With one out of every five individuals in the US afflicted with some form of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at the least one individual who has some trouble hearing.
And bearing in mind the potent links between healthy hearing and physical, emotional, and social well-being, the holiday season is the perfect chance to give a highly meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are a few fantastic gift ideas:
A Year’s Provision of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who genuinely enjoys shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Still, hearing aids won’t accomplish much without the batteries, making them a must have. By giving a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you can get rid of the responsibility and expense associated with the work of managing the supply.

Customized Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of customized ear protection could prevent hearing damage and long-term hearing loss. And unlike the low cost foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are especially built to repress hazardous sounds while preserving the important sounds. This removes the “muffled” sound affiliated with foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids require periodic upkeep and cleaning to assure lasting, optimum performance. And while this can’t be averted, it can be made a great deal easier.
Here are some gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers use ultraviolet light to safely and comprehensively kill dangerous pathogens, such as harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers eliminate excessive moisture and extend the life of the components of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools consist of a magnet for battery removal along with other tools to clean the various parts of a hearing aid. This is the swiss army knife of hearing aid tools.
- Hearing aid storage cases can protect the hearing aids when not in use and can make transport easier.
Not certain which accessories you’ll require for a specific hearing aid? Give us a call and we’ll help you find the right products.
This is a favorite gift idea, as these gadgets convert a pair of hearing aids into a pair of top-quality earphones.
Streamers are devices that will pick up an audio signal—from a computer, TV, or other device—and will send the signal straight to the hearing aids for crystal-clear sound.
Did you know that several hearing aid models can be managed with mobile electronic devices like cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a terrific gift to begin with, but for those with hearing loss, it’s even better. With compatible hearing aids, you can discreetly adjust hearing aid volume and can adjust the settings straight from the portable device.
This is one function that, the moment you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Give us a call and we’ll let you know which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
Last but not least, if you feel like going all out this year, consider giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a set of digital hearing aids.
Of course, you can’t just go out and purchase a pair of hearing aids. Each individual’s hearing loss is unique and requires a professional hearing examination, not to mention that each individual will have special preferences with regard to hearing aid style and functionality.
But providing a gift card to cover the cost could prompt someone to at long last get the hearing aids they know will ultimately contribute to a better all-around quality of life.
And just how many gifts can accomplish that?
