With one out of every five individuals in the United States afflicted by some degree of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at least one individual who has some difficulty hearing.
And bearing in mind the strong links amongst healthy hearing and physical, mental, and social well-being, the holiday season is the ideal opportunity to provide an extremely meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are some fantastic gift ideas:
A Year’s Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who genuinely takes pleasure in shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Still, hearing aids will not achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a must have. By providing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you can take away the trouble and expense associated with the task of managing the supply.

Custom-made Ear Protection
Are you shopping for any musicians? Any hunters in the family?
The gift of specialty ear protection could prevent hearing injury and future hearing loss. And contrary to the cheaper foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are specifically engineered to repress detrimental sounds while conserving the essential sounds. This helps prevent the “muffled” sound related to foam earplugs.
Talk to us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids mandate routine upkeep and cleaning to ensure ongoing, maximum performance. And while this can’t be averted, it can be made quite a bit easier.
Here are some gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers use ultraviolet light to safely and comprehensively kill harmful pathogens, including harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers remove excessive moisture and extend the life of the parts of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools feature a magnet for battery removal along with other tools to clean the various parts of a hearing aid. This is the swiss army knife of hearing aid tools.
- Hearing aid storage cases can protect the hearing aids when not in use and can make transport more convenient.
Not sure which accessories you’ll require for a specific hearing aid? Talk to us and we’ll help you find the most suitable products.
Here’s a favorite gift idea, as these products turn a pair of hearing aids into a set of top-quality earphones.
Streamers are devices that will detect an audio signal—from a TV, computer, or other device—and will deliver the signal directly to the hearing aids for crystal clear sound.
Are you aware that several hearing aid models can be operated with mobile electronic devices like cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a tremendous gift in the first place, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. Using compatible hearing aids, you can discreetly control hearing aid volume and can modify the settings right from the portable device.
This is one feature that, the moment you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Talk to us and we’ll inform you of which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
Last but not least, if you feel like going all out this year, consider giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a pair of digital hearing aids.
Of course, you can’t just go out and purchase a pair of hearing aids. Each person’s hearing loss is unique and will require a hearing examination, not to mention that each individual will have special preferences with regard to hearing aid style and functionality.
But providing a gift card to cover the expense could encourage someone to at long last get the hearing aids they know will ultimately contribute to a greater all-around quality of life.
And how many gifts can accomplish that?
