Helpful Hearing Loss Websites
Hearing Loss Association of America
The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) is the nation’s leading organization representing people with hearing loss. They provide assistance and resources for people with hearing loss and their families to learn how to adjust to living with hearing loss. HLAA is working to eradicate the stigma associated with hearing loss and raise public awareness about the need for prevention, treatment, and regular hearing screenings throughout life.
Hearing Tracker was founded by an audiologist to help consumers find better hearing aids and better hearing professionals. It has a helpful directory of hearing care professionals, as well as hundreds of ratings on different hearing aid models. Hearing aids and hearing professionals are rated by real patients. This helps ensure more meaningful information for consumers and professionals.
Starkey is one of the major manufacturers of hearing aids. They have a very helpful website, with a lot of different information about hearing loss (and their products).
You can find a number of cheaper amplifier-type devices on Amazon. Be careful - the prices can vary depending on distributor.
Used Hearing Aids
You can find many used hearing aid options on Ebay. We recommend checking to make sure the seller has positive ratings (at least over 98% rating is recommended). Make sure you have a hearing care provider available to you to program and service the hearing aids, if necessary.
Snap Hearing is a local provider in the Phoenix Metro area, but they offer a number of used hearing aid options (as well as affordable new ones). For those in the Phoenix area, this might be a good option.
