Hearing Loss Is Increasing

Statistics show us that hearing loss already affects nearly one out of every five American adults. Statistics also tell us that the number increases along with age. Thus, it only makes sense that as more people live longer, more people with hearing loss are seeking help.

Hearing Aids Are A Proven Solution

Where there is increased demand, there usually is increased supply. And sure enough, from the Internet to retail stores to local insurance providers, there are now more places than ever to buy hearing aids.

Where You Get Hearing Aids Is Important

Buyer Beware. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to hearing loss. Just as every person is unique, every hearing loss and hearing need is unique too. To ensure you get a hearing aid that's custom fit to your precise needs and lifestyle, it's always recommended that you consult a hearing healthcare professional. He or she may find other health-related issues that could be causing your hearing loss.

Always Consult A Hearing Healthcare Professional

The Better Hearing Institute (BHI), a non-profit center for hearing advocacy, recently published a consumer warning about "do-it-yourself" hearing care, stating, "hearing devices that are purchased over-the-counter or Internet without the consultation of a hearing healthcare professional may result in the devices not being accurately customized to the specific hearing needs of the individual."

One Size Does NOT Fit All

Sergei Kochkin, Executive Director of the BHI reiterates this point, writing in his published warning, "The process requires a complete in-person hearing assessment in a sound booth; the training and skills of a credentialed hearing healthcare professional in order to prescriptively fit the hearing aids using sophisticated computer programs; and appropriate in-person follow-up and counseling. This is not possible when consumers purchase one-size-fits-all hearing aids over the Internet or elsewhere."

Get The Most Out Of Your Investment

Hearing aids purchased without the consultation or advice of a hearing healthcare professional risk doing more damage than good - both both your confidence and your wallet. That's because hearing aids purchased without help from an expert might not sound good, might not work well, and probably won't be hearing aids you'll want to wear.
