Better Hearing Institute Publishes Comprehensive Consumer Guide to Buying Hearing Aids
Date:5/27/2010

based on whether the hearing aids demonstrably improve your ability to hear.

The number of Americans with hearing loss has grown to more than 34 million—roughly 11 percent of the U.S. population—according to a recent BHI study. Over the past generation, hearing loss among Americans has increased at a rate of 160 percent of U.S. population growth and is one of the most commonly unaddressed health conditions in America today.

Numerous studies have linked untreated hearing loss to a wide range of physical and emotional conditions, including irritability, negativism, anger, fatigue, tension, stress, depression, avoidance or withdrawal from social situations, social rejection and loneliness, reduced alertness and increased risk to personal safety, impaired memory and ability to learn new tasks, reduced job performance and earning power, and diminished psychological and overall health. The effects of untreated hearing loss can be especially devastating for children. Even a mild hearing loss can have a negative impact on language competence, cognitive development, social and emotional well-being, and academic achievement.

Advances in digital technology have dramatically improved hearing aids in recent years, making them smaller with better sound quality. Designs are modern, sleek, and discreet. Clarity, greater directionality, better speech audibility in a variety of environments, better cell phone compatibility, less whistling and feedback then hearing aids of the past, and greater ruggedness for active lifestyles are common features. In fact, nine out of ten hearing aid users report improvements in their quality of life, according to a survey by BHI of more than 2,300 consumers.

"The greatest advice I can give anyone purchasing a hearing aid is to communicate openly with your hearing health professional during the trial period about whether or not you are receiving satisfactory benefit from your hearing aids,"
