Purchasing hearing aids is a big decision—often the biggest one behind purchasing a house or car—and can significantly impact quality of life. Good hearing aids should last about five years on average so it’s important to consider many different factors before purchasing. In this article, we will cover five hearing aids currently available for purchase online.
#1: Phonak Paradise
The Phonak Paradise is considered one of the top hearing aids, and thus they are a consistent favorite among the patients that Treble Health works with. The Phonak Paradise can only be purchased online via trusted audiologists and telehealth services (including Treble Health). This allows for the hearing aids to be programmed and adjusted according to specific patient specifications and hearing profiles. When purchased via Treble Health, the Phonak Paradise comes bundled with three follow-up visits to ensure proper programming.
Partially owned by reputable hearing aid manufacturer ReSound, Lively offers reliable hearing aids for purchase online at a fair price. Lively as a company is only selling one hearing aid brand. While the company has an in-house team to assist with fitting, be aware that you may be paired with a hearing aid specialist as opposed to a licensed audiologist. If this occurs, be sure to request an experienced audiologist to ensure proper fitting and programming.
Eargo offers hearing aids for purchase, which has amplification for high frequencies. Be aware that these devices can be tinny and may need to be adjusted accordingly. Of note, the Department of Justice recently conducted an investigation of Eargo regarding insurance billing difficulties, so be sure to do your due diligence if you choose to purchase from Eargo.
Signia offers excellent hearing aids, and they are especially known for their great styles and designs. Their Stiletto hearing aid is designed as a thin piece that goes far below and behind the ear, affording it a sleek, futuristic look. Signia also offers a model called Silk, which is a non-custom piece that fits inside the ear canal. Both models are good options and can be programmed by your audiologist.
#5: Bose Sound Control
The Bose Sound Control are self-fitting hearing aids available for purchase online. A considerable drawback to Bose is that they don’t have any audiologists on staff to assist with the fitting process. Thus, it’s important to consult with an independent audiologist in order to figure out if the Bose Sound Control is the best option to treat your hearing loss.
