There are many myths about hearing aids that can make people uninterested in pursuing them. Here’s some common misconceptions about hearing aids that we can prove are wrong.
1) They’re uncomfortable. If your hearing aids are uncomfortable, your audiologist can fix that by changing something about how the hearing aids physically fit in your ears!
2) Hearing aids make you look old. Hearing aids are so small and inconspicuous that most people wouldn’t even notice you’re wearing them. Saying “what” or “huh” over and over is what really can make you look old!
3) Hearing aids are big and clunky. While hearing aids from 15-20 years ago may have been large and obvious, advances in technology have meant that hearing aids can be very, very tiny! Many hearing aids are less than an inch in length and sit behind your ear in a way that they can’t even be seen!
