The cost of hearing aids has actually decreased relatively 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 hearing aid to fit the needs of the wearer; manufacturing costs; and time spent with the professional who selects, fits, programs, adjusts and services the instruments.
Averaged over the lifetime of the instruments (4 to 7 years or more), the cost per day of a pair of highly featured, advanced digital hearing aids is about $2 – less than a large latte at your favorite coffee shop. 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. I’d say that is one worthy investment to make.
