Many Americans don’t pay much attention to hearing problems. Some try to get used to new conditions and somehow adapt to difficulties, while others simply don’t want to see a doctor, assuming that the problems will go away on their own.
Most of them are simply not aware of a simple and effective solution to their hearing difficulties. Daily use of hearing aids is very effective in such situations. Let’s take a closer look at what modern hearing aids are and how they help Americans in everyday life.
What is a Hearing Aid?
Even if you have healthy hearing, you’ve probably come across information or advertisements about hearing aids. What is it? A hearing aid is a technologically sophisticated handheld device, which restores the ability to hear. Using the device increases the volume of the human voice and surrounding sounds, and prevents the progression of hearing loss. The modern market offers a huge selection of models, which help solve many hearing problems. In addition, the audiologist selects the device according to the individual parameters and wishes of the patient, making the hearing aid an indispensable assistant in everyday life!
How do hearing aids help in everyday life?
Hearing aids are indispensable for millions of Americans with hearing problems. But despite their obvious benefits, people are slow to seek help from hearing care professionals. Hearing aids literally change a person’s life, dividing it into “before” and “after”, helping to forget about difficulties and return to a full and happy life!
Say no to self-isolation!
Hearing loss leads to the development of other physiological problems. For example, a decrease in the cognitive abilities of the brain or problems with orientation in space. However, few Americans realize that along with hearing loss come psychological problems, which gradually lead to severe depression. Due to the inability to communicate normally with others, a person with hearing loss becomes isolated and gradually falls out of society. To prevent this complication, you only need to contact a specialist in time and start using hearing aids.
There are different devices on the market today. They differ in both design and additional functions. For example, Styletto is a popular range of hearing aids from the renowned Signia brand. For a fraction of the price, you get great devices with Adaptive Streaming Volume, e2e wireless 3.0, Extended dynamic range, and Own Voice Processing.
Everyday use of hearing aids will eradicate all difficulties and limitations. Go to restaurants, hang out with friends, enjoy movies, have fun during the holidays. Do all your favorite things!
Hearing loss no longer interferes with outdoor activities and sports
Together with good nutrition, sport plays a vital role in the life of every American. An active lifestyle is a great way to maintain good mood and fitness. Moreover, it’s an important factor in socialization. If you are hearing impaired, then you probably often face a difficult choice: whether to wear a hearing aid during activities (games, training in the gym, running) or not. Why is this happening? Dr. Zhanneta Shapiro identifies the following constraints:
Fear of losing or damaging an expensive device
Your hearing aid may interfere with the exercise
Unwillingness to show others your hearing problems
People who think that way and don’t wear devices are making a big mistake. After all, hearing aids are the last thing you should be ashamed of. It’s no different from glasses that are worn without embarrassment, including during sports. It does not differ much from a protective bandage on an injured elbow or knee. Moreover, today there are special models designed for active people, for example, Signia Active. These small in-ear hearing devices allow you to play sports without fearing breaking them. Additional features such as Recharge on-the-go, AI Digital Assist, Total Spatial Speech Focus, Instant Fit, Tinnitus management, and Bluetooth streaming will make them even more comfortable and enjoyable.
Sport – is life. Despite its banality, this statement doesn’t require a lengthy explanation. Don’t make an exception when playing sports if hearing aids are an integral part of your life.
Hearing restoration improves the quality of life
At Audiology Island, we believe that hearing plays a vital role in everyone’s life. Therefore, hearing problems can’t be simply ignored or forgotten. Sooner or later, the problem will manifest itself. How Do Hearing Aids Improve the Quality of Life for Americans? The constant feeling of physical and psychological fatigue disappears. The quality of sleep improves, depressive manifestations disappear, and memory and brain function also improve.
Modern Signia hearing aid solutions allow you to hear the speaker’s speech even in the most difficult acoustic situations, such as a noisy bar or restaurant. Additional features such as wireless connectivity enable you to receive audio signals directly from mobile phones, TVs, and MP3 players.
According to sociological research, approximately 80% of hearing aid users report a significant improvement in their quality of life with daily use of the device. This fact speaks for itself!
Strong relationship despite hearing impairments
Hearing loss is often the cause of relationship breakdown. Sometimes people that have lived together for more than a dozen years can break up if the partner begins to experience hearing problems.
The ability to communicate with a person that has a hearing impairment requires practice and patience from both parties. It is very important to understand that at least two people are involved in any communication process.
Not every couple knows how to cope with new challenges or does it wrong, which leads to further aggravation of the situation. Loudly working household appliances, constant stress, or the inability to communicate over time lead to a split between people.
However, relationships with hearing loss can be long and happy! It’s enough to love each other and follow our guidelines, which describe the correct response to difficulties in a hearing loss relationship. Hearing aids solve almost all problems that can lead to the destruction of the family. To further strengthen your relationship, take care of your hearing issues, visit hearing care professionals and choose the model, which suits you.
For example, Pure Charge&Go are popular devices from a well-known manufacturer with an excellent reputation – Signia. These inexpensive models have additional features that set them apart from the competition. These are Sound Clarity, e2e wireless 3.0, Extended dynamic range, Dynamic Soundscape Processing, Own Voice Processing, and EchoShield. They will allow you to forget about problems and strengthen your love!
How and where to choose a hearing aid?
A hearing aid is a complex technological device, which requires individual adjustment. Of course, you can buy the model you like in the store on your own and without consulting a specialist. But in this case, you risk getting a negative experience and not achieving the desired result.
Therefore, the first step in choosing a hearing device is consulting an audiologist. The doctor will diagnose hearing loss and determine its characteristics. Together with your wishes and needs, a specialist will select the ideal device for you. This is the only way to get the best results!
Audiology Island has extensive experience in hearing aids. We have selected, configured, and helped to adapt to devices for many patients. Have you decided to change your life for the better? Do you want to hear your favorite voices again? We are waiting for you in our clinic!
