Are you waiting for hearing aid sales before you decide to change your old hearing aid or get a hearing aid for the first time? I can understand that the prices of hearing aids can sometimes be very high and it is possibly not covered under certain health insurance plans, but if you need it you really should try ways and means to get it.
Getting the right hearing aid for you, requires you to get a check up with your audiologist who can do checks on your type of hearing loss and what kind of "improvement" you need for your hearing. So it is best that you get help from your local hearing solution company to help you with choosing the right type of hearing aid for you.
Of course there are always different price range for your individual budget, so let your audiologist know your budget too.
