With the explosion of the internet and the availability of products online, I often get asked where to buy hearing aids. There is an overwhelming choice out there and it can be very confusing. How do you know what to buy and where from?
I have used a few different methods over the years. I have outlined 2 of them here and shown why I used them.
Amazon hearing aids.
If you know what you want, then Amazon can be a great place to get it. They have a vast range of hearing aids and accessories to chose from. You may only need a sound amplifier to boost your general hearing or may be looking for a product to help with tinnitus.
Amazon has a range of aids with prices from $/£10 up to $/£2500. If you have a particular model in mind and want to do a price comparison, then this can be the way to go. It is simple and straightforward. Just click on their site, chose what you want and buy.
At hearing direct you can take an online hearing check as a starting point if you think you have a hearing issue. They also offer advice on how to read and understand an audiogram if you have had a full medical diagnosis. Using this information, they will then tailor an individual response to your hearing needs.
The range of hearing aids available here is virtuously limitless and they will have a price range to suit just about everyone’s pocket. They also have a vast range of hearing accessories to help with everyday use and their help and information pages are second to none. I have used hearing direct on countless occasions for advice and information and they have impressed me every time. They are pretty much a one stop shop for all hearing related issues. You can also request a free catalog online.
Purchasing a hearing aid is such a personal thing and it is really down to the individual as to what type they want/need, what their budget is and what type of service they require.
I have used both of the above and been very satisfied. If you require any further advice or would just like to talk to someone about hearing issues in general, then please get in touch.
