Hearing aids generally cost $1200-$3500 per aid, however this price can vary based on the needs and wants of the client. Hearing aids come in many shapes, sizes, colors, and with different levels of technology. From basic to premium, the goal of every good hearing health professional is to fit the hearing aid to the hearing loss, lifestyle and budget of the client.
Stanford Hearing has payment plans to improve the affordability of hearing aids and we have access to government programs such as AADL, WCB, DVA and NIHB available that can further reduce the cost.

Binaural hearing also helps with the ability to make sense of speech in noisy situations by helping you to disregard the background noise and focus on speech and understanding. Statistics prove that understanding with two hearing aids is substantially better than with one hearing aid – just like our eyes, our ears are meant to work in a pair. If your hearing loss only exists in one ear, we will only recommend one hearing aid, but it is rare to experience an asymmetrical hearing loss.
