What is the best hearing aid in 2022?

The best hearing aid for you is unique to your personal hearing needs and preferences. In addition to receiving your hearing test results, getting familiar with your personal needs and preferences will help you choose the best hearing aid. In finding a hearing aid that benefits your personal needs, you might consider looking for a hearing aid that:

1. Significantly improved hearing ability

The continuous development of hearing aid technology is the central focus for hearing aid manufacturers. The primary goal is to provide hearing aid users with a hearing experience that is as close as possible to normal hearing.

Look for the following qualities in a hearing aid as you search for the best hearing aid for you: 

  • Delivers clear speech, even in crowded, noisy situations
  • Provides access to the full sound scene'
  • Helps you select what sounds to focus on
  • Enables you to hear all the sounds around you (360-degree sound experience)
  • Helps to minimize mental strain

If you're looking for a hearing aid that delivers the best possible hearing experience, then look out for a hearing aid that provides the qualities above.

2. The most comfortable hearing aid

Modern hearing aids are more comfortable than ever, and most hearing aids offered at HearingLife clinics have a comfortable style. Since hearing aids are smaller than ever before, even behind-the-ear hearing aids can be difficult to spot. 

Some hearing aid models are so small that they are virtually invisible. The smallest models available are placed inside the ear canal, making them virtually invisible to people around you.

3. The best value for money

Price is a significant factor when choosing a hearing aid. It's important to find a solution you are comfortable with, while also ensuring that you are getting the best quality possible. 

Compare hearing aid prices

In order to determine what hearing aid provides the best value for your money, we recommend that you book a free hearing test. During the test, a hearing care professional will test your hearing and ask you questions about your lifestyle, your preferences and your listening situations in a typical day. 

Based on the results, you will select a hearing aid that suits both your hearing needs and your budget.

4. The most comfortable fit 

Having a comfortable hearing aid will help to ensure that you get the most wear out of your devices. Over time, your hearing aids become a natural part of your everyday routine, so finding a comfortable solution will ensure that you reap all the benefits that your hearing aid can offer. 

Here are a couple areas to consider when finding a hearing aid that is most comfortable for you:

  1. The shape of your ear canal can influence which hearing aid will be most comfortable for you (i.e. in-the-ear hearing aids vs. behind-the-ear hearing aids) 
  2. Digital hearing aids offer optimal comfort since they work to support your brain's natural way of processing sound, while hearing amplifiers merely make the sounds around you louder. For this reason, HearingLife only offers digital hearing aids.

Schedule a free appointment in one of our clinics, where you will have the opportunity to see and try different hearing aids. This will give you the opportunity to find a model which is most comfortable for you.
