What are the best hearing aids?

Question by pattypat999: What are the best hearing aids?
I have worn hearing aids for a couple of years, but have nerve been pleased with the quality. Now one has stopped working and since it is so expensive to repair it, I plan to buy one of the newer type that goes behind the ear. What can you tell me about hearing aids? I will appreciate any help as I do not want another pair that I am not pleased with. Should I get the ones that I can adjust the volume?

The hearing aid that will work best for you depends on the kind and severity of your hearing loss. If you have a hearing loss in both of your ears, two hearing aids are generally recommended because two aids provide a more natural signal to the brain. Hearing in both ears also will help you understand speech and locate where the sound is coming from.

You and your audiologist should select a hearing aid that best suits your needs and lifestyle. Price is also a key consideration because hearing aids range from hundreds to several thousand dollars. Similar to other equipment purchases, style and features affect cost. However, don’t use price alone to determine the best hearing aid for you. Just because one hearing aid is more expensive than another does not necessarily mean that it will better suit your needs.
