With one out of every five people in the US suffering from some degree of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at the least one individual who has some trouble hearing.
And considering the strong links between healthy hearing and physical, emotional, and social health, the holiday season is the ideal opportunity to provide a highly meaningful gift.
If you do know someone with hearing loss, here are several great gift ideas:
A Year’s Worth Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who genuinely likes 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 can get rid of the trouble and expense connected with the chore of managing the supply.

Customized Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of customized ear protection can prevent hearing damage and future hearing loss. And contrary to the cheaper foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are specially built to curb injurious sounds while preserving the important sounds. This eliminates the “muffled” sound linked with foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids will require routine maintenance and cleaning to assure lasting, optimal performance. And while this can’t be avoided, it can be made a great deal easier.
Here are some gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers make use of ultraviolet light to safely and thoroughly kill dangerous pathogens, such as harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers clear away excessive moisture and extend 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 being used and can make transport easier.
Not sure which accessories you’ll require for a particular hearing aid? Give us a call and we’ll help you find the most suitable products.
This is a favorite gift idea, as these products turn a pair of hearing aids into a set of premium headsets.
Streamers are gadgets that will acquire 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 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 terrific gift in the first place, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. With compatible hearing aids, you can subtly control hearing aid volume and can adjust the settings straight from the portable device.
This is one feature that, once you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Give us a call and we’ll let you know 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.
Of course, you can’t just go out and purchase 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 distinct preferences in terms of hearing aid style and functionality.
But providing a gift card to cover the expense could encourage someone to finally buy the hearing aids they know will ultimately contribute to a greater all-around quality of life.
And how many gifts can really accomplish that?
