Bluetooth and Hearing Aids

Bluetooth technology is the latest and greatest feature to hit hearing aids. Much like a cell phone, hearing aids can use bluetooth technology to remotely connect to various audio inputs. Many of the world's leading hearing aid manufacturers (Siemens, Oticon, Phonak,...) have come out with a bluetooth remote paired with their hearing aids to allow connectivity.

How is this useful, you may ask? You can pair hearing aids to:

  • bluetooth-enabled cellular phones

  • bluetooth-enabled land lines

  • iPods and MP3 players

  • television

  • various other audio devices

No longer do you have to adjust or remove your hearing aids to listen to music or answer the phone. Simply switch programs and stream live audio directly into your hearing solution.

Hearing aids are necessity not luxury

In tough economic times, it is easy to let some things fall by the wayside, but hearing health should not be one of them. You certainly would not go without glasses or a prescription, yet so many remain suffering from hearing loss in silence. In the past, hearing aids were a monetary investment, highly-priced luxury items. That simply is not the case anymore. Affordable, high-end hearing aids are available at the click of a mouse.

Research has shown that those who live with hearing loss also suffer from unemployment and/or lack of career growth versus those who have a hearing solution. So what does this mean?

Going without a hearing solution not only affects personal communication and relationships, it also affects bank accounts.

Not only does Hearing Center USA have the lowest prices on the net, they also provide financing and just recently opened satellite offices in California, Florida, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

Hearing for the Holidays

Clark: Since this is Aunt Bethany's 80th Christmas, I think she should lead us in the saying of Grace.
Aunt Bethany: [turns to Lewis] What, dear?
Nora Griswold: Grace!
Aunt Bethany: Grace? She passed away thirty years ago.
Uncle Lewis: They want you to say Grace. [Bethany shakes her head in confusion]
Uncle Lewis: The BLESSING!
Aunt Bethany: [they all pose for prayer] I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands/ One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Clark: Amen.

Is this a familiar scene at your dinner table on Christmas Day? It doesn't have to be! With so many affordable, comfortable, and effective hearing aids out there, why struggle to understand your loved ones?

Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids can give you the extra volume you need to hear your grandchildren singing Christmas carols or hear and join in on the family banter over dinner. Receiver-in-canal BTEs are small and discrete, so many people won't even know you're wearing one. But don't let their small size fool you, they are powerful enough to give you the amplification necessary to hear the first snow falling outside the window.

So this year, take advantage of state-of-the-art BTE hearing solutions and surprise everyone with the gift of hearing.

Hearing and Emotional Health

Is there a link between one's hearing and emotional health? Ask any ENT or audiologist and they will assure you that there is a direct link between the two. Sound strange? Perhaps, but let's delve deeper. Suppose you are surrounded by loved ones, your spouse, or even your pet; You can hear them talking, but you're unable to make out the words. Yes, you could could ask them to repeat what they're saying, but who wants to have to ask someone to repeat things constantly?

This is a common occurence among many people with hearing loss. At first it does not seem like a big issue, but as time passes and hearing worsens, the loss affects many people. The person with hearing loss often becomes isolated, not wanting to burden or annoy people by asking them to speak louder or repeat themselves. Family and friends feel helpless and sometimes annoyed by the fact that this person cannot hear them. There have been various studies showing that people with untreated hearing loss can become emotionally isolated, depressed, have lower self-confidence, and strained relationships.

It is important to treat hearing loss sooner rather than later. The sooner hearing loss is treated, the sooner it can become normal or almost normal again. You wouldn't go without glasses or contacts just to "wait it out" until you really need them, so why would you "wait it out" until your hearing can no longer be improved.
