Hearing Aids Reviews

This is a great question and the short answer is no. Reviews that you commonly see on digital electronics such as cell phones and televisions do not occur for hearing aids. However, hearings aids are often compared to one another based on the different features and technologies present in each.

Hearing loss varies drastically among individuals and thus the performance of hearing aids also varies drastically among individuals. Benefit from hearing aids depends on many factors including the type, degree and configuration of the wearer's hearing loss, as well as the way the hearing aid is fitted, programmed and fine-tuned.

In addition, most hearing aids today have some or all automatic sound processing so their settings actually change depending on the environment of the wearer. Therefore, hearing aids that work well for one person, may not work at all for another. This makes it very difficult to "review" hearing aids since the performance varies person to person and environment to environment.

So how does someone with hearing loss determine the best hearing aids? The best hearing aids are those that are chosen and fit accurately based on the individual. When your unique hearing loss, specific listening needs, hearing goals and budget are considered, that is when you find the best hearing aids for you. And this starts by working one-on-one with your hearing professional. To learn more about "best hearing aids", visit the common question titled Best Hearing Aids.
