When should you upgrade your hearing aids?
The lifespan of a hearing aid is about 5 years. After that, the device may not work to its full potential, and hearing clearly can help prevent depression, social isolation, dementia, anxiety, falls and other accidents. Therefore, it’s vital that your hearing aid is well maintained and working correctly.
With all of the recent new and exciting technology in the hearing aid industry, is it time to consider upgrading? Here are three reasons you may want to consider an upgrade:
To Accommodate a Change in Hearing
Changes in hearing can happen at any time and without warning. Difficulty with understanding speech, TV, or hearing in noisy environments are signs your hearing may have changed. Upgrading to more sophisticated technology can help deal with these changes.
To Accommodate a Change in Lifestyle
As we age, not only does our hearing change but careers, hobbies, and living arrangements do too. A more active lifestyle can take you from a quiet environment to a much busier one, and back to a quieter place all within hours. Perhaps your new career involves more conference calls and meetings held in restaurants. Treating your hearing loss with the most sophisticated technology available will allow you to hear well in many challenging environments that you otherwise didn’t frequent.
To Improve Hearing Aid Performance
Experienced hearing aid wearers often develop specific listening preferences and are eager to try new technology to compare it to their current hearing aids. With so many advancements in this field, there is practically no reason to be uncomfortable in any way. New hearing aids and other hearing devices can stream music, answer phone calls and give wearers more control over settings and functionality.
