May Is the Ideal Time to "Window Shop" for Hearing
Date:5/1/2013

WASHINGTON, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of Better Hearing and Speech Month, the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) is encouraging people with questions about their hearing to take advantage of the warm days of spring and go out and "window shop" by visiting a licensed hearing care professional.

It can take years to recognize hearing loss. After all, for so many, it comes on gradually. Then there is the time it takes to build up the confidence to address it. It may be frightening. It may be hard to accept. It may even be intimidating. But it is manageable. And it can be addressed. In fact, there are thousands of hearing care professionals across the country ready to help. And it's a big club—nearly 40 million Americans have some degree of hearing loss. For the vast majority, professionally fitted hearing aids offer great benefits.

What many people don't realize is it's easy to get a hearing test by a licensed hearing care professional. And you can do it without any purchasing commitment—no pressure. The first step is simply finding out if you have a hearing loss and identifying how significant it is. If they do recommend hearing aids, there is absolutely no need to make a decision on the spot. Just look and think about it. In fact, many licensed hearing care professionals may provide a free hearing aid evaluation. Many have different types of hearing aid simulators and demonstration hearing aids at their offices for their clients to try when they come in. And licensed hearing care professionals should offer free 30-day trials on hearing aids. So if you do want to try something out, you have plenty of time to figure out if hearing aids—and that particular type of hearing aid—are right for you.
