Here's an interesting statistic about hearing loss and treatment:

"While the vast majority of Americans (95%) with hearing loss could be successfully treated with hearing aids, only one in five currently use them."

Did you know that "1 in 5 Americans have hearing loss in at least one ear.  This is 48 million people and far exceeds previous hearing care industry estimates of approximately 25 million."

Should I wear hearing aids on airplanes?

The following information can help you decide:

The noise inside an aircraft, particularly if you are seated toward the rear, can be quite loud. Hearing instruments may be most comfortable if turned down, or off, in this situation.
 
Changes in air pressure, especially when the plane is taking off or landing, can cause discomfort until your ears "pop". This equalizes the pressure behind the eardrum with the outside air pressure. Usually, wearing your hearing aid will not affect this process. However, if you have a cold or sinus problems, these pressure changes can be harder to equalize and the discomfort may last longer.

Today’s wireless hearing aids allow you to hear your TV or stereo as though you have a stereo headset on even with no sound coming from your TV. Additionally, you can also set your hearing aid so others can hear TV normally while you hear it at your preferred volume. Technology is amazing!
