Denying signs of hearing loss and not actively seeking a solution is largely attributed to the stigma that’s associated with wearing hearing aids. But what many don’t know is that hearing aid technology has come a long way. Gone are the outdated, uncomfortable and noticeably clunky hearing aids. Now, there are solutions that can be customized to the individual wearing them and some are so discreet no one will even know you’re wearing them!
Not being able to fully engage in a social situation can be frustrating. Especially when it mean missing parts of a lively conversation because there are too many competing background noises. Asking someone to have to repeat themselves becomes embarrassing, and withdrawing from social situations becomes a method of coping. But for many, coping is a way of prolonging the need for hearing aids because they don’t want to give in to showing their age.
Fortunately, today’s hearing aid technologies offer the best of both worlds: fully engage in social situations without anyone knowing you’re wearing hearing aids. You can look as young as you feel and remain the life of the party – hearing with ease and confidence. Modern technology is designed to help understand speech even in a group converation or when there’s competing background noise. Plus, the size of hearing aids has become a lot more appealing. They are durable and contain the best technology available. And hearing loss is more noticeable than a hearing aid.
