Walmart Hearing Aids vs Hearing Direct

In this blog post, we will compare Walmart hearing aids against our own brand of Hearing Direct hearing aids. There are a number of key categories to compare such as price and technology.

It is believed that more than 37 million American's over the age of 18 suffer from some form of hearing loss - that's 15% of the adult population in the US.  Walmart has stores all over the country as well as an online shop where you can order some of the hearing aids they offer. However, a certain Walmart hearing aids can only be bought in-store and not online.

At, we place a lot of emphasis on value for money and we supply a variety of affordable products all over the US. Our website and blog is home to a selection of fundamental items to assist the lives' of the hearing impaired and you will also find a collection of expert guides and resources.

Hearing Direct Hearing Aids

As with any digital hearing aid, you will want to find the best device that suits you. You'll also want the best advice to help you manage your hearing loss. Hearing aids are an effective way of managing a hearing impairment, especially sensorineural hearing loss - one of the most common types of impairment.

Our hearing aids have been designed with cost in mind without compromising on quality. Choose from a wide range of affordable hearing aids, including behind-the-ear, in-the-ear models, and invisible hearing aids.

The Cost of Walmart Hearing Aids

The overall cost of hearing aids can be a vital factor in the decision-making process of purchasing a new digital hearing aid.

The average price of a privately purchased hearing aid in the US is approximately $1,600., with many devices upwards of $3,000! Unlike in the UK where you can get free hearing aids from the National Health Service, in the US, this is not possible. Luckily, both ourselves and Walmart provide over the counter hearing aids well below this price. 

Walmart hearing aids start from $360 for a single device with pairs available at a cost of upward of $1,000. Whilst Walmart hearing aids start at less than a quarter of the privately purchased device, cheaper options can be found at Hearing Direct.
