We love Eargo hearing aids for their incredibly small size and impressive audio quality, not to mention their in-depth smartphone compatibility. With newer models, Eargo includes free remote visits with the company’s hearing health team, so you can ensure your devices are tuned to your particular type of hearing loss.
Eargo hearing aids typically cost between $1,450 and $2,950 for a pair, but on Black Friday you can expect some steep discounts. In past years, Eargo has discounted its hearing aids by as much as 50 percent. Eargo hearing aids also are now available in some Verizon stores.

When looking for hearing aids on Black Friday, you may be tempted to jump at the cheapest pair you can find. It’s important, however, to remember that not all hearing aids are created equal.
The best hearing aids will feature adjustable sound environments, smartphone compatibility, and ample customer support, most often in the form of telehealth visits with hearing specialists.
Unlike traditional hearing aids, OTC hearing aids don’t necessarily have audiologist support, so we recommend choosing a brand that offers this service.
