Walmart Hearing Aids: Comparison and Reviews

Walmart hearing aids are a popular alternative to purchasing a hearing aid from an audiologist or in a specialist store. How do Walmart hearing aids compare against our own brand of Hearing Direct hearing aids. There are a number of key categories to compare such as price and technology. Learn more in this blog post...

Walmart Hearing Aids vs Hearing Direct

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, certain Walmart hearing aids can only be bought in-store and not online. Walmart provides a vast range of brands, of different types and models, as well as accessories and batteries. The vast selection can sometimes make the choice hard. How do you know which hearing aid will suit you best? How do you know what you need?

At HearingDirect.com, we specialise in affordability and we supply a specially selected range of affordable products all over the US. Our website is home to a selection of essential items to assist the lives' of the hearing impaired. On our blog you will also find a collection of expert guides and resources. We also have our audiologist Joan and her team on call to help you with advice on choosing the right device for your hearing.

The Cost of Walmart Hearing Aids

The overall cost of hearing aids is a vital factor in deciding on the purchase of 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! Luckily, both ourselves and Walmart provide over the counter hearing aids well below this price.

Walmart offers both hearing amplifiers and hearing aids. Their hearing aids start from $199. Walmart hearing aids do start at much less than a privately purchased device. But cheaper, smaller options with more detailed product information and help can be found at Hearing Direct.

Our own branded digital hearing aids start from $169, cheaper than the lowest price hearing aid from Walmart. While Walmart helps you save money, we have removed even more of the large costs associated with hearing aids and passed those savings directly on to you.

The HD 91 digital hearing aid is our entry level device. This in-the-ear hearing aid is almost invisible when worn due to its incredibly small size and can sit comfortably in your ear. All of our digital hearing aids can be purchased online without the need to visit an audiologist nor will you require a medical referral. Our hearing aids are ready-to-wear on arrival!

Hearing Aid Technology

Hearing aids are becoming more powerful. New technology means that hearing aids now have more features than ever before, making them a capable piece of equipment.

Walmart hearing aids, Hearing Direct hearing aids, Costco hearing aids, and other key brands manufacture digital devices that are packed with the newest tech to help improve the quality of life gained from a hearing aid.

However, higher-performance aids can have a higher price tag. Bluetooth, invisible, and iPhone-compatible hearing aids can cost much more than generic types and can burn through batteries at a very fast rate. Walmart hearing aids come in different types with varying levels of tech, just like ours!

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 our specially selected range of affordable hearing aids, including behind-the-ear, in-the-ear models, and invisible hearing aids.

Hearing Aid Batteries

Walmart also supplies hearing aid batteries. We stock a range ofhearing aid batteries that will work with a variety of hearing aids, including those available at Walmart.
We provide batteries in the most popular sizes such as size 10, 13, 312, and size 675. Choose from a selection of leading battery suppliers like Power One and Rayovac, or choose our own brand of cost-effective batteries. We offer batteries in packs of 60 so you no longer have to worry about running out of power. Our battery packs of 60 are currently cheaper than Walmart’s. We also sell rechargeable hearing aid batteries.

If you don’t like messing around with tiny batteries, then have a look at our rechargeable hearing aids which can slot into their recharging station overnight ready to go in the morning.


Hearing aids at Walmart come from a wide mix of manufacturers and brands. One of the most popular hearing aid brands they offer is Signia. They also provide hearing aid accessories from a selection of leading brands such as Phonak.

Unlike Walmart hearing aids, we produce our own make of digital hearing aids that are manufactured by us. We also have our own brand of long-life hearing aid batteries keeping your device performing at its best.
