How long does a hearing aid usually last?

Question by troymariner: How long does a hearing aid usually last?
Seems like my hearing aids never last more than 5 or 6 years (I have the digital type). The first one cost me $ 1,600. Five years later the second one cost me $ 2,000. Now I’m about to get my third one and it will cost me $ 2,700. I would appreciate comments from anyone about how long their DIGITAL hearing aid has lasted them. Also appreciate comments about which brand they think is the best.

    I got my digital hearing aid about 4 years ago and its still working (paid $ 1,200.00 for mine). However, I heard of the behind the ear aid works better at diminishing background sounds. My digital works but picks up everything but the person I am talking to! The behind-the-ear is more durable because you don’t get wax build-up in the ear mold. Check out the websites for the best one if this is the type you think that you would like.

    I don’t know but my dads seemed to start going out everytime his kids needed money but worked wonderfully when mom whispered sweet nothings in his ear.
