deserve to be able to hear and hear well… without giving up your life savings.
I for one will not pay $3000 for hearing aides.
