In the UK today, around 40 per cent of people over the age of 50 have some form of hearing loss(1). However, according to a study published in the International Journal of Audiology(2), a surprising number of people choose not to wear hearing aids as they feel uncomfortable and self-conscious wearing them.

 

The self-consciousness surrounding hearing loss and wearing a hearing aids is quite normal as many people view having to wear a hearing aid as a sign of getting old. People can struggle with hearing loss for some time before realising that it can get in the way of a good quality of life, good health, and even personal safety. Older hearing aids were bulky and uncomfortable, it used to be hard to wear a hearing aid without feeling like it changed the way people viewed you.

 

Today there is good news for self-conscious hearing aid wearers, like many other electronics hearing aids have been made more compact as technology has improved. They have become smaller and now they are virtually invisible giving the wearer a significant boost of self-confidence.
