Hearing loss is something that happens gradually over time. When things change slowly, it’s often hard to notice the change. That’s why millions of people who have hearing loss insist they don’t have a problem. If you think your family member or friend might be one of the millions who don’t realize how much they are missing, you could open a door to understanding with a thoughtful gift of a hearing device for TV viewing.
What Are the Consequences of Hearing Loss
According to the Hearing Loss Association of America, “Hearing loss has been shown to negatively impact nearly every dimension of the human experience, including physical health, emotional and mental health, perceptions of mental acuity, social skills, family relationships, and self-esteem, as well as work and school performance.”
When someone can’t hear the TV, can’t follow a conversation or hear the phone, they will be progressively cut off from the life around them. As frustrating as it is to miss the punchline when you’re watching your favorite comedy, that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the possible consequences of hearing loss. Social isolation is common and that can, understandably, lead to depression.
How Many People Could Benefit from Wireless Speakers for TV?
According to the Hearing Loss Association of America:
- Approximately 48 million Americans have some degree of hearing loss.
- Only 1 in 5 people who would benefit from a hearing aid actually uses one
- “An estimated 50 million Americans experience tinnitus (ringing in the ears); 90 percent of those also have hearing loss.”
