Dear Hearing Aid Consumer
If you have attempted to research hearing aids yourself, you probably found that it is a daunting, time-consuming task. There are so many hearing aid models available today and sorting through manufacturer’s marketing and technical information is a challenge to say the least. The average person simply doesn't have the time, resources or expertise to properly evaluate all of the hearing aid offerings on the market.
Consequently, many consumers resort to relying solely on an audiologist to recommend their hearing aids, and this can be risky. As in all professions, the skill and knowledge of audiologists can vary widely. Some are more technically savvy than others and, given how sophisticated today’s digital hearing aids are, this can be an issue when trying to discern features and performance. Also, for various reasons some audiologists limit the number of hearing aid manufacturers and models they will support which can also lead to sub-optimal hearing aid recommendations. At a minimum, you need to be armed with the right information BEFORE working with an audiologist.

About Our Hearing Aid Reviews
Expert Analysis. Today’s hearing aids are very sophisticated. They contain a vast array of claimed features and in order to properly evaluate the effectiveness of these features, you need a multidisciplinary team like ours. Our report includes contributions from experts in the fields of audiology, electrical engineering, speech/hearing technology, and healthcare.
Current Information. Hearing aid technology is advancing rapidly. Within the last year or so, we’ve seen major improvements in the areas of sound quality, fitting options, size reduction, wireless compatibility (Bluetooth) and moisture resistance. As such, our report is updated on a quarterly basis, so you can rest assured that you are receiving up to date hearing aid reviews.
Unbiased Reviews. We do not accept paid advertising, free samples, or any other perks from hearing aid manufacturers. Therefore, in order to support our ongoing research, we charge a nominal fee for our report. We hope you agree that this is a small price to pay for our valuable report, especially given that today’s hearing aids can cost upwards of $6000 a pair!
What Did We Find?
As you’ll read in our report, we found that not all ‘premium’ level hearing aids are created equal when it comes to performance and feature sets. In fact, there are a small handful of hearing aids in our roundup that we think are clearly head and shoulders above the rest. These are the hearing aids you want!
On a related note, we should point out that in our report we indicate the available styles, features, and fitting range guidelines for each hearing aid. This is important because, while we provide our top choices, you still need to consider whether a particular hearing aid is appropriate for your hearing loss severity and type, as well as whether the hearing aid meets your personal preferences such as having on-aid controls for volume and program selection, cosmetic appeal, etc. Fortunately, our top picks include a variety of styles, features, and fitting ranges so we think you’ll find something to your liking among them.
