With one out of every five people in the United States suffering from some form of hearing loss, there’s a good chance you know at the least one individual who has some difficulty hearing.
And considering the potent links among healthy hearing and physical, mental, 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 excellent gift ideas:
A Year’s Worth Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who really enjoys shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Still, hearing aids will not achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a must have. By providing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could eliminate the burden and cost associated with the challenge of managing the supply.

Customized Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of specialty ear protection can reduce the risk of hearing injury and long-term hearing loss. And in contrast to the inexpensive foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are expressly constructed to inhibit hazardous sounds while conserving the essential sounds. This removes the “muffled” sound caused by foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids will require periodic maintenance and cleaning to assure prolonged, maximum performance. And although this can’t be avoided, it can be made a great deal easier.
Here are some gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers utilize ultraviolet light to safely and thoroughly kill dangerous pathogens, including harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers eliminate excessive moisture and prolong the life of the components of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools feature 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 being used 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 most suitable products.
This is a popular gift idea, as these gadgets convert a pair of hearing aids into a set of premium headphones.
Streamers are devices that will acquire 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 numerous hearing aid models can be controlled with mobile electronic devices like cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a great gift to begin with, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. Together with compatible hearing aids, you can subtly control hearing aid volume and can modify the settings right 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.
Last but not least, if you feel like going all-out this year, consider giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a pair of digital hearing aids.
Of course, you can’t just venture out and purchase a pair of hearing aids. Each person’s hearing loss is unique 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 expense could encourage someone to at long last get the hearing aids they know will ultimately contribute to a better overall quality of life.
And just how many gifts can accomplish that?
