The statistics are alarming. According to the National Institute on Deafness, more than 36 million Americans have a hearing loss—this includes 17% of our adult population. The incidence of hearing loss increases with age.
Approximately one third of Americans between ages 65 and 74 and nearly half of those over age 75 have hearing loss (NIDCD, 2010).
Hearing loss is the third most prevalent chronic health condition facing older adults (Collins, 1997).
Unfortunately, only 20% of those individuals who might benefit from treatment actually seek help.

It isn’t a secret that people often delay getting their hearing tested, so you’re not alone if you are ignoring that little voice in your head that says you may not be hearing correctly. You probably know the signs of hearing loss, but you might not realize how it is affecting you and your family’s life.
Here are some situations where hearing aids might help:
6 signs you should invest in hearing aids
1. You can’t hear the television – Difficulty hearing the television is a common complaint among people with hearing loss. Often, this is solved by turning up the volume very high, much to the annoyance of other family members. Hearing aids paired with assistive listening devices like T-DEX help you enjoy your favorite shows and movies without the volume being so loud that it wakes the neighbors.
2. Your spouse tells you that you aren’t hearing correctly – Hearing loss can affect relationships as communications becomes increasingly more difficult. An article by the American-Speech-Language-Hearing Association states that, “As audiologists, we are not surprised to hear that the spouse or significant other has been frustrated by the hearing loss long before the individual with the hearing loss even acknowledges it.” If your spouse often tells you that you’re speaking too loudly, it’s time to see a hearing professional.
3. You can’t hear your grandchildren – Young children’s voices are especially difficult to hear given their high pitches and odd pronunciations. Luckily, the signal processing strategy of hearing aids focuses on making speech audible in all situations
4. You have trouble following conversation in a crowded restaurant – Noisy restaurants make for difficult listening environments for people with average hearing levels. Communication can be impossible for people with hearing loss. Luckily hearing aids are equipped with directional microphones, speech enhancers, and feedback cancellation to help in these types of situations.
5. You often ask people to repeat themselves – “What did you say?” “Huh?” “Come again?” Sound familiar? They’re common expressions for people with undiagnosed hearing loss. Modern hearing aids are made to focus on speech, so you won’t feel like you are always missing out on the conversation.
6. You keep putting off that visit to the hearing professional – Statistics show that only 20 percent of those who might benefit from a hearing aid actually buy one. So you are not alone in making empty promised to your family about getting a hearing evaluation. Luckily, your first hearing examination will be quick and painless.
