8 Benefits Of Hearing Aids
Today’s hearing aids are sophisticated mini-computers in your ears that connect to smart phone apps which increase their functionality with a multitude of features and settings. But perhaps most importantly, hearing aids help you hear conversations and your surroundings more clearly than ever, to help you stay engaged.


Here are 8 benefits of hearing aids to consider if you have diminished hearing:


  • Hear What’s Going On Around You

With diminished hearing, you’re not just missing what’s being said in conversation – you could also be missing out on the buzz of traffic, the chirping of birds and the rustling of the wind in the trees. These sounds keep us connected to our surroundings and our environment.


  • Stay Safe

When you can’t hear the honking of a car, a ringing alarm, or someone calling out to you to be careful, hearing aids can become a lifesaver.


  • Personal Volume Control

With today’s hearing aids, you no longer have to ask someone to speak louder or to turn up the TV.  You can adjust the volume in your hearing aids to suit our hearing preferences using an app on your smartphone, and nobody else will even know.


  • Hearing Aids Are High Tech

Today’s hearing aids come with noise-filtering technology and directional microphones, so you can hear the person you are speaking to while diminishing any background noise. Some hearing aids also connect wirelessly to your TV, stereo or cell phone, so the sound from those devices can be streamed directly into your ears.


  • Get Back In The Conversation

Not being able to hear conversations may cause you to distance yourself from family and friends, and withdraw from social situations and outings where you would meet new people and do fun things. A hearing aid can remove barriers to communication, get you back on the social scene and back into the conversation.


  • Diminish Tinnitus

Many people with hearing loss also suffer from tinnitus, or a ringing in the ears. But when you wear hearing aids, you are introduced to more sounds around you, which helps to mask the tinnitus.


  • Enjoy Your Hobbies

Golf legend Arnold Palmer suffered with diminished hearing for several years before getting hearing aids and discovering the difference. He said, “When I walked out on the golf course the first day I had a hearing aid, I heard things I hadn’t heard on the golf course, like the click of hitting a putt or hitting a golf ball, or the air going through the club when I was swinging it. It made a tremendous difference.”


  • Do Better Work

Not being able to hear well at work can lead to poor job performance and decreased income. Being able to hear on phone calls and communicating effectively with coworkers is crucial to being happy and productive on the job.
