With one out of every five individuals in the US suffering with some form of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at the least one person who has some difficulty hearing.
And considering the strong connections amongst healthy hearing and physical, emotional, and social well-being, the holiday season is the ideal opportunity to give an extremely meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are a couple of fantastic gift ideas:
A Year’s Provision of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who genuinely looks forward to shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nonetheless, hearing aids will not accomplish much without the batteries, making them a must have. By giving a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could get rid of the burden and cost associated with the process of managing the supply.

Personalized Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of custom made ear protection can protect against hearing injury and future hearing loss. And contrary to the inexpensive foam earplugs available at the convenience store, custom earplugs are specially built to repress hazardous sounds while conserving the important sounds. This gets rid of the “muffled” sound caused by foam earplugs.
Talk to us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids mandate periodic upkeep and cleaning to ensure sustained, optimal performance. And although this can’t be averted, it can be made a whole lot easier.
Here are some gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers use ultraviolet light to safely and thoroughly kill harmful pathogens, such as harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers remove excess moisture and increase the life of the parts of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools include a magnet for battery removal along with other tools to clean the various 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 in use and can make transport more convenient.
Uncertain of which accessories you’ll need for a particular hearing aid? Give us a call and we’ll help you find the right products.
This is a popular gift idea, as these gadgets convert a pair of hearing aids into a set of top-quality headphones.
Streamers are gadgets that will detect an audio signal—from a computer, TV, or other device—and will deliver the signal straight to the hearing aids for crystal-clear sound.
Did you know that numerous hearing aid models can be controlled with mobile electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a tremendous gift in the first place, but for those with hearing loss, it’s even better. Along with compatible hearing aids, you can subtly control hearing aid volume and can adjust the settings right from the portable device.
This is one feature that, once you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Talk to us and we’ll let you know which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
Last but not least, if you feel like going all out this year, consider giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a set of digital hearing aids.
Of course, you can’t just go out and buy a pair of hearing aids. Each person’s hearing loss is distinctive and requires a hearing test, not to mention that each individual will have specific preferences with regard to hearing aid style and functionality.
But providing a gift card to cover the expense could prompt someone to finally buy the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a greater overall quality of life.
And how many gifts can really accomplish that?
