Hear Better for Less

If you’re like most people, you put a lot of thought into your buying decisions. You want the best product for your money, and you’re not afraid to shop around to find it. So when it comes to hearing aids, how do you know if you’re getting a good value? And where do you start looking? Here are some tips on finding the best price for hearing aids.

After you have narrowed down your preferred clinic and audiologist and had a full diagnostic hearing test, it’s time to select the hearing aid that is most suitable for you. 

There is much more to the price of hearing aids than the devices alone. Hearing aid prices can vary greatly, so it is essential to shop around before purchasing. We provide complete hearing aid price transparency and a 100% Hearing Aid Satisfaction Guarantee.

Often the best outcomes are achieved when you can discuss your lifestyle and budget openly with your audiologist.

Ear Health supplies most hearing aid types and major brands of hearing aids. The best brands provide comparable features and performance at similar price points.

Trusting your audiologist’s advice on which device will suit your lifestyle and preferences is often the hallmark of a successful long-term solution.

Many people are eligible for subsidies and funding, so learn more about your hearing aid funding options.

Almost everyone will have access to the Ministry of Health’s (MoH) Hearing Aid Subsidy Scheme, which provides $511.11 (including GST) per hearing aid to adults (over the age of 16). For a pair of hearing aids, this will save you $1,022.22.

What Do You Pay For When Buying a Hearing Aid?

When purchasing a new hearing aid, don’t assume the device price tag is the only consideration for your overall costs.

You may wonder why the value of a hearing aid does not appear to be in the sum of its physical parts. We often value items, like jewellery, by the material elements they contain.

Hearing Aids Do More Than Amplify Sound

A lot of people think that a hearing aid will amplify sound. However, what it does is much more than that. 

Modern hearing aids take all the sounds in the environment and process them to help you understand speech clearly and easily. You’ll be able to hear conversations better, watch TV without turning up the volume too high, and listen to music without distortion.

Hearing Aids Are Medical Devices

One key difference is hearing aids are medical devices regulated by Medsafe, the New Zealand Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Authority.

A large percentage of the value of hearing aids is the technology they contain and the personal support behind the medical device to ensure it functions optimally for you.

Hearing Aid Manufacturers Invest in Research and Development

Hearing aid manufacturers invest massively in research and development with one objective: Improve the real-world performance of hearing aids and widen their appeal.

One example is Sonova which owns Phonak, Unitron and Hansaton. In the 2020/21 financial year, Sonova invested 177.9 million Swiss Francs or 290.7 million New Zealand Dollars in research and development (R&D).

At least five other manufacturers compete with Sonova, collectively known as the big six, and all of them invest similarly in R&D.

Manufacturers have made good progress with all of this investment in recent years. For example, hearing aid whistling (or feedback) problems are almost non-existent in most modern hearing aid solutions. People leaving their hearing aids in the sock drawer is fast becoming a thing of the past.

Hearing Aids Require Services to Support the Wearer

In addition to manufacturing the device, hearing aids require many services to work optimally for the wearer.

The services include:

  • full diagnostic hearing tests
  • fitting and setting up the hearing aid
  • personalised counselling
  • follow-up adjustments and tuning
  • replacement moulds (if applicable)
  • cleaning and servicing
  • repairs.

That’s why it’s vitally important you understand what’s included with the purchase of hearing aids.

At Ear Health, you’ll never wonder what services and support you are entitled to or how you can access them.
