Find the right hearing aid for your budget

Modern hearing aids are high-tech devices that give you back the joy of hearing. Years of research and development have led to incredible advances in hearing technology. This means you can take advantage of devices that are more effective than ever before.

In most countries, there is a range of hearing aid prices based on the level of technology involved. Just like any other technological device, the more features, the higher the cost. Hearing aids should be seen as an investment that pays off by improving your life and the lives of those around you. 

In general, modern hearing aids cost between $950 to $7000* for a pair of devices. The total cost also depends on any Government subsidies or private health fund claims you may be entitled to.

How can I cut the cost of hearing aids?

In Australia, there are options available to reduce the cost of hearing aids:


Private Health Insurance

If you have private health insurance, you may be able to claim back some of the cost. Talk to your provider for further information.



If you are an eligible Australian pensioner, you are entitled to fully subsidised hearing aids, batteries and maintenance. You can also choose to make a co-payment towards the cost of a higher level of hearing aid technology. Contact the Office of Hearing Services or your local hearing provider for more information.


Worker's Compensation

Worker’s Compensation may be an option if you have workplace noise-induced hearing loss. Contact Workcover in your state for further information.


Payment Plans

Many hearing providers also offer payment plans to assist with the purchase of a hearing aid.

What contributes to the overall cost?

A high level of research and development goes into the development and manufacture of modern hearing aids. The technology is designed to replicate human hearing, which is a very intricate process. Hearing aids are also smaller, lighter and more effective than ever before. Plus, the hearing professionals that fit the hearing aids are highly trained, which also is part of the overall cost.

Why are some hearing aids more expensive than others?

There are a wide variety of styles, sizes, features and technology options in hearing aid devices. Some manufacturers develop and release new technology every two years or so, which provides ongoing access to new and improved technology features.
