Stop rejecting hearing aids!
Here are two interesting statistics:
Hearing loss is very common. In the United States, half of people over 60, two-thirds of people over 70, and four-fifths of people over 85 have hearing loss.
However, less than one in five people interfered with their hearing loss.
Why are there so many people suffering from hearing loss and so few people acting?
Cost is of course one of the reasons, and the misunderstanding of hearing aids makes many people refuse to wear them. Many people have long equated the use of hearing aids with acknowledgment of getting old.
Gone are the days when hearing aids didn't look good
In the past, hearing aids were usually very large, almost all b
The harm of hearing loss in the elderly
Elderly hearing loss can cause a series of problems such as decreased auditory and speech communication ability, degraded quality of life, insufficient social exercise, etc., which requires extensive attention from the whole society and active early intervention.
▪️Decreased auditory and verbal communication skills
The early stage of elderly hearing loss is dominated by high frequency drop, which is reflected in the drop in speech recognition rate, which is especially obvious in noisy environments. When the mid-to-low frequency also descends, it is difficult to c

There are many elderly people in their 50s and 60s who are not very clear after hearing loss. They are also equipped with hearing aids. However, they don’t wear them often after wearing them for a while. What is the matter? What is the reason for them to wear? Wu Peina, chief physician of the Department of Otolaryngology, Guangdong Provincial People's Hospital, analyzed this.
There are three main reasons why the elderly do not want to wear hearing aids.
Wu Peina pointed out that there are some reasons why some people do not wear it afterwards: First, the habit problem, because people in the age group of 50 to 70 years old say that they are old, but many people are psychologically reluctant to admit themselves. old. Wearing a hearing aid will affect the appearance, objectively giving people the feeling that he has entered the ranks of the elderl

What are the benefits of hearing aids with wireless Bluetooth technology?
Wireless Bluetooth technology is a short-range signal transmission technology. Audio signals can be transmitted between electronic devices via wireless Bluetooth technology without cable connection. Many electronic devices such as mobile phones, MP3s, and computers have wireless Bluetooth technology.
Hearing aids with wireless Bluetooth technology directly utilize Bluetooth technology to make the listening dream of users wearing traditional hearing aids a reality. They often complain that the effect of picking up a mobile phone is poor, can't directly listen to MP3, and watch TV is unclear.

Ten benefits of wearing hearing aids in both ears!
1. Improve sound source positioning ability
The human ear has a strong sound source positioning capability. However, its prerequisite is that both ears must have the same hearing threshold. In the process of air transmission, there will be changes in energy and speed. If the hearing loss and the threshold are asymmetrical, the direction of the sound source cannot be determined. Therefore, the binaural option can better improve the positioning ability of the sound source.
2. Improve noise reduction and speech understanding
Hearing aid simple fault self-check
In daily use, users will inevitably encounter some minor problems. It is a little troublesome to go to the inspection center.
You can learn some simple fault self-checking skills with Xiaobian, and you can solve the problem quickly and easily!

Cochlear implant staging bilaterally
[Do you want to recover from bilateral cochlear staging?
Dear friends, there have been a number of parents and friends who have been on the sidelines in the near future to consult the rehabilitation of the posterior side. The details are as follows, for everyone to understand! On the side of the side to do the cochlea, medically also called "scheduled bilateral". Parents who are on both sides of the staging will find that the child's first side of the cochlear hearing rehabilitation effect is already very good, and the language recovery is also very good, but after the side of the cochlea is turned on, there is still an inaudible situation. Therefore, many parents have reported tha
How long is the life of a hearing aid so long?
For hearing aid users, it takes hundreds of dollars or thousands of dollars to buy a hearing aid. Of course, it takes many years. People often have the impression that the more expensive the hearing aid, the longer the life expectancy.
But in fact, there are many people who say that the special expensive hearing aids that were bought a few years ago don't seem to last much longer. What is going on? Any electronic product has a design life, and hearing aids are no exception. If used properly and maintained in a timely manner, the life of the hearing aid can be significantly extended.

In terms of hearing aids, batteries are one of the most important things. Hearing aids require a high-quality hearing aid battery to obtain a stable power supply for proper and correct operation. Low battery or defective batteries can seriously affect the performance of hearing aids.
Does temperature affect the use of hearing aid batteries?
Among all environmental factors, temperature is the biggest factor. This is related to the temperature-dependent electrochemical reaction that occurs at the electrode/electrolyte interface, which can be considered the heart of the battery. As the temperature drops, the reaction rate of the electrode also decreases, and the current decreases. When used, it takes a lot of energy to gradually return to ro

Wearing a hearing aid, the wind is very noisy, can you eliminate it?
The hearing of the elderly is declining, and the hearing aids should be worn in time, otherwise the hearing will be worse or worse and lead to deafness. Because of the aging of the body, the shrinking of the cochlear hair cells, the deterioration of the hearing center function, etc., the hearing is declining and even deafness, so many elderly people always complain that they are “audible but inaudible”. However, wearing a hearing aid can just make up for this shortcoming, making the sound heard clear and loud, while slowing down the aging process of the hearing system. Therefore, the elderly and their children who are reminded of hearing loss should wear hearing aids in time to avoid hearing loss.
