When hearing loss impacts quality of life, it directly affects friends, family and work. Not only is key information missed during conversations, but hearing loss is also tied to memory problems. For children, it bothers them during the developmental stage where learning is essential. Hearing aid products cater to users from all walks of life. The Center for Audiology understands how impactful hearing aids are for all users suffering from hearing loss.
Common everyday sounds have the potential to harm the ears. To prevent further damage to hearing, protection is needed to both suppress and enhance specific sounds. Solutions exist for professionals, hobbyists, athletes and industrial workers.
