A Hearing Aid for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Generation December 26 2014
Another great take on the issue of hearing loss within a whole generation of people who suffer from hearing loss, but have not done anything to improve their hearing. Whether it's denial, or people just don't realize their hearing isn't as good as it once was, SimpleEar offers a solution. An affordable listening device could be exactly what you need. And if you are unsure about your hearing loss, SimpleEar offers an online hearing test as well.
When it comes to hearing loss, the generation that grew up on loud music and inner-city decibels is in a bit of denial. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, an estimated 20 percent of the U.S. population has some form of hearing loss. However, a majority (80 percent) don’t do anything to address the issue. That translates to some 98 million Americans who could benefit from some sort of hearing assistance.
For some it’s not simply denial: They’re either not aware of their hearing loss, find the cost of hearing aids (which range from $1,000 to $3,000) prohibitive, or fear the psychological stigma of using a hearing aid.
