With one out of every five people in the US suffering with some form of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at least one person who has some trouble hearing.
And bearing in mind the strong links between healthy hearing and physical, mental, and social well-being, the holiday season is the ideal chance to provide a highly meaningful gift.
If you do know someone with hearing loss, here are a couple of excellent gift ideas:
A Year’s Worth Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who really takes pleasure in shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nevertheless, hearing aids will not achieve much without the batteries, making them a must have. By furnishing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you can take away the responsibility and expense associated with the process of managing the supply.

Custom Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the family?
The gift of custom made ear protection could reduce the risk of hearing damage and long-term hearing loss. And in contrast to the cheaper foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are especially designed to curb hazardous sounds while conserving the important sounds. This eliminates the “muffled” sound related to foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids require periodic maintenance and cleaning to assure continued, maximum performance. And although this can’t be averted, it can be made a whole lot 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 clear away excess moisture and prolong the life of the components of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools include a magnet for battery removal in addition to 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 particular hearing aid? Give us a call and we’ll help you find the right products.
This is a popular gift idea, as these devices turn a pair of hearing aids into a set of premium earphones.
Streamers are gadgets that will acquire an audio signal—from a TV, computer, or other device—and will send the signal directly to the hearing aids for crystal clear sound.
Did you know that numerous hearing aid models can be managed with portable electronic devices like cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a fantastic gift in the first place, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. Along with compatible hearing aids, you can inconspicuously 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. Talk to us and we’ll let you know which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
And finally, if you want to go all-out this year, consider giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a set of digital hearing aids.
As you can imagine, you can’t just venture out and buy a pair of hearing aids. Each person’s hearing loss is unique and will require a hearing examination, not to mention that each individual will have specific preferences with regard to hearing aid style and functionality.
But presenting a gift card to cover the cost could prompt someone to at long last buy the hearing aids they know will ultimately contribute to a better all-around quality of life.
And just how many gifts can really accomplish that?
