There is no about it, hearing aids are expensive. However, for most people hearing aids a life changing, enabling people to enjoy life to the fullest. There are a number of reasons why hearing aids are expensive:
1/ Medical devices – hearing aids are medical devices managed by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration). This means they they are manufactured (and distributed) to extremely high standards.
2/ Research & Development -Major brands spend hundreds of millions of dollars annually to improve the performance and introduce new features in hearing aids. All this development is done while keeping the hearing aids as small as possible.
3/ Customisation – Hearing aids have a high level of customisation for the individual wearer. No two hearing aids are programmed the same. They are programmed for each person’s individual hearing loss and hearing needs.
