With one out of every five people in the US affected by some degree of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at the least one individual who has some trouble hearing.
And considering the potent connections between healthy hearing and physical, psychological, and social well-being, the holiday season is the ideally suited chance to provide an extremely meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are a couple of great gift ideas:
A Year’s Worth Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who really likes shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Still, hearing aids will not achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a requirement. By giving a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could take away the trouble and expense associated with the process of managing the supply.

Personalized Ear Protection
Are you shopping for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of tailor made ear protection can prevent hearing damage and future hearing loss. And unlike the cheap foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are specifically built to control damaging sounds while preserving the important sounds. This eliminates the “muffled” sound associated with foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids will require periodic upkeep and cleaning to ensure ongoing, optimum performance. And while this can’t be averted, it can be made a whole lot easier.
Here are a few gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers utilize ultraviolet light to safely and comprehensively kill hazardous pathogens, such as harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers remove excessive moisture and extend the life of the components of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools consist of a magnet for battery removal along with other tools to clean the various parts of a hearing aid. This is the swiss army knife of hearing aid tools.
- Hearing aid storage cases can protect the hearing aids when not being used and can make transport easier.
Uncertain of which accessories you’ll require for a specific hearing aid? Contact us and we’ll help you find the most suitable products.
This is a favorite gift idea, as these gadgets turn a pair of hearing aids into a pair of premium headsets.
Streamers are devices that will acquire an audio signal—from a computer, TV, or other device—and will deliver the signal straight to the hearing aids for crystal-clear sound.
Are you aware that several hearing aid models can be operated with mobile electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a great gift to begin with, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. With compatible hearing aids, you can subtly adjust hearing aid volume and can modify the settings right from the portable device.
This is one feature that, once you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Talk to us and we’ll let you know which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
And finally, if you want to go all-out this year, consider giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a pair of digital hearing aids.
Admittedly, you can’t just go out and purchase a pair of hearing aids. Each individual’s hearing loss is distinctive and requires a professional hearing examination, not to mention that each individual will have specific preferences with regard to hearing aid style and functionality.
But presenting a gift card to cover the expense could encourage someone to finally buy the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a greater overall quality of life.
And just how many gifts can accomplish that?
