Wondering If You Need New Hearing Aids?

Friday, August 5, 2016 5:40:41 PM Australia/Melbourne

Think about a belonging which means a lot to you. It can be anything, as long as it’s a tangible object. Close your eyes and think about it really hard. Concentrate. Got it in mind? Good.


It doesn’t matter how much it cost. It might have even been a gift. Regardless, do you remember how much you loved and adored it when it was brand new. You took the best care of it, used it carefully, ensured that it was never left in precarious circumstances. And why did you do that? We’re guessing it’s because you wanted its shelf life to last as long as possible.


As much as we wish this wasn’t the case, nothing lasts forever. Sooner or later, almost everything needs to be replaced. The brain is a discounting mechanism after all. What was once shiny, new and well cared for, is all-too-soon just something else laying around your house or in the back of your closet. And unfortunately, hearing aids are included in this mix.


Wondering If You Need New Hearing Aids?That’s not to say that hearing aids have been relegated to the far corners of your storage chest. At least we hope that’s not the case, because hearing might be a little difficult then. But hearing aids do need to be replaced, and here are several reasons why:


New insurance. Insurance is an ever-evolving industry, with benefits changing every two to six years. Whether you have a new employer, a new plan, or a growing plan, make sure that you’re receiving everything you’re paying for.


Technology updates. Think about cell phones. Would you be caught dead using the same cell phone today that was on trend twenty years ago? You wouldn’t be able to even if you wanted. Technology is constantly changing, improving to make life easier for you. With the constant introduction of new hearing technologies, you’ll want to make sure that your hearing aids are compatible so that you can take advantage of the benefits.


A change in lifestyle. This can swing both ways. Maybe you’ve been employed by a particularly noisy workplace for the last twenty years and now you’re getting to enjoy a bit of a slower pace. If this is the case, your hearing aids are probably too highly tuned, too susceptible to picking up every piece of environmental noise. On the other hand, maybe you’re picking up a role in a profession where you’ll be surrounded by more background and environment noise. If this is the case, you’ll want hearing aids which can tackle this challenge and keep your ears as safe as possible.


Each of these reasons has something in common- the best interests of your ears. This is something that Hearlink takes extremely seriously. We strongly recommend keeping an eye (or an ear) on the shelf life of your hearing aids. If you feel that they’re not performing as well as they should be, feel free to reach out to your Hearlink team. We’re passionate about ensuring you’re happy and healthy.
