The Daily Cost

When you consider the daily cost of hearing aids, it’s actually pretty reasonable. The daily cost of two hearing aids is $1 to $7 per day, based on a 3- to 5-year lifespan. Hearing your grandkids’ stories, your partner’s jokes and your favorite melodies, for just a few bucks a day? Now that sounds pretty amazing.
