Sources of Wisdom for Combatting Hearing Loss

HearingAids 9 600x144

Those men (and women) who have decided to do something about their hearing loss can find it challenging to get accurate and objective information about assisted-hearing devices. The result for many of them is spending a lot of time with trial-and-error to find a usable solution, and that they end up with no usable device. The culprit may well be that the great multitide of different manufacturers and models of hearing aids and personal sound amplification products (PSAPs) is not matched by reliable comparisons of specifications and analysis of plusses and minuses. One would expect that Consumer Reports would be a good source, but although they offer a good general overview,it is difficult/impossible to find how one can actually BUY their reviews. Fortunately there is an authoritative and objective free website that contains a wealth of information that can be helpful before and during their journey. Three of the most helpful “Sections” are Better Hearing Consumer featuring Gael Hannan, Hearing Economics featuring Holly Hosford-Dunn, and Wayne’s World featuring Dr. Wayne Staab.
