Q. Why are hearing aids so expensive?

A. Many hours of costly research goes into designing efficient hearing aids. Miniaturization of stereophonic components is very expensive. Hearing aids are programmed by specific software from a computer utilizing multiple memories, channels and digital processes to improve sound quality and listening comfort.

Q. If I can get by now, can’t I wait until my hearing gets worse to get hearing aids?

A. It is best to be fit with hearing aids when a hearing loss is mild in order to give the ears and auditory nerves consistent stimulation. The auditory system works similar to other parts of our bodies in that “if you don’t use it you lose it.” Clarity of speech can become significantly compromised. If hearing should become worse, a hearing aid can frequently be reprogrammed to a stronger setting.
