The American retailer Costco is more likely to be associated with bulk-buy goods at discounted prices than hearing health. However, since it first introduced hearing aids to its stores in 1989, the warehouse giant’s hearing healthcare network has grown considerably.

In 1992, Costco launched its own-brand Kirkland range which continues to be the value brand used across a wide selection of Costco products, from soft drinks, food and home goods to hearing aids. While Costco’s Kirkland signature hearing aids utilise some of the most advanced hearing aid technology in their devices, they are available at a much lower price than most of the company’s standard premium hearing aids.

Kirkland hearing aid reviews

As the Kirkland Signature hearing aids are so successful and generate great sales, hearing aid manufacturers compete to secure the contract to manufacture the devices under the Kirkland Signature brand. Costco’s Kirkland Signature 9.0 hearing aid is produced by Sonova International, the parent company of the Phonak hearing aid brand. Sonova has successfully created a reliable and durable hearing aid that builds on the previous Kirkland Signature 8.0 hearing aid technology to deliver reliable sound quality, powerful performance and comfort in a sleek, modern device.

Using the wireless Sonova Sword chip platform to create a hearing aid that is Bluetooth-enabled for wireless audio streaming, this receiver-in-ear (RIE) hearing aids combine convenience and seamless listening in one device.
