3 Hearing Aid Myths

The thought of losing one of your senses can be described in one word: scary. But, as we get older, it’s just a fact of life that our hearing is one of those senses (like our vision) that slowly deteriorates. Don’t let the misconceptions and myths about hearing aids and hearing loss scare you away from at least receiving a hearing screening. You may be surprised by what that hearing screening reveals.

Here are 3 myths about hearing loss to keep in mind as you schedule your FREE hearing screening:

Hearing aids will make everything sound too loud.
Hearing aids are much more than just amplifiers. With today’s modern technology, the circuits inside of the hearing aid automatically adjust to the noise input being received. Check out the latest technology inside of the Beltone Legend hearing aid to see how we reduce the feeling that everything will sound too loud.

Hearing aids will make me look "older".
Did you know that most of our Beltone hearing aids are virtually invisible? It would take someone to be specifically looking for a hearing aid to be able to notice that you might be wearing one. Not only does Beltone offer “behind the ear” hearing aids (with many color choices to either match your hair or skin) but we offer “invisible in the canal” style hearing aids, which are so tiny, we’d be surprised that anyone could notice you wearing them.

I can’t afford hearing aids.
Here at Beltone, we offer many different options of payment, including credit options. We also accept various health insurance plans that offer a hearing aid benefit. If you’re not sure if your health insurance offers a hearing aid benefit, it’s best to contact your provider. Also, call your local Beltone office, they will be more than happy to help you navigate your health insurance plan and our various credit options.
