Best Affordable Hearing Aids of 2023, According To Audiologists | Forbes Health

A mere 20% of older U.S. adults who might benefit from hearing loss treatment actually seek help, according to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association[1]. Hearing aids specifically can be a life-changing treatment for someone with hearing loss, though many people don’t pursue them for fear of how much the devices will cost. Fortunately, there are more affordable hearing aid models available now than ever before thanks to the emergence of the over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aid market in 2022.

To determine the best affordable hearing aids, the Forbes Health editorial team first consulted several audiologists from the Forbes Health Advisory Board for product recommendations based on their expertise. Star ratings were then solely determined by the editorial team, prioritizing starting prices to address affordability, followed by average user ratings and product features that are typically important to hearing aid users. Read on to find out which hearing aids made our list.
