Resound Hearing Aids

For your reference a GN ReSound Price Comparison chart is provided. Note that these prices represent the cost of the hearing aid per ear. If you are purchasing the Hearing Aidsa for both the ears you price will double. The price includes the aftercare service provided by the manufacturer and the store owneers, the replacement of the device in case of any accidental damage, the warraty and the price of any batteeeries included with the device. Inclusion of any other services will add up to the price.

The GN ReSound Price Comparison chart provided below is only for your reference. The actual price offered by the stores might be different. You may get a better deal if there are any promotions running currently, or any other offers published by the store owners or the manufacturers.

The GN ReSound Price Comparison, in the ascending order of the prices, is as follows:

The Essence model costs you around 500
The Alera 560 (Non-Wireless) model costs you 800
The Sparx model costs you 900
The Alera 561 (Wireless) model too costs you 900
The Live 5 model too costs you 900
The Be 7 model costs 1100
The Alera 760 (Non-Wireless) too costs you 1100
The Live 7 model costs you 1200

the Alera 960 (Non-Wireless) model costs you 1400
The Live 9 model costs you 1500
The Alera 961 (Wireless) model too costs you 1500

As the models Azure, Ziga, Xplore, Plus5, Dot2 are obsolete, this chart does not cover the cost of these models. As these models are obsolete, you may get a good price, if you go for them. However, the service offered by the manufacturers for these models, and any of the accessories that will be supplied will be very much limited. you need to make a decision regarding this.

The above chart covers the prics only for the hearing aid per year. Your price might go up if you are going for two hearing aids. The inclusion of any of the accessories like Unite TV Streamer, Unite Phone Clip, Unite Remote control will add up to your prices. Check whether your model supports these accessories or not before your purchase.

The price of any additional maintenance kits that you might opt for these devices will add up to the price provided in the above chart. Various devices like soft cleaning brushes, drying kits, cushioned compartments for storing the hearing aids are available in the market.

The models usually come with battery kit, lasting for few days. You may consider purchasing the batteries in addition to the device. Purchasing the batteries in bulk might reduce the over price of the batteries. However, you need to consider the storage of these batteries in a safe place.

Usually purchasing them online might get you much better deal than the prices provided in the GN ReSound Price Comparison above. But the online purchases may not cover the various services offered by the store owners. You should consider this fact before you decide about from where you are going to purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Is there a good website to get ratings for the different brands of very expensive hearing aids?
    At between 1300 and 4500 dollars for hearing aids I can find no place where the various brands are compared. Consumer reports has not done a comparison
    for mlgable
    I am aware of what you are saying about different types of hearing loss. But there are many different brands with a great variety of pricing. As with any product I am sure that some brands are a much better value than others. This is not for me but an elderly parent.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes there are different brands. However each brand usually also has a 00 model, 00 model, 00 model etc. With hearing aids there really isn’t much difference among brands. Each audiologist is going to have their “favorite” manufacturer based on how much experience they have with their products. It is always best to go with something the audiologist is familiar with because they have more knowledge of what works and what doesn’t work with those products. My advice is to see an audiologist not a hearing instrument specialist. Audiologists have at least a master’s if not a doctorate degree. Audiologists use hearing aids from major manufacturers. My favorites are Widex, Phonak, Resound, and Starkey. Other major manufacturers are Oticon, Siemens, Unitron, and Rexton. Stay away from places that use their own brands and not a major manufacturer listed above.

  2. QUESTION:
    I would like to get my dad to a hearing aid professional but I’m not sure how to start..?
    My dad is hard of hearing and it drives everyone crazy having to repeat your question 3 times. Every conversation is a real test of patience. He had some hearing aids that were very small that he really didn’t like, they were very expensive and he eventially lost them. I need to know what are the best hearing devices for the money and since I’m in east Tennessee I will have to get his hearing tested here. Please help.

