Of all the advancements made in hearing aid technology — and there have been a ton — making hearing aids rechargeable might be the one that perks people’s ears up the most.
Especially if you currently wear hearing aids that use disposable batteries. Or have worn them. Because then you know how important batteries are to your hearing aids’ performance.
But, you also know how it can be to buy hearing aid batteries, remember to buy hearing aid batteries, ensure you always have spares with you, or run out of juice in the middle of an event or conversation and have to change your hearing aid batteries.
Invest in our planet (while investing in yourself)!
With rechargeable hearing aids, you don’t have to do any of that anymore. No more buying hearing aid batteries. No more changing hearing aid batteries. No more dropping and losing the small batteries in the carpet or grass or under the bed. No more feeling bad about or trying to figure out how to dispose of hearing aid batteries.
Instead, the only thing you need to think about or do with rechargeable hearing aids is remember to put them in the charger while you sleep — so you’ll be ready to hear all day long when you put them on in the morning.
But there are many more benefits to rechargeable hearing aids than simply never having to go to the store to buy brown size 312 hearing aid batteries. Or wait, is it orange size 13?
- They sound amazing — Our newest rechargeable hearing aids are packed with features and technology that deliver our best sounding quality ever — whether it’s streaming phone calls, hearing more clearly in noise, or listening to Mother Nature.
- They’re more environmentally friendly — Over three years, two hearing aids will use more than 300 disposable hearing aid batteries. Rechargeable hearing aids won’t use any.
- They’re more economical — After the initial price of the devices, the cost can be less since you do not have to regularly purchase batteries.
- You get all-day, continuous use — Charge our hearing aids overnight, and they should last an entire day’s worth of listening and streaming.
