Only 1 out of 5 people who could benefit from a hearing aid actually wears one. However 9 out of 10 hearing aid users report improvements in their quality of life. So, why the discrepancy between satisfaction and the number of people who use them?
One word: Stigma. Most of us associate hearing aids with the bulky devices our grandparents wore. However, today’s digital hearing aids are tiny devices that interpret sound and deliver it in the most useful way — eliminating background noise and whistling. A hearing professional can program hearing aids to meet your specific listening needs using specialized computer software. Some aids can even be adjusted using a remote control, and many include technology that allows you to connect wirelessly to electronics such as mobile phones, televisions, and MP3 players.
So don’t wait any longer. Call us today to learn more about the benefits of modern hearing aids.
