How to Spend Less on Hearing Aids Hearing aids are an investment that a good friend of mine felt was unnecessary. When he first suffered hearing loss, he didn’t want to deal with the condition. So instead, he turned to one of those devices marketed strictly for amplification to save money and, he thought, dignity. At first he noticed the little things. Suddenly the television is almost impossible to hear, the volume goes up more each day. Clearly, there must be something wrong with the TV, he told himself. Next thing he knows, his best friend started mumbling all the time. In fact, everyone was mumbling. Even when he reached the point where he figured out that his hearing was the culprit, looking for a cheap solution is just another way of avoiding reality. Understanding your condition and the extent of your hearing loss is a vital part coping with the problem. He thought he could save money on a hearing test and exam by buying cheap.

Turns out, there are imitation systems out there that are nothing but generic, one-size-fits all speakers. Purchasing a less quality device meant he could avoid ‘officially’ buying a hearing aid. When he got the piece that promised to amplify sound, he said it was uncomfortable to wear. The rubbing was irritating his skin and the tight fit made his jaw hurt. He stayed persistent, however and went right back on the Internet and found another one. This time the device fit better because it came with different sized covers, but he was replacing the battery after only a few hours. It didn’t save him money because he was buying new batteries in bulk. Eventually he gave in and accepted his hearing loss. It was going to cost a little bit to go to an audiologist, but it would allow me to buy hearing aids from places such as Audibel that work well and fit right. Eventually, even the most stubborn person realizes that you get what you pay for in this world. If you buy a beat up car from a junk yard, you will always be repairing it. Putting out a little more upfront for a newer model saves you money in the end.
