Picking a hearing aid is getting harder.
When I started this website in 2018, there were a handful of brands that offered hearing amplifiers. Some were good alternatives to prescription hearing aids, some weren’t.
Since the FDA approved over the counter hearing aids in 2022, the market was flooded with a lot more options. You can now buy hearing aids at Walmart (kind of), along with your tomatoes.
This means you can now choose between a $4,000 hearing aid from a specialist, or an OTC hearing aid that can range anywhere from $20 to $2,000. I probably don’t have to tell you that the $20 hearing aid will disappoint you, but how do you get value for money without overpaying? What is the best OTC hearing aid for your needs?
That’s why I started this website. I’ve been researching hearing aids since before I started this website, and I’m always looking to get you the most value for money (or at least understanding why something costs what it does).
Now, full disclosure, I don’t personally use hearing aids. I do hearing aid tests, to make sure nobody is trying to pull a fast one.
Instead, I simply pretend I’m helping my grandmother pick a hearing aid based on my experience. I’ve ordered them, I’ve asked questions, and over five years of research has helped me understand which hearing aids are worth it.
I do my best to help you, but maybe you’d like some more personal help. Sign up for my email list, and simply reply to the welcome email, and I’ll help you from there. You won’t be the first – I’ve helped hundreds of people find their perfect hearing aid. Let me find yours next.
Have a great day,
