Better Health Through Better Hearing, Hearing & Overall Wellness https://buff.ly/2L6SYtz

If you have a pain in your body, you know to go to the doctor. A toothache? Schedule a visit with the dentist. Worsening vision? Time to see the eye doctor. But what do you do if you think you’re losing your hearing? Unfortunately, most people who experience hearing loss decide to live with it rather than seek treatment by visiting a hearing care professional and getting hearing aids.

A recent US Hearing Aid Prices Survey is Interesting Reading https://buff.ly/2lYqWBL

Our friends at Hearing Tracker just published an article on a hearing aid prices survey they undertook with Katherine Bouton (the author of Living Better With Hearing Loss) and the HLAA (Hearing Loss Association of America). The survey results were interesting for many reasons, the people surveyed were predominantly experienced users who knew what they were about so the level of information given was pretty high. I just want to cover a few of the details here, you should go along to the original article for more in-depth breakdowns.

Why You Should Bring A Family Member To Your Hearing Test https://buff.ly/2lMGIj7

I had an interesting experience yesterday that brought home the reason why we always ask for a family member to attend a hearing test. The Patient scored themselves very lowly on their hearing handicap form, while the family member scored them rather highly according to their perception of what was going on. When I began to discuss this with them, it was obvious that there was a large disparity between how good the Patient thought their hearing was and what everyone else thought. The reason why is relatively simple and it isn't the most obvious one of pure denial, there is a bit more going on than that. Let's talk about why.

Oticon announces the introduction of Opn custom hearing aids https://buff.ly/2tIfz4k
Finally, Another Hearing Aid Brand With Made For iPhone Custom Hearing Aids
I have been speaking at some events for Oticon this week, if you have been trying to email me I apologise, email has been spotty at best. Anyway, back to Oticon, during the conferences they announced that they are going to launch the Opn customs in quarter four this year and the majority of them will be direct streaming (Made For iPhone). They will be only the second hearing aid brand with Made For iPhone custom hearing aids.

What's Happening in Rechargeable Hearing Aids? https://buff.ly/2JYnstg

Modern rechargeable hearing devices have really taken off in popularity. Every one of the big six hearing aid brands now offers at least one style of rechargeable solution. Phonak has the most extensive range of rechargeable hearing aids with multiple device types aimed at multiple wearer categories. Up to now, most of the manufacturers went with ZPower systems as they offered the shortest lead time to market. In essence, most ZPower solutions are aftermarket add-ons. That isn't to say there is anything wrong with them, there are pros and cons to all rechargeable hearing aid systems. However, if the rumours are true, it seems that the situation may be changing. #hearingaids

My experiences with the Be-Hear Bluetooth Headset https://buff.ly/2yqsygC
Not There Yet, But Will be a Killer Device
I have been recently playing with the Beta test version of the Be-Hear Bluetooth Headset. A beta version is a version of a product that is close to release, you would expect some bugs in the system because that is the nature of Beta Testing. The Be-Hear has some bugs, but when they iron them out, I think they will be an amazing piece of kit for people with hearing loss who aren't ready to move forward to hearing aids. Let's talk about the Be-Hear.
