Costco may have become a well-known name in the global world of retail, and is most commonly associated with bulk-buy foods, but the retailer has also become a leading name in the hearing aid market.

Over the past few years, the company has become one of the largest sellers of hearing aids in the US since it introduced its own brand Kirkland range in 1992.

While the devices may not offer all of the higher-end options and features available with many other premium hearing aid brands, one of the most significant features of Costco’s range of Kirkland hearing aids is the price. Most hearing aids cost around $2,000 per device. However, Kirkland hearing aids are more affordable, starting from around $1,499 for a pair and come with a free hearing test at Costco, hearing aid cleanings, and follow-up appointments.

Kirkland hearing aid reviews

The Kirkland label has long been the value brand for many Costco products, both inside and outside the hearing aid department and it has grown to become a prominent and popular brand within Costco’s hearing centers. While Costco Kirkland hearing aids have traditionally been produced by Rexton and GN ReSound, Costco’s latest Kirkland Signature 9.0 hearing aid range are produced by the Phonak parent company, Sonova International. The devices utilize the wireless Sonova Sword chip to make the hearing aid range Bluetooth compatible, enabling users to wirelessly stream audio from their Bluetooth devices directly to their hearing aids.
