Hearing aids have their faults. But finally here are a few that actually allow you to listen with fine-tuned accuracy.

People in their middle age often begin suffering from some degree of hearing loss. And as you approach senescence the number may go up to the point where half the old timers are hard of hearing. 

This disease of lack can cause your social life to go kaput. Furthermore, it can make maneuvering your vehicle through traffic a safety hazard. 

This thing called hearing loss may even cause dementia although indirectly. The inner ear is the reason behind hearing loss. And besides growing old, exposure to startlingly loud noises may aggravate the process. 

And if it runs in the family, or you are a male, the chances more than double. If you have a buildup of earwax or are taking certain medications then by a thorough cleanup or curtailing the dosage, you may avoid hearing loss. 

However, if the process is internal then the only solution is to buy a reliable hearing aid. Nowadays you have digital hearing aids

While in the past the products just amplified the sound waves, these intelligent devices phase out the background and unnecessary noises which only distract and get in the way. And they even allow various entertainment gadgets to be directly hooked up to your hearing aid. 

The cost price ranges from a grand to six grand. Then you have the regular sound amplifiers. They are for those people who are on a shoestring budget. And so the price tag varies from $25 to $500. 

The various sorts of hearing aids include:

  • the completely in the ear canal variety,
  • the in-canal variety,
  • a half shell type,
  • a full shell type,
  • a behind the ear type
  • and last but not least…an open fit kind. 

In other words, there is no shortage of hearing devices and they come in all shapes and sizes. And a great variety of hearing aids is also available on Amazon.com. It includes:

 

Walker's Game Ear Ultra Ear ITC (Pair) for $21.94

Turbo Ear for $29.99

Rechargeable Microtron (So small it's barely visible!) for $37.33

New Digital Hearing Amplifier for $60

LifeEar Personal Audio Amplifier for $349.99

So complete your homework as to what suits you best, before you fork out the cash from your wallet. After all, informed decision-making is worth more than a shot in the dark.
