#HearingFactFriday: Most people are satisfied with their hearing aids

Until you’ve tried hearing aids, it’s tempting to assume they might not really help or do you any good. That’s because, for a long time, hearing aids have gotten a bad rap. Even just this week, the New York Times published an Op-Ed asking, “Glasses are cool. Why aren’t hearing aids?”

But people who do wear hearing aids universally like them and are glad they do wear them, as today’s fact highlights. Add Jennifer Finney Boylan, the NYT’s Op-Ed writer, to that list. She writes, “wearing hearing aids can change your life in an instant — not to mention that of the people you love.”

Today’s fact was from a survey taken in 2011. Hearing aids in 2017 are smarter and sound even better than their 2011 counterparts. With features that help block out background noise, focus on speech more precisely, help music sound more natural, and improve spatial perception, it’s safe to assume the 88 percent would be even higher today.

If you haven’t tried hearing aids, you’re missing out. Call 1-888-908-1845 or click here to request an appointment with a local hearing professional who can set you up with a 30-day trial.
