Kirkland Signature

Costco may have made its name as a bulk-buy goods retailer, but since the company introduced its Kirkland hearing aids range in 1992, it has also become a leader in the hearing aid market.

Costco has taken its knowledge and experience of serving customers and created hearing aid centers and hearing aid products and accessory ranges that combine improved hearing with affordability.

Kirkland hearing aid reviews

Although the devices do offer a range of features and accessories that you would expect from a quality hearing aid brand, it does lack many popular features you would find in higher-end hearing aid models. Despite this, Kirkland hearing aids have become a popular brand within Costco’s hearing centers, thanks in part to the device’s price tag. Kirkland hearing aids generally have a much lower starting price compared to other hearing aids, while still offering free hearing tests at Costco hearing centers, follow-up appointments, check-ups, and hearing aid cleanings.

Kirkland Signature hearing aids

Costco Kirkland hearing aids have previously been manufactured by renowned hearing aid brands, Rexton and GN ReSound. However, the company’s latest Kirkland Signature 9.0 hearing aid range that has been developed by Sonova International, the parent company of leading hearing aid manufacturer Phonak. The devices have been built off of the Sonova Sword chip, creating a range of hearing aids that are Bluetooth compatible, so wearers can stream audio wirelessly from most Bluetooth-enabled devices directly to their ears.

The Kirkland Signature 9.0 is a reliable receiver-in-ear (RIE) hearing aid that builds on the Kirkland Signature 8.0 hearing aid technology.
