It is a known fact that investing in better hearing can carry a large price tag. Your “shopping instinct” may tell you to browse the internet and save money by purchasing your hearing aids online. Why not? We buy our airline tickets, cameras, furniture, and even our cars online.
Hearing aids are like shoes. Each person needs a specific size shoe to fit their foot, and each person needs a unique hearing aid program to ensure that the hearing aid is “just right” for their needs. But how do you know what you really need in a hearing aid—not want—need? Here are five questions you should ask during a hearing appointment to make sure you’re getting a hearing aid that’s “just right” for you!

You may know somebody, possibly even yourself, who keeps their hearing aids in a drawer rather than in their ears. There are many reasons why this happens ranging from a lack of realistic expectations to incorrect device selection to poor programming, which results in dissatisfaction, poor performance in noisy environments and squealing of the hearing aids. However, with advancements in technology and increased knowledge of the hearing mechanism, there is no reason why this should happen anymore!
Do you have an old set of hearing aids that you don’t use anymore? Why not donate them? Every year thousands of hearing aids are donated from hearing professionals and other individuals looking to help those who can’t afford hearing aids. Those hearing aids open up the world of sound to people in need. Many of the hearing aids used on international missions come from donation programs, giving the gift of better hearing to those in need, and the need is great!
