With one out of every five individuals in the US affected by some form of hearing loss, there’s a good chance you know at least one individual who has some difficulty hearing.
And considering the potent connections amongst healthy hearing and physical, mental, and social health, the holiday season is the optimal chance to provide a highly meaningful gift.
If you do know someone with hearing loss, here are several excellent gift ideas:
A Year’s Worth Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who really takes pleasure in shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nonetheless, hearing aids won’t achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a necessity. By providing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could eliminate the trouble and cost connected with the task of managing the supply.

Customized Ear Protection
Are you shopping for any musicians? Any hunters in the family?
The gift of custom made ear protection can prevent hearing damage and long-term hearing loss. And unlike the low cost foam earplugs available at the convenience store, custom earplugs are especially designed to repress damaging sounds while conserving the important sounds. This helps prevent the “muffled” sound linked with foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids necessitate periodic maintenance and cleaning to ensure continued, optimal performance. And while this can’t be avoided, 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 make use of ultraviolet light to safely and comprehensively kill harmful pathogens, including harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers remove 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 being used and can make transport more convenient.
Not sure which accessories you’ll require for a particular hearing aid? Contact us and we’ll help you find the most suitable products.
This is a popular gift idea, as these products turn a pair of hearing aids into a set of premium earphones.
Streamers are gadgets that will pick up an audio signal—from a TV, computer, or other device—and will send the signal straight to the hearing aids for crystal-clear sound.
Are you aware that several hearing aid models can be operated with portable electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a superb gift in the first place, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. Along with compatible hearing aids, you can subtly control hearing aid volume and can alter the settings straight from the portable device.
This is one function that, the moment you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Talk to us and we’ll inform you of which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
And finally, if you want to go all-out this year, how about giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a pair of digital hearing aids.
As you can imagine, you can’t just go out and buy a pair of hearing aids. Each person’s hearing loss is distinctive and requires a 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 at long last get the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a better all-around quality of life.
And just how many gifts can really accomplish that?
