Ask a Question

Should I purchase a hearing aid based on consumer reviews?

The short answer to this question is no.

When it comes to hearing aids, no two individuals are exactly the same. While hearing aid reviews may provide valuable insights into hardware durability and performance, readers are cautioned to consider the individual variables that impact one's experience with hearing aids:

  • Lifestyle
  • Hearing needs and goals
  • Hearing loss type and severity
  • Physical fitting factors
  • Technology readiness
  • Device handling ability

Choosing a hearing aid based solely on hearing aid reviews would be misguided and would likely lead to a very poor outcome. For best results, consult a qualified hearing aid provider in your area and be sure that they assess all of the factors listed above. If you're interested in a specific hearing aid model, let your hearing aid provider know, but be prepared to discuss alternative options!

About Hearing Aid Reviews

What is a hearing aid provider?

On Hearing Tracker, we define a hearing aid provider as any hearing professional who is involved in hearing rehabilitation. This may involve the fitting conventional hearing aids, but may also involve the tuning cochlear implants, bone-anchored hearing aids, or other hearing devices/prosthetics. A hearing professional may be a state-licensed hearing aid dispenser, an audiologist, or any number of qualifying professions.
