What is the best hearing aid?

Choosing a hearing aid can seem overwhelming at first, particularly if you’ve never worn one before. Modern hearing aids are comfortable, discreet and vary a great deal in price, size, colour, technology level and even in the way they’re placed inside your ear.

So how do you choose the hearing aid that’s right for you? There is no such thing as the ‘best’ hearing aid on the market, even if it seems to offer the perfect hearing solution for everyone. It all comes down to what’s best for YOU and your individual hearing needs. By working closely with your Audiologist, you can assess your situation and determine the best hearing aid solution for your unique hearing loss and lifestyle.

Your hearing loss could vary on the spectrum from very mild to severe. So, you will need to choose a hearing aid suited to your level of loss. Lifestyle is another consideration – what listening environments are you regularly in, and what specifically do you want your hearing aids to be able to do? Connect to your other devices? Automatically adjust when you move between environments? And of course, there’s style to take into account, especially if you are looking for a discreet, ‘invisible’ solution.

While there is no single ‘best’ hearing aid, there are hearing aid brands and models that are proven to be more reliable than others, have higher acceptance rates and provide better outcomes in a wider range of listening situations. So, there are a lot of factors to consider that will be unique to you and will govern what you require from your hearing aid solution (for a more comprehensive list see: How to choose the best hearing aid for you.

As an independent hearing practice that is not affiliated with any hearing aid manufacturer and does not receive any financial incentives for fitting hearing aids, our qualified team of audiologists have your interests firmly in mind when making any hearing aid recommendations. We regularly review the latest hearing aid technologies from all the leading brands so we can provide you with unbiased, professional opinions on the best available solution for your individual needs.

And finally, it is important to understand that even the best hearing aid for you is just one component of a broader hearing rehabilitation treatment plan, and can only perform as well as it is programmed, fitted and fine-tuned to do. Buying the best hearing aid does not guarantee a good outcome if your case is not managed by an experienced audiologist. In fact, having the best experienced audiologist managing your case is the key success factor for achieving the best hearing rehabilitation outcomes.
