Binaural Hearing Aids: 2 Are Better Than 1

The majority of an estimated 36 millions Americans with hearing loss could benefit from two hearing aids, also referred to as binaural hearing aids. Hearing health professionals and research both indicate that binaural treatment offers clear advantages, including – but not limited to - better sound quality, smoother tone, broader hearing range, and less hearing loss deterioration. 

Additionally, hearing aids in both ears improve our understanding of words in a noisy environment, and help locate the source and direction of sounds. 

However, many people who could benefit from binaural treatment are reluctant to get a hearing aid for each ear because of the high cost, not covered by Medicare and most private insurance plans.  On average, one hearing aid costs between $1000 for a basic model and $5000 for a more sophisticated one. 

Detailed calculations of the average lifespan of a hearing aid, however, indicate that on a per-day basis, the cost of a hearing aid can be as low as $3.
