Miracle-Ear Hearing Aids

Miracle-Ear Costs & Pricing

Miracle-Ear hearing aids cost anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000. Hearing aids are not cheap with the average cost falling somewhere in this range as well. Miracle-Ear does not have any prices listed, like the vast majority of its competitors. They do offer a risk-free 30-day trial period for all their hearing devices as well as a warranty, full service, and after care for the lifetime of the device. Most health insurance companies understand that hearing is vital to overall health and provide hearing care benefits to their members. These benefits may cover as much as 100 percent of the cost for hearing aids and services or some percentage of the total cost. In addition, your employer benefit packages may also include a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) that allows you to save a portion of your income before taxes are accessed every year for use to offset healthcare costs such as hearing aids. Miracle-Ear retail outlets accept most major insurance plans. Calling the location nearest to you is the easiest way to verify if you are covered and get answers to any other questions you might have. For example, if you do not have insurance Miracle-Ear offers many other solutions to help you get the hearing services you need. Many locations have financing options available. Also, several Miracle-Ear professionals accept credit options such as Wells Fargo Health Advantage or Care Credit – credit companies that specialize in healthcare financing. If all else fails, the Miracle-Ear Foundation is available to help Americans who do not have the resources to obtain hearing aids.

Features

The newest Miracle-Ear devices come with their innovative GENIUS 3.0 technology. This tech builds on all the features that were previously offered and adds a few new ones to keep Miracle-Ear devices on the cutting edge of hearing aid technology. Not all devices have all features and it is necessary to consult a Miracle-Ear hearing specialist to determine which model will best suit your unique hearing needs.
  • Wireless Windscreen: This handy feature does more than simply block out wind noise, it actually replaces it with something you want to hear, like your companion’s voice. Moreover, this feature helps to maintain spatial perception so that the wearer can tell from where sounds are originating.
  • Directional Microphones: These adaptive directional microphones locate the strongest source of noise and automatically adjust its settings to reduce that noise while simultaneously giving you the ability to focus your device on the sound or speaker you want to hear.
  • Tinnitus Control: Miracle-Ear devices offer two options for tinnitus treatment: Sound Therapy and Notch Therapy. The first masks the ringing of tinnitus with soothing audio while the second trains the brain to ignore the ringing.
  • Rechargeable: This feature allows you to forego the cost and hassle of changing the batteries in your hearing aids. A built-in power cell with portable charger makes hearing devices completely battery free.
  • Voice Recognition: This patented technology allows the wearer to process their own voice separately to eliminate that “tin can” effect and make hearing as natural as possible.
  • Speech Isolation: By detecting and amplifying the dominant speaker over all other sounds, this feature allows better clarity with speech.
  • iPhone Connectivity: This feature allows wearers to wirelessly stream from their iPhone directly to their hearing aids allowing for clearer media and phone calls.

About Miracle-Ear

According to the Center for Hearing and Communication (CHC), there are more than 48 million Americans with some degree of hearing loss. In 1948, the company that became Miracle-Ear – Dahlberg Inc – was founded to help those people regain their ability to hear and be a part of the world around them. At that time, Miracle-Ear was the name of their hearing aid and they were a small family company. Today, Miracle-Ear is a subsidiary of Amplifon – an Italian hearing aid company with worldwide distribution – and have headquarters in their two markets Canada and the United States. In fact, Miracle-Ear has more than 1200 retail outlet locations within the United States and a rapidly growing number in Canada as well. These Miracle-Ear retail outlets are a network of corporately-owned and franchised locations that offer free hearing test and consultations. They operate in conjunction with the Miracle-Ear headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Over the years, Miracle-Ear has added its own innovations and technological advances to the hearing aid industry. In 1955, they introduced the first in the ear (ITE) device. However, the device was actually worn over the ear rather than in the canal as with today’s ITE hearing aids. In 1990, they founded the Miracle-Ear Children’s Foundation to provide free hearing services and devices to children whose families could not otherwise afford them. In 2013, this charitable organization evolved to include people of all ages when it became the Miracle-Ear Foundation. Today Miracle-Ear offers a full range of hearing devices. Each has a collection of features designed to suit specific hearing needs and there is sure to be a device that meets the needs of everyone.
