Best Value, Low Cost Rechargeable Hearing Aids 2020

This article explores the best value rechargeable hearing aids. The hearing aids listed are all new technology, entry level.

When a manufacturer releases a new hearing aid, it often comes with a new processing chip, new operating system, increased memory and improved microphones and receivers.

The faster chip allows for more calculations a second; increased memory improves processing speed; improved microphones and receivers improve sound quality and the new operating system combines all the new components and latest hearing research into delivering the clearest sound signal the manufacturer can create.

With each release of a new hearing aid, the manufacturer releases three to five models. These models may be advertised as Bronze, Silver, Gold or you may see descriptions such as Essential, Standard, Advanced and Premium.

All these different models usually have the same new chip, components and operating system. The entry level models will simply not have all the features for hearing clearer in complex noisy environments activated (e.g. high-level noise reduction). Therefore, the model you choose will depend on your listening needs.

Today we will be highlighting the best value rechargeable hearing aids we can find in the Bronze/Essential category. These hearing aids are suitable for users who have a quiet lifestyle and are looking for good value. If you mainly live at home or you are in a residential care setting and rarely find yourself in noisy environments, then new technology entry level hearing aids should be sufficient. The sound quality they produce in quiet environments will be the same or very nearly the same as top of the range hearing aids.

Often, users whose lifestyles mean they only require entry level technology, would also benefit from rechargeable hearing aids. As these users tend to be older and may have lost some sensitivity and dexterity in their hands, and their eyesight may also have deteriorated, traditional hearing aids can be quite fiddly in terms of switching them off and changing the battery every week.   With rechargeable hearing aids, simply placing them in the charger turns them off and when you take them out of the charger, they turn straight back on. Rechargeable batteries also save a lot of battery waste.

New technology entry level hearing aids now come with Bluetooth included and will therefore connect to phones and accessories such as TV streamers.

Phonak Marvel Chariging in Charger

 

Though Phonak Marvel 2.0 has recently been superseded by Phonak Paradise, Marvel technology is still only a year old and we believe the M30 R offers great value for money.

The main reason we have chosen Marvel in our best value category is for its Bluetooth capabilities. Phonak Marvel is able to connect to any Bluetooth device. This means nearly all phones, tablets and PC’s. Marvel also allows for true hands-free use of a mobile:  keep your phone in your pocket and answer your phone call by pressing a button on the hearing aid.

Phonak Marvel TV streamer can also be set to connect automictically when the TV turns on.
