In commercial audiology, the typical hearing aid consultation has two needs, a clinical need and a commercial need. Each need is as important as the other, while strong clinical efficacy is important, without strong commercial overtones the objectives of the business are not met.

The convergence of different technologies and the innovation in function that seems to be coming is moving hearing aids beyond their traditional medical device role and towards lifestyle devices. I think that this will continue to ensure earlier adoption and with that earlier adoption comes opportunity.

Driving a Successful Consumer Focused Hearing Aid Site
A Proof of Concept
Late in 2016, myself and Steve decided that we were going to drive one of our sites as a proof of concept for our ideas, our strategies and for the wider profession. We have always run a site called Hearing Aid Know, which offers independent hearing aid advice for consumers. We had been neglecting the site for some time and we decided that it was about time that we took it seriously again.

I think the Kuduwave is an outstanding piece of kit, I was really excited when I got my hands on it and set it up. Using it has not abated that excitement and wonder at what it delivers. If you are looking for an Audiometer that will allow you test in sub-par sound environments, this is the one for you. However, as you become familiar with the device and its easy usability, it may just end up as your go-to Audiometer

Let's talk about Bluetooth hearing aids. Below you can find a detailed overview of all of the Made For iPhone hearing aids from the big six hearing aid brands. In fact it is four right now, but the rest will soon follow. First of all we need to clear up some misconceptions. Generally, when people are talking about Bluetooth hearing aids they are in fact talking about Made For iPhone hearing aid technology (MFI). Made For iPhone hearing aids were first introduced by GN Resound with their LiNX platform a couple of years ago. They were quickly followed by Starkey, with their Halo Made For iPhone hearing aids.

I read a good article today by Geoffrey A. Fowler on the Wall Street Journal. He was talking about modern TVs and their rubbish audio. In essence he said that if you can't hear the TV, the fault may not be your ears, it could be a combination of bad speakers and bad sound balancing on TV shows. He also made some suggestions for making the Audio better which included some after market add ons. It got me thinking though, sometimes even if your hearing is at fault, it might not be time for hearing aids, let me explain.

Study in US and Canada Shows a 50% reduction in the incidence of Chemotherapy related hearing loss
Results of a randomized, controlled, phase 3 study, called ACCL0431, have been published in the early online edition of Lancet Oncology recently. Investigators from Children's Hospital Los Angeles and 37 other Children's Oncology Group hospitals in the U.S. and Canada have discovered that sodium thiosulfate reduces cisplatin-induced hearing loss in children and adolescents with cancer by close to 50%.

Charge your aids in three hours? How about thirty seconds with no plug?
No electricity, no charging, no batteries, just place the hearing aid in a specially designed docking station, wait 30 seconds while it fills with methanol and your hearing aid will have enough energy for 72 hours of use.
