According to the National Institute on Deafness, people wait an average of eight years between the time they suspect they have hearing loss and when they seek treatment. And only 1 in 5 people who need hearing aids actually use them.

Why are people so averse to getting their hearing loss diagnosed and treated?

One of the main reasons is the stigma associated with hearing aids. Some people think it’s a sign of weakness; others believe it makes them look old. And still others believe the myths that hearing aids don’t work.

At Audiology & Hearing Aid Solutions, serving patients in the Clifton, Paramus, Pompton Lakes, Mahwah and Pompton Plains communities in Northern New Jersey, we understand that there are still misconceptions circulating about hearing aids, and their effectiveness.

As digital hearing aid technology continues to evolve, devices get smaller and their capabilities continue to expand. In fact, Apple and ReSound have collaborated to create the LiNX, a smart hearing aid, which is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The revolutionary devices connect wirelessly to even the newest Apple products, and work as headphones, making phone calls, FaceTime chats, music, movies, and even concerts easier to hear and more enjoyable to experience.

At Audiology & Hearing Aid Solutions, we carry a variety of hearing aids with the most recent technological advancements, which are not only more effective, but also more discreet. They offer amazing features which improve communication, reduce background noise to allow you to hear the sounds you want to hear, and can be personalized to meet your unique needs.
