Digital Hearing Aid Accessories

What are digital hearing aid accessories?

Most hearing aids come with a choice of accessories that can be purchased at the time or after the hearing aids have been worn for some time. These include wireless transmitters that enable the sound from a television or telephone or other devices to “beam” sound into the hearing aid.

The need for certain assistance by way of accessories can sometimes heavily influence the choice of make or model of hearing aid required.  There are some useful ones, and you should discuss accessories with your hearing aid dispenser as you may be missing out.  So, what hearing aid accessories are on the market? Let's take a look...

Cost of hearing aid accessories

We don't list the prices of accessories as they can vary quite a lot. Sometimes the manufacturers may include an accessory in with the cost of the aid, other times they will bundle several together so that for example a TV streamer and remote control will be less if purchased together than if bought individually. As a general guide, TV streamer boxes, wireless mic's, etc are between £100 and £250. Remote controls are between £40 and £120.

Hearing aid accessories NHS

Does the NHS provide digital hearing aid accessories with their hearing aids?  The short answer is no.  Whilst the NHS provides a credible hearing health service and some good hearing solutions - they are currently unable to offer Bluetooth hearing aids. Hearing aids with Bluetooth capability are only available with private hearing care.  Hearing aid accessories require Bluetooth technology and connectivity to work and stream audio.
