Hearing aids might not be at the top of your list of fashion-forward accessories, and you may think that all hearing devices are clunky and cumbersome. The device you might be picturing was probably made 20 years ago.
While early hearing aids were helping people hear, they’re a far cry from modern hearing technology. Have you avoided looking after your hearing health because you don’t think you’ll find stylish hearing aids? This couldn’t be further from the truth, and at Coastal Hearing Clinic, we have hearing aids you’ll be excited to put on every morning.
Hearing loss is hard to face up to
If you’ve been struggling to hear, you’ve probably avoided acknowledging that you have hearing loss, both to yourself and others. You don’t want to admit that you’ve been straining to hear and think that having hearing loss will make you seem old. You’d rather avoid social events and stay in the quiet of your own living room than acknowledge your hearing loss. Of the nearly 40 million Americans with hearing loss, 2 in 3 don’t seek treatment for their hearing loss but continue to live in a world that’s slowly going silent.
Hearing loss affects people of all ages, from seniors to adults, teenagers, and even children. Today more than ever before, people experience hearing loss at younger ages, as we live and work in boisterous places and have unsafe listening practices, blasting music right into our ears, going to loud sports venues without hearing protection, or spending an evening in the bar where you have to yell to be heard by the person right beside you. These activities all damage hearing health, and admitting that you need help doesn’t have anything to do with your age.
Hearing aids are more stylish than you think
You might not think that hearing aids can be stylish, but before you judge, take the time to check out some of the latest hearing technology. Modern devices are sleek and sophisticated and feature programs that will make you think they’re from the future. Whatever your age, you’ll find the device that fits your style and gives you clear hearing in every environment.
Looking for a behind the ear device? You can get devices that sit in the ear or even in the ear canal. Some sit so far into the ear canal that they’re actually invisible! These hearing aids hug the back of your ear and are hard to spot.
Hearing aids come in various colors to match your complexion or hair, and you can simply conceal them if you don’t want others to know you have them. Suppose you fall in love with your new hearing aids and want to flaunt them. In that case, there are various vibrant hues to choose from that will give a burst of color to your clothing, reflect your personality, and demonstrate your ability to hear correctly.
A new generation of technology
Modern hearing aids are light years ahead of what you’re probably imagining. Their slender, ergonomic shapes are elegant and appealing, and they’re very versatile. Many devices are controlled by a smartphone app, so you’ll never need to fiddle with your devices when you want to change between programs or adjust the settings. You can choose devices with full connectivity, allowing you to stream audio from your phone, computer, TV, or other Bluetooth-enabled device right to your ears, allowing you to connect with the technology you use the most.
Have you been struggling to hear in places with a lot of background noise? Hearing aids have been proven to provide better hearing in complex listening environments than someone with natural hearing! With directional microphones, speech enhancement, and background noise reduction, you’ll be able to focus on what you want to hear and hear clearly.
