In the market for new hearing aids? It may be time to purchase aids or change technology. The holidays are the perfect time to treat yourself to this medical necessity.
Most hearing aids last 5 to 7 years. If your aids are past this it may be time to upgrade. If you feel like your hearing aids are not giving you the clarity you need, newer technology may help as well. Remember hearing aids only come with a certain amount of repair warranty coverage. After this, the money that you are spending on repairing old technology could be put towards something new.
Has your hearing gotten worse? Are the hearing aids you are wearing the appropriate one for you? Ask your audiologist if your current aids still have room for improvement or adjustments. If not, new hearing aids may be close in your future.
Has your health changed? Sometimes changes in health and dexterity can affect the aids you wear. Maybe you need hearing aids with a bigger battery so you can handle them better. Maybe you need to change hearing aid styles for better dexterity.
Are you more active or have new hobbies? Remember the more expensive the hearing aid the better it will work for you in those challenging places you need to hear. Have you joined more social groups? Are you still working? These are all things to consider when purchasing the right hearing aid for you. Remember you want to hear your best, not just better.
