Hearing Aids Online:
Stats on Hearing Loss
Like most things in life, as we get older, certain abilities begin to decline in their performance. Our hearing is not excluded from this. John Hopkins Cochlear Center for Hearing and Public Health has found that 54.6% of people age 70-79 have hearing loss. That percentage increases as we get older.
So basically, most people, at some point in their life, will need hearing aids.
What isn’t an issue though, is finding hearing aids. It is easier than ever now. You can buy hearing aids online. Pretty spectacular, huh?
I am here for you to aid in making this process go as smooth as butter. I will inform you on why to buy hearing aids online and how Prescription Hearing can help you with this.
Why You Should Buy Hearing Aids Online
I get how buying products online can be somewhat nerve-racking. You always wonder, am I really going to get what is pictured and described here? You don’t have those fears when purchasing from a reliable seller though, let’s say like Prescription Hearing.
There are three main points as for ‘why you should buy hearing aids online,’ so listen up =]
1. Save Money
- Cheaper products
- Transportation expenses
Money is a prime reason for many. Generally, a pair of hearing aids can cost about $5,000. Buying hearing aids online directly lowers these costs.
Save more by not worrying about paying for your gas, a friend’s, a city bus, or an uber.
*An added bonus: not driving to an appointment reduces your carbon footprint. Win: Win!
2. Save Time
- Shop at ANY TIME you want
- No waiting in traffic
- No waiting in offices
Along with saving money by not driving, you’ll also save time. It always seems when we have an appointment, there is traffic. I’m not sure why that is. Maybe the universe just needed a good laugh that day; either way, that is a big waste of time.
Then after waiting in traffic for an hour, you have to wait another hour in the office. They are running slightly behind today but enjoy those uncomfortable seats with boring magazines they have provided.
Online shopping makes all of this disappear. You can shop at any time you want in the comfort of your own home. It doesn’t matter if you are an early riser or a night owl, any time works if it works for you.
3. Less Stress
- No crowded areas
- Disabled? No painful car rides
Crowded areas can be pretty exhausting to deal with (some would say that is empathic behavior). Anyways, whether you have to engage in conversation or are hitting elbows with the stranger next to you – it is no fun at times.
What also is not fun? Pain. It can be a tough commute if you have bad hips, back, knees or other types of pain. Buying hearing aids online you are able to skip all these unnecessary troubles.
It is crucial to buy hearing aids when you start to notice hearing impairment. A study performed found that using hearing aids early on in hearing issues will help to reduce the effect of cognitive decline later in life.
Cognition, simply put, is our mind taking in knowledge and using that for thinking, reasoning, or remembering.

Regulation Law Change Coming in 2020
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a letter in 2018, stating that there will be a new category for over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids. The plan is for consumers to have access to new technologies and the consumers’ protection to be well-balanced.
This letter also states, “The protections include output limits, appropriate labeling, advisements about when to consult with a licensed health care practitioner, and guidance on when a premarket review by FDA would be required.”
