What’s the difference between hearing aids bought from a doctor as opposed to those bought at about half price?

Question by OnTheCoast: What’s the difference between hearing aids bought from a doctor as opposed to those bought at about half price?
From an audiologist, I’m told that a prescription hearing aid can run about $ 2500. I see ads for hearing aids that are programmed based on hearing test results that go for around $ 1000. Is there much difference in quality?

Generally, hearing aids from a doctor are of better quality than those who aren’t. The audiologist knows you better than these other people do, and know what is right for you, and what isn’t.

I have my hearing aids from my audiologist, and I have never had any problems with it personally. Even though it’s pricier, it’s worth it. I don’t trust these adverts. Anyway, good luck, and ask your audiologist for more information.
