We often see that everyone when dispensing Hearing Aids focuses more on the prices, as it seems attractive to clients too. But if this approach is right? Or we should be considering other more important factors, considering Hearing Aids are medical devices that can affect your health and Hearing severely if not selected properly.
There are several factors based on which the selection of Hearing aids is done for the individuals. Pricing is one of the factors but there are very important clinical factors to decide what type and technology of the Hearing Aid will be suitable to the individual. It is very important to look into these factors else the client never gets satisfied with the devices.

a) Degree of Hearing Loss

c) Slope of Audiogram
d) Frequency response in the Audiogram
e) Work environment of the client
f) Age of the client
g) Activity level of the individual
