Cost of Hearing Aids in Washington DC

The cost of hearing aids in Washington, DC can range from $1,000 to $3,500. Customers can expect to pay $90 per month for basic options, $140 per month for advanced technology, $150 per month for premium technology and $180 per month for ultimate-level technology.

New hearing aid technology—like TV streaming and hands-free calls, smartphone connectivity and rechargeable batteries—increase the cost of hearing aids. Hearing aid size matters: smaller devices (which fit almost invisibly in the ear for a discreet look) tend to be more expensive. Directional microphones, motion sensors, fall detection and alerts, are all useful features that require more processing power, which adds to the price of hearing aids.
