From traditional, analog instruments to more advanced devices, today’s hearing aids can offer benefits for your unique hearing loss needs. Aside from price, here are our top five recommendations for things to consider when purchasing hearing aids.

Fitting

Comfort should be one of your number one priorities when purchasing a hearing aid. If something does not fit the way it is supposed to, the less likely you are to use it and it is not going to serve its intended purpose. The Hearing Place will guarantee you a product that fits well, while improving your hearing.

Durability & Reliability

Hearing aids are not only an investment financially, but also an investment in your quality of life. Your active lifestyle should not be hindered because of your hearing devices. You need a product that is adaptable and reliable for when you are going about your usual habits. Whether you are skiing the Rocky Mountains in the winter, or out in the Colorado sun during the summer, you want your hearing aid to handle all kinds of situations. Financially, you want to make sure that the device is within your budget and will be durable for years to come.

Warranty & Repair

Devices often come with part warranties for both cosmetic and functional components of the hearing aid. Checking into if your specific device has either a repair or warranty program in case anything were to happen will help protect your hearing and your wallet.

Technology

Hearing aid manufacturers have heavily invested in developing new technology and features for their devices. Now, hearing aids can offer things from directional microphones, and remote controls to Bluetooth capabilities. We will help evaluate your lifestyle to see what type of hearing aid best suits your needs.

Insurance Coverage

Insurance policies can play a large part when deciding on hearing aids. The quality of your hearing ultimately impacts the quality of your life. We can work with you to see what exactly will be covered under your insurance plan and how we can help you find the right solution within your budget.
