Strips of foam material with adhesive backing is provided by some companies. This material is to be used to apply to the hearing aid to provide a better fit in order to reduce feedback and etc. Some cos. charge in excess of $12.00 for less than a dozen of this material which is only about 2 inches long. You can go to a kids' section in a crafts store and buy similar material in a pack of many sheets or a pack of rewards stars for $8 or $4,...

I have worn hearing aids for over 40 year's. I called Hearing Planet from their Internet address and phone number, they referred me to a hearing aid specialist in Akron Ohio. I was pleasantly surprised to find the Staff and Owners extremely experienced and helpful. I have been back to their office only a few times for computer adjustments, I know that this is the best service I have ever received and I hear really good now. I will recommend...

Hearing aids are high-tech you are paying-someone-to-fit-them. You buy a high end stereo its $4000.00 and its not minaturized to go in your ear and hearing aids do more. Plus-you-have-professional-care-involved, lawyers costs 150/hr plus. It amazes-me-its not 10 000.00 an-ear for-the-amount-of-time-and energy that goes into making them, researching-them and fitting them. Do you think your-audiologist-or-hearing aid-specialist-should-work...

Not a complaint as much of an observation. All of the people commenting and say that they are "professionals" there language a manor of speech seem to betray them. They are more like the "professionals" I have been dealing with. I am new to hearing aids and have yet to purchase my first pair.

If you have hearing loss your best course of action is to get hearing aids! Unless you want to fully isolate yourself from the world, please go out and get a hearing aid. Look for the best service provider and not just on price. Most service providers give you a time or number of appointments to fine-tune your aids. It is not an exact science, but more of an art form mixed with math. Every person is different and every ear is different so a...

You are judging someone on a topic you are ignorant about. This is supposed to be a place to comment. The piece was about the real cost of hearing aids. Think what you like but It is not your place to judge. Every time a client walks into buy hearing airs they are robbed. The audiologists are the thieves. Seniors get no benefits from Medicare for hearing aids. There were 3 senior people with limited resources there who were trying on each...

The base cost of 2 hearing aids, brand unidentified by audiologist was $850.00. I found out when I purchased my last pair of hearing aids in the Cleveland, OH area for $4800. 5 years ago. My insurance paid a small percentage of the cost. The audiologist billed them as a participating provider. Normally if you go to your regular doctor, you sign a statement agreeing to pay any balance of the insurance companies UCR (contracted fee with provider)....

if you need your hearing aids repaired, check the internet for lower cost. If you need new hearing aids check the internet for a better price. Most of the so called hearing aid stores are a big rip off including Cosco, they always try and sell you more than you need BEWARE I was told that my hearing aid would cost me $350 to repair and $3000 for a new one That $700 for repairing two and $6000 for two new ones. I paid $220 for repair of two and...

This is not a complaint but a balancing statement. I'm on my third set of Costco hearing aids and getting ready to buy the fourth pair (for $3000). My first audiologist retired, second one transferred and I dumped the 3rd because she didn't listen (ironic) and went to a different Costco. The audiologist there is great, works hard to adjust the aids to my hearing needs and makes sure I'm taking advantage of all the perks. Audiologists are...

me so your buying your forth set? in how many years? a set should last 3-5 years on average.IF your hearing changes, the fit changes, or you just want newer technology then look ...

I tossed my Siemens hearing aids in the trash. After spending over six thousand dollars for them and thinking I was set for life, it seemed each time I brought them in for adjustment, I left with less hearing. Eventually at the 5th year they pretty much both gave up the ghost and I was told that Siemens probably won't even repair them after 5 years. You could say they are disposable. The worst part is, I really only wore them about 50 times in...
