There are only 6 major hearing aid manufacturers in the world and they have collectively set their prices very high. They then sell their products to audiologist and hearing aid dealer who, on average, mark-up these devices 120-200% over the inflated wholesale price. This is one reason why hearing aids are expensive.
Hearing aids and the more expensive hearing amplifiers use the same digital technology. Hearing amplifiers not only look the same but their internal components are the same. Just like automobile manufacturers, the Big-6 consortium of major hearing aid manufacturers assemble hearing aids – they do not make the components that go into their devices. Seven large companies who make the parts also supply the same components to hearing amplifier manufacturers. There is no difference in quality.
Hearing aids have many modern features that all come at a premium cost. Manufacturers have spent time and money making the devices much smaller.