    • ANSWER:
      You should make an appointment with an audiologist. They hold a doctorate in audiology, while dispensers in most states simply have to be 18 and pass a test. Most dispensers are like car salesmen and will try anything to get you to buy the aids. There are implantable hearing aids, but that technology is new and there are still a lot of kinks to work out. This includes a need to have surgery again when it is time to replace the hearing aid batteries.

      With hearing aids, it is critical that the patient want to hear for himself, not for others. Hearing aids are not like glasses, as they don’t automatically fix the problem. The more they are worn, the more the brain adjusts to hearing sounds again. With digital technology advancing rapidly, patients are seeing much better results. The more expensive the hearing aid, the more it helps with speech understanding, especially in background noise (like a restaurant), and also the more features it has (like wind block, or wireless capabilities). Every brand will have low-end and high-end products. Some of the best and most popular are Phonak, Oticon, Starkey, Siemens, and ReSound. An audiologist will be able to determine the hearing loss, listening needs, medical problems that may need to be addressed, and will give you only what you need, putting the patient first. Also, look for colleges in your area and see if they have audiology programs. These programs will have clinics in which audiology students get experience seeing patients. These are graduate-level students who would work with you. As they are not doctors yet, they are supervised by audiologists, and often prices are lower since you are working with students.

      Hearing aids can drastically improve a patient’s quality of life (and the quality of life of others around him). Let me know if you have any other questions!

  3. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have a Lee Majors Bionic Hearing Aid? What results have you had?
    I understand it is rechargeable; what is the lifetime of the hearing aid? Is it only 2 years or is there a battery that can be changed at that time? How good of a reception do you get?

    • ANSWER:
      A recent study by Michigan State University researchers (see link below) found hearing aids under 0 are of poor quality and can actually be dangerous for persons with hearing loss to wear.

      This hearing aid appears to fall into that price range so you may want to purchase with caution.

      If you are interested in other rechargeable hearing aids there are others on the market that will last longer and provide better quality. One is the Motion behind-the-ear hearing aids by Siemens. ReSound also manufactured a rechargeable hearing aid.

      The best recommendation is to see a hearing care professional to determine your hearing loss and what hearing aid would be best for you and your hearing loss.

  4. QUESTION:
    What kind Hearing Aid brand are the best?
    I have this hearing aid for 10 years and it time for me to buy new hearing aid and I want to know which one is the best.

    • ANSWER:
      Most major brands (Phonak, Widex, Oticon, GN Resound) offer hearing aids that can all do the same things. The best hearing aid is the one that sounds good to you and that your audiologist is comfortable fitting.

      One thing to realize is there have been HUGE changes in hearing aid technology over the last ten years. Hearing aids are almost 100% digital and have much clearer sound. However, the new hearing aids do not “sound” as loud as the old hearing aids.

      There are many new features designed to help you hear better on the phone, in noisy environments, or in large auditoriums. There are also ways to connect your hearing aids to your cell phone or to change the settings using a remote control! Be sure you see an audiologist who will take the time to review all of your options and explain the different technologies and brands with you.

  5. QUESTION:
    How much does a hearing aid cost?
    On average, about how much does a hearing aid cost? I am having a LOT of trouble hearing things, like the clicking my fingers make on the keyboard, and I was wondering, just in case.

    What is the Cheapest also?

    • ANSWER:
      Hearing aids typically range from around 00 an ear to over 00 an ear. Price will affect sound quality, ability to filter background noise, and overall performance, so it is not something you want to buy based by price, especially since the lifespan is 5-7 years (and that’s along time to be regretting a purchase). Be sure to see an AUDIOLOGIST not a hearing aid dealer for a thorough test and honest recommendation. State laws usually require a 30-day trial period (return fees may apply). Check with your health insurance as although they usually do not cover hearing aids they may offer a discount program through participating providers. Interest-free financing is also usually offered. Stick with major brands like Widex, Phonak, Oticon, and ReSound.
