Price and Performance of hearing aids

The price of hearing aids will depend on the aid's performance level; premium, advanced, value and economy.  The performance is determined by the technology in the aids, which in turn defines how well they will perform in different situations.

Premium level hearing aids provide better performance in more demanding listening situations such as restaurants, clubs or parties. In consultation with one of our audiologists, you will find the best hearing aid solution for your lifestyle needs and for your budget. Read more.

Your choice of hearing aids will depend on the situations where you would like to hear better i.e. your lifestyle. The table below will give you an indication of the performance level that will suit your lifestyle. For example, if you have a very social lifestyle and need to hear in lots of complex noisy environments, a premium hearing aid will better meet your needs.
