Why Treating Is Important

Hearing loss begins gradually, often in the 40s, and many people ignore the symptoms – hoping they’ll go away. However, research shows that the ability to make sense of what we hear deteriorates more rapidly if the hearing pathway is not stimulated.

What is the BEST hearing aid on the market?

This is one of the most frequent questions we are asked. There are several great brands, but there is no single “Best hearing aid.” The best hearing aid is the one that suits an individual’s unique lifestyle and hearing loss. A Personal Hearing Consultant and our Local Hearing Professional will be happy to educate you about various options and help select the right model.

Yes. Every day, HearingPlanet helps sons and daughters calling for parents or grandparents, or nieces and nephews calling for aunts and uncles. Our Personal Hearing Consultants are trained to work with family members in making all the necessary arrangements for a successful hearing aid experience. Some of our strongest patient testimonials are the result of family members helping each other toward better hearing and better living.

What is included in the cost of hearing aids when I purchase through HearingPlanet?

The hearing aids, batteries for the trial period, standard manufacturer repair warranty, a loss or damage warranty, 45-day trial period, all fitting fees, and at least one year of service from an Endorsed Local Clinic are included in the purchase price. There are NO hidden costs.
