A brand new hearing aid can cost nearly $3,000 from a dealer.
But you can buy pretty much the same thing for less than $250 elsewhere. Why is this?
Let me tell you some secrets of the trade that will tick some hearing aid dealers off:
The number #1 reason a hearing aid gets so expensive is the custom fitting. This process only costs about $50 to the dealers, but they charge over $1,500 to the customer for this process! That is why so many dealers will insist you NEED a custom fitting, because it’s their biggest profit center.
The majority of hearing aid wearers can’t tell the difference between their custom hearing aids and a one-size-fits-all hearing aid.
With the new adaptive silicon materials hearing aids are made with nowadays, you don’t really need a custom fit solution anymore. Custom fittings were necessary 10 years ago, but not any more.
If you go with a one-size-fits-all hearing aid you can save more than $2,500!
The #2 reason a hearing aid gets so expensive is the extra features. Just like a car dealership tries to make you spend more by adding on useless features, a hearing aid dealer will do this too. However if you just want a standard hearing aid, you can often get these for under $1,000. Unless you need some of the more advanced features such as Bluetooth (which hardly anyone uses), you don’t need to pay more for these features.
Then the #3 reason a hearing aid gets expensive is the brick & mortar costs the dealers have. However if purchased online, you can save massively since online retailers don’t have to build those costs into their prices.
If you follow these three steps:
–Buy a one-size-fits-all.
–Don’t pay for needless features.
…..you can buy a $3,000 hearing aid for less than $250!
