Costco is the low-cost hearing aid provider that’s rated highest on the hearing aid forums (and probably everywhere else, too).
Costco offers the same brands and models you can find at an audiologist’s office for about half the price (with the exception of the Kirkland, which is the Costco brand).
Tip: Audicus is currently running a special where if you buy two you get the controller for free.
Use the code ‘remote’ at checkout if you buy 2 a Notes.
(Also see Erica Manfred’s article, “The Latest in Hearing Aids and Hearables”) I wish I’d known about the Hearing Aid Forums before I bought hearing aids.
I got my hearing aids from the audiology department at a local university.With Audicus you get a hearing test, send in the results by fax or email, and the company programs your hearing aids. This is a hassle, but if you’re saving thousands of dollars it’s well worth it.Here is a post on the forums about the a Blue hearing aids from Audicus.They weren’t astronomically expensive, but 00 for two seemed pretty astronomical to me.The audiologist handed them to me and that was that.Audicus hearing aids range from 9 to 9 each and are extensively advertised online.
