Hearing AIDS & ACCESSORIES
20% of all people who need hearing aids actually get them. Most people don't realize that most hearing losses can be treated with hearing aids and deny the existence of hearing loss.
Most people also don't realize that untreated hearing loss causes embarrassment, loss of independence, social stress, tension, fatigue, and eventually social isolation and loneliness - not only for the person with the hearing loss but also for family members, friends and work associates.

Common Hearing Aid Myths
People who believe they have only slightly impaired hearing often make the mistake of thinking that they don’t have much to gain from a hearing instrument.
Today, hearing devices use the latest breakthroughs in technology, not to randomly raise the volume, but to sharpen the focus of what you hear.
Assistive Listening Devices and Hearing Aid Accessories - Bluetooth, FM systems and Wireless features
Assistive listening devices (ALDs) are a variety of devices designed to improve audibility in specific listening situations. Some are designed to be used with hearing aids or cochlear implants (CIs), while others are designed to be used alone.
Assistive listening devices can usually amplify a signal, but their primary purpose isn't to make a signal louder. Rather, they place a pickup (microphone) close to the sound source and transmit the signal directly into the hearing aid; assisting in improving the signal to noise ratio; meaning that the required signal becomes louder compared to the other sounds in the environment/background.
Assistive listening devices include various Bluetooth technologies available with most hearing aid brands, which allow the hearing aids to link directly to your cell phones, landline, navigation systems, television, laptop, lapel microphone of a lecturer/speaker and so on.
Other wireless features allow you to link your hearing aids to your MP3 player, iPod, laptop (including skype). When bilateral hearing aids are worn (in both ears), the signal is transmitted into both hearing aids.
