The Pros and Cons of Buying Refurbished Hearing Aids

It’s no secret that hearing aids are expensive. On average, hearing aids cost between $1,000 and $6,000 – a lot of money, especially if you’re on a fixed income. Because of this, the question of whether it’s a good idea to buy refurbished hearing aids often enters the conversation.

If you need hearing aids to combat hearing loss but don’t have the financial means to afford new hearing aid devices, we’re here to set the record straight. At Otofonix, we want to ensure that everyone who needs hearing aids knows what kind of options they have.

In this article, we’re going to reveal the truth about used hearing aids and whether you should invest in them. As always, if you have any questions or would like to learn information about hearing loss, hearing aids, and other hearing-related topics, feel free to explore our many resources or contact our hearing specialists directly.

Can You Buy Refurbished Hearing Aids?

Absolutely! However, you need to make sure that you purchase used hearing aids from the right manufacturer. What’s more, it’s essential that you purchase the right kind. There are many different types of hearing aids, used or new.

Because of this, you could very easily end up with the wrong kind if you don’t buy from a qualified company. With that said, when you purchase used hearing aid devices from Otofonix, you can trust that we’ll give you affordable, high-quality, and tested units.

Our certified refurbished hearing aids undergo a rigorous testing process. This includes evaluation from an ENT physician and audiologist who test each used hearing aid to ensure its sound quality and output. We only sell used hearing aids that deliver rich and accurate performance specific to your hearing loss needs.

What’s more, you also get the guarantee of a lifetime of professional customer service from our award-winning support team. Purchasing used hearing aids from our Otofonix specialists ensures that you receive only the very best care for your hearing loss.

What to Consider When Buying Refurbished Hearing Aids

Depending on your needs, there are features you may want to be included in your used hearing aids. The same holds true if you’re buying brand new hearing aids. As such, you may want specific technology, such as directional microphones, or digital background noise cancellation.

It’s also essential to consider the type of used hearing aids you’re buying. Some are in-the-ear, while others are BTE (behind-the-ear). Your hearing aid fitting well is a vital factor in your investment. Let’s take a moment to explore both hearing aid types, so you can be sure that you get the best device possible.

In-the-Ear Style Not Likely to Fit Well

Because in-the-ear style hearing aids dictate that they fit according to the wearer’s ear, used versions of this hearing aid are likely to provide poor fitting in your ear. Moreover, there’s a good chance that you will have a problem with sound quality.

This is due to the previous user’s unique ear shape not matching up with yours. As such, you are probably going to be disappointed in the performance of your used hearing aid device.

Fortunately, you have another option that will enable you to hear better: the BTE hearing aid. Let’s discuss why this type makes more sense for used hearing aids.

Behind-the-Ear More Likely to Fit

BTE hearing aid models don’t have to conform to any one type of ear. Instead, the hearing technology fits in a device that goes behind your ear rather than in it, hence the name. What’s more, when you buy from us, you will receive new ear domes with your used hearing aid device, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit in each ear.

Not only will you pay less for our used digital hearing aid models, but you’ll receive a lifetime of support and professional testing from a qualified audiologist. As mentioned, we have certified audiologists and ENT physicians who check each refurbished hearing aid to ensure its quality and performance.
