Buying a refurbished hearing aid has several advantages:
- It’s much cheaper than a new hearing aid
A refurbished hearing aid is as good as new, but has a much lower price than a new hearing aid. This benefit can be as much as 50%. So you benefit from the advantages of a new hearing aid, but for a low price!
- It’s better for the environment
Buying a refurbished hearing aid is an environmentally conscious choice. You buy a hearing aid that already exists, so that no new hearing aid has to be made. This has a positive effect on CO2 emissions and water use.
Did you know that no less than 30 to 60 m3 of water is used in the production of a set of hearing aids (two hearing aids)? Most of the water is used during the production phase. In addition, it costs between 7 and 17 kg of CO2 emissions. This too is largely created in the production phase of the hearing aid.
By buying a refurbished hearing aid, the environment does not have to suffer this damage again.
- You know for sure that you are buying quality
An alternative to buying a refurbished hearing aid is to buy a second-hand hearing aid on, for example, Marktplaats. We do not recommend that. A hearing aid is a semi-finished product. To prevent possible hearing damage with a second-hand hearing aid, we always recommend that you buy a refurbished hearing aid from a hearing care professional.
