Many people keep a mental tab of ways that they would like to improve their lives, and what better time to implement these changes than at the beginning of a new year? “New Year, New You!” seems to be the collective spirit. This year, how about making your resolution: “New Year, New Ears?”
Stop! Don’t cut your ears off just yet. If you have hearing loss, simply wearing hearing aids can make you feel like you just put on a brand new set of ears. No blood, sweat, or tears necessary.
Do You Have Hearing Loss?
Hearing loss is the third most prevalent health issue among the aging population, falling behind arthritis and heart disease. By age 65, one in three Americans has some degree of hearing loss, according to the Hearing Loss Association of America. Despite how common it is, it’s rarely addressed. It typically takes 7-10 years for someone with hearing loss to look into getting a hearing aid. As a rule of thumb, if you think you might have hearing loss, you probably do.
Not Just Hearing Loss…
Hearing loss can impact your life in a variety of ways. Other than creating the obvious problem of not being able to hear clearly, hearing loss has also been linked to depression, anxiety, isolation, dementia, and even obesity. Luckily, getting a hearing aid will not only improve your hearing, but also help prevent the onset of any unwanted side effects.
Treating Hearing Loss
Many people don’t address their hearing loss because of the stigma associated with hearing aids. Another factor is the cost-barrier; the average price of a single hearing aid is over $2,000! Audicus was founded on the belief that quality hearing aids should be accessible to everyone. That’s why we offer stylish, invisible hearing aids with prices starting at $599. Check out our testimonials to see what some of our customers have to say.
Benefits of Hearing Aids
Still not convinced? In addition to avoiding the slew of problems mentioned above, you can also vastly improve your quality of life by wearing hearing aids. Since hearing loss typically develops slowly over time, you may not realize what you’ve been missing. Check out how wearing hearing aids has changed our customers lives here and here.
Resolve to Hear
Lastly, if you resolve to hear in 2015 you don’t have to worry about keeping up with your resolution all year long. Remember the time you got a fancy gym membership and stopped going in March? Your “new ears” will last you 4-5 years, and all you have to do is take the plunge now to reap the benefits.
Here’s to a happy and healthy 2015!
