Why do hearing devices cost so much?
Manufacturers of hearing devices are constantly researching and improving device technology – an expensive enterprise. Digital hearing devices are sold in relatively low volume as compared to other digital devices such as telephones and stereos. The skill, expertise and experience of the audiologist enter into the equation as well. Audiologists are prepared at the doctoral level for entry into practice assuring the best and latest information is brought to bear on individual hearing evaluations and device fittings.
Although there are less expensive alternatives such as discount centers and mail away programs, the person in charge of fitting in those situations may not have the level of training to assure an optimal outcome.
