One of our most important sensory organs are our ears, thus hearing loss has significant consequences. Hearing loss can be age-related, triggered by loud noises or infections, or hereditary. Hearing loss can occur very suddenly or accumulate over time. Fortunately, in most cases hearing impairment and quality of life can be greatly improved using hearing aids. Find out how.
Do you think you might be suffering from hearing loss? Then act now! The first step towards a better quality of life is to visit your hearing care professional. A hearing test will show if you are actually suffering from hearing loss. If you are, your hearing care professional will explain the available options. Our online hearing screening will give you an initial indication of your hearing ability.
Evolution of hearing aids
Hearing Aids have evolved from an ear trumpet in the 17th century to invisible hearing aids in the 21st century. Check out the History of Hearing Aids.
