Are Hearing Aids for Seniors Only?

It is a massive misconception to think that hearing aids are only of use to the elderly and aging. Simply put, this just isn’t true.

Sure, Otofonix has many customers enjoying later life, but there are plenty of circumstances where our hearing aids are helping much younger clients with their mild to moderate hearing loss needs as well.

Studies from have shown that more and more young people are being diagnosed with hearing problems and one in four 18-44 year-olds using headphones reports hearing problems.

According to the American study conducted last year, one in four young New York adults aged 18-44 reports hearing loss, and hearing problems are found in 23% of people who use headphones at a high volume at least five days a week for four hours a day.

However, not all hearing loss problems are caused by headphones, and many young people who suffer hearing loss do so due to medical issues.

Sadly, hearing loss is not something that simply goes away on its own and will only get worse as the person ages. If you or someone you know is experiencing a loss of hearing, now is the time to take action. A hearing aid could be all that’s needed to enjoy better hearing and do all of the things you may be missing out on such as music festivals and movie marathons.

Otofonix has been helping the younger generation with mild to moderate hearing loss for years with our hearing aids for adults with hearing loss, and thanks to our discreet slate grey and cream beige colored devices, no one need ever suspect that you have hearing loss.

Each Otofonix hearing aid also comes complete with a sturdy travel case for those backpacking adventures and offer excellent value for money for people who’d rather be spending their hard-earned cash on fun than digital hearing devices.
