With one out of every five people in the United States battling 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 connections amongst healthy hearing and physical, psychological, and social well-being, the holiday season is the perfect opportunity to give an extremely meaningful gift.
If you do know someone with hearing loss, here are some excellent gift ideas:
A Year’s Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who really takes pleasure in shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nonetheless, hearing aids won’t achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a must have. By furnishing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you can take away the burden and cost associated with the task of managing the supply.

Custom-made Ear Protection
Are you shopping for any musicians? Any hunters in the family?
The gift of specialty ear protection could protect against hearing damage and future hearing loss. And in contrast to the cheap foam earplugs available at the convenience store, custom earplugs are expressly manufactured to curb hazardous sounds while preserving the essential sounds. This eliminates the “muffled” sound caused by foam earplugs.
Talk to us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids demand routine maintenance and cleaning to assure lasting, optimal performance. And while this can’t be averted, it can be made a great deal easier.
Here are a couple of gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers use ultraviolet light to safely and thoroughly kill dangerous pathogens, such as harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers eliminate excessive moisture and extend the life of the parts 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 more convenient.
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.
Here’s a popular gift idea, as these products turn a pair of hearing aids into a pair of high-quality earphones.
Streamers are devices that will pick up an audio signal—from a TV, computer, or other device—and will deliver the signal straight to the hearing aids for crystal clear sound.
Are you aware that numerous hearing aid models can be controlled 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 modify the settings right from the portable device.
This is one feature that, once 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.
Last but not least, if you want to go all out this year, how about giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a pair of digital hearing aids.
Keep in mind, you can’t just venture out and purchase a pair of hearing aids. Each person’s hearing loss is distinctive and requires a hearing test, not to mention that each individual will have special preferences in terms of hearing aid style and functionality.
But providing a gift card to cover the cost could encourage someone to at long last get the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a better overall quality of life.
And how many gifts can really accomplish that?
