With one out of every five individuals in the US suffering with some form of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at least one person who has some difficulty hearing.
And bearing in mind the potent connections between healthy hearing and physical, psychological, and social well-being, the holiday season is the ideal chance to provide a highly meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are a few fantastic gift ideas:
A Year’s Worth Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who actually enjoys shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nonetheless, hearing aids won’t accomplish much without the batteries, which makes them a necessity. By furnishing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could remove the trouble and cost connected with the process of managing the supply.
Not certain which hearing aid batteries to order? Give us a call.
Custom Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of specialty ear protection can reduce the risk of hearing damage and long-term hearing loss. And unlike the inexpensive foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are specially constructed to repress injurious sounds while preserving the important sounds. This eliminates the “muffled” sound affiliated with foam earplugs.

Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids will require routine maintenance and cleaning to assure lasting, maximum performance. And although this can’t be averted, it can be made a great deal easier.
Here are a couple of gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers apply ultraviolet light to safely and comprehensively kill hazardous pathogens, such as harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers clear away excessive moisture and prolong 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 assorted 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 in use and can make transport easier.
Not sure which accessories you’ll need for a specific hearing aid? Give us a call and we’ll help you find the right products.
This is a popular gift idea, as these gadgets turn a pair of hearing aids into a pair of top-quality earphones.
Streamers are devices that will pick up an audio signal—from a computer, TV, or other device—and will deliver the signal straight to the hearing aids for crystal-clear sound.
Did you know that numerous hearing aid models can be managed with portable electronic devices like cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is an outstanding gift to begin with, but for those with hearing loss, it’s even better. With compatible hearing aids, you can inconspicuously adjust hearing aid volume and can alter the settings straight from the portable device.
This is one feature that, the moment you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Give us a call and we’ll inform you of which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
Last but not least, 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 venture out and buy a pair of hearing aids. Each individual’s hearing loss is distinctive and will require a professional hearing test, not to mention that each individual will have distinct preferences with regard to hearing aid style and functionality.
But providing a gift card to cover the expense could prompt someone to finally buy the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a greater all-around quality of life.
And how many gifts can accomplish that?
