In a world of abundance, finding the right product can be a long and tricky process. When it comes to hearing amplifiers, the choice seems even more daunting. Chances are you’ve never bought a hearing amplifier before. That means a lot of questions will come up once you start your research. For example, what is the difference between hearing aids and hearing amplifiers? What kind of hearing loss do I have? And, one of the big ones: how do I know a certain hearing amplifier will work well?
I want to answer those questions, and especially the last.
Most online buyers start or end their journey on Amazon. If you start your research with me, you might end on Amazon, too. When you click a link to Amazon on this website and buy something there, I make a small commission (around 3%). It doesn’t change the price for you, and it doesn’t change the reviews, either.
Because I believe you can tell when I’m phoning it in. I call a spade a spade. I will tell you which hearing amplifiers to avoid buying, which ones only make sense for some people, and which might work better for you personally. After all, when you are planning to buy a hearing amplifier, you’re spending hard-earned dollars, and my goal is to make sure you get the most value for every single one of them.
It’s also why I won’t give any hearing amplifier a rating. If you’ve looked at review sites that do, you’ll notice that everything is great. That’s nonsense. What makes a great hearing amplifier depends on what you’re looking for and what your budget is.
I work in price categories, because you can’t compare a $500 hearing amplifier with a $50 one, but if you’re looking for the best hearing amplifier for less than $200, you can find the best deal a lot faster.
I do my best to be objective, but I do have preferences. For instance, I prefer real companies over one-website fronts. I think it’s a bonus when you can call a company and get actual customer service. Some people might say it doesn’t affect the hearing amplifier itself, but I think great service can make a big difference.
If you like my approach, a great place to start from here is the page with 30-second reviews. After I write a review, I make a quick summary in one picture. That summary is found on the bottom of the review itself and on the 30-second reviews page. The reviews there are listed in order, starting with the best deals and ending with the worst.
If you know your budget, watch for the dollar signs that accompany each review. Two dollar signs ($$) indicate a price category of roughly $150-$200, three dollar signs ($$$) indicate a price category of about $200-$275, and as I add more reviews, more price categories will follow soon. You can also see all reviews in a price category by clicking the dollar signs themselves.
