Hearing Amplifiers, TV Ears, & Hearing AidsThere are several tiers of over-the-counter (OTC) hearing assist devices known as hearing amplifiers. They are NOT hearing aids, but towards the high end, they nearly approach the capabilities of one. On the low end, they cost around $50-$150. Mid-tier hearing amplifiers cost around $500. At the high end, top of the line hearing amplifiers can often cost around $2000, as much as bona fide hearing aids sold by an audiologist. These top of the line devices are categorized under "Amplifiers +" below. The Bose hearing aid and Jabra Enhance are the only bona fide hearing aids available over-the-counter that is FDA approved. Regarding TV ears, sometimes you just want to hear the TV better without annoying others by increasing the volume.
