Why do hearing aids cost so much?
Much of the sticker price of a hearing aid—and the reason costs can be so high—comes from the way hearing aids are sold.
Hearing aid retail shops must cover costs that come from running a “brick-and-mortar” storefront, including rent, equipment, and staff salaries. In addition, they typically serve only a select local customer base so these exceptionally high fixed costs must be spread over very few customer orders.
With online retailers like Embrace Hearing, buyers get access to the same quality audiologist programmed hearing aid technology.
How does Embrace Hearing keep costs down?
- Buying directly from the German manufacturer
- Selling exclusively online, thus enabling high volume through an international customer base
- Hiring a highly experienced audiology team to ensure the right fit every time
- Eliminating the costs of retail storefronts and retail staff.
For many, shopping online cuts down on the cost of hearing aids in terms of both time and money, while ensuring the same level of quality and experienced 24/7 service and professional reliability you would find at your local hearing aid retailer.
