So I ordered two ears. Technology has improved vastly during the last two years. Now hearing devices have tiny computers in them. Some are adjusted by hand, others by remote control, or automatically. I chose a type that adjusts automatically for small groups, crowds, and telephone conversations.
The McAfee kit sells for $69.00 plus shipping. Car outdoor travel and sports earpiece winter survival kits are also available. Reading about these kits and got me thinking and I realized my emergency evacuation kit needed some extras.
In another venue, when people are talking and we really can't make out the words through sound, we read lips; so the audiologist said. I didn't believe her hearing aid because I didn't remember consciously reading lips. I had my wife mouth a short sentence and I couldn't believe it; I understood it!
When using power lawn mowers and weed eaters use eye safety goggles and hearing aids. These engines are a lot louder than people think. Military members who are assigned to mow are required to wear hearing protection even though they use the same lawn mowers as homeowners. Perhaps they know something the manufacturers don't tell the public.
A good rule of thumb to remember: if the package says it's meant to kill something- bugs or plants, wear protection. If it's meant to fertilize plants, wear protection. You're not a plant.
Thanks to hearing health practices. They educate and treat people with hearing problems. Educate the masses on how to prevent hearing loss. It is ideal though to search for an establishment that is highly acclaimed to ensure patient satisfaction and prevention from future problems. There are many clinics or audiologists found on the website, but it is wise to know the company and the background first.
