How To Choose A Hearing Aid: Major Factors to Consider

Shopping for the right hearing aids can be tricky. Knowing how to choose a hearing aid can be considered as a subtle art. Once you know for sure that you could benefit from having aids fitted, it’s time to start looking for the best fit. That doesn’t just mean finding the most comfortable shape. It also means finding a system that will offer the most benefits to your everyday life.

Where are you likely to use your hearing aids the most? Do you need them for work, or do you need them for socializing? Let's take a look at some of the most critical factors you should bear in mind – here's how to choose the right hearing aid for your needs.

Consider Your Budget

The price of hearing aids in the industry has skyrocketed over the past few years! Here at Nano hearing Aids, we’re proud to be able to offer incredible hearing aid technology at much lower prices. Therefore, we set ourselves up as professional alternatives for people struggling to put enough money aside.

You should always look for hearing aids within your price range. Our hearing aids start retailing at $297, which is as little as 10% of what you’d expect to pay elsewhere. Our most advanced aids retail for $597 – which, again, means you are saving a lot of money.

Think About Ease of Use

You should never sacrifice ease of use for the sake of money saved. We supply user-friendly, technologically superior hearing aids at low prices. However, look for ‘cheap’ hearing aids elsewhere, and you might not find the best models available.

Think about the features you want from your hearing aids. Do you need noise cancellation and reduction? Do you prefer rechargeable batteries to replaceable ones? Do you need extra amplification with the help of directional microphones? Ask one of our experts, or an audiologist, for help with picking the best features and functions for your needs.

Think About Discretion

Hearing aids are designed these days to be less easy to spot than traditional models as the older analog hearing aids are fairly easy to see. We understand why some people may feel embarrassed about wearing a hearing aid, so that's why we've made our Nano Model X2 ranges virtually invisible to the naked eye once they are comfortably fitted.

Look for hearing aids which offer plenty of discretion, or invisible fitting – if it is important to you!

Warranties are Important

You’re going to need to pick hearing aids which are protected against damage and loss. The best hearing aids available will have extensive warranty plans, and money back guarantees available. That means if you don’t get what you wanted from your hearing aids, you should be able to return them for a refund.

Nano Hearing Aid warranty options are extensive. What’s more, we offer a standard 45-day money back guarantee if you change your mind. So when the rightful confusion of how to choose a hearing aid comes to mind, you will know that you will be backed up with a warranty, which too should add to the many deciding factors.

Q: Can I get a hearing aid without a doctor's prescription?
No, you can't get a prescription hearing aid without a doctor's prescription, however, according to FDA, a new type of OTC hearing aid can be availed without a doctor's note which is good for adults who feel they have mild to moderate hearing loss.
