The loss from impaired hearing is much greater than people think.
When you miss out on conversations, it can mean lost work, friendships, family connections — a long list of missed opportunities.
A hearing aid can help restore the sounds you’re missing and rebuild your quality of life.
Let’s take a moment for a quick science lesson.
Hearing is actually an energy transfer. Sound is the kind of energy created by things when they move.
For example, the skin of a drum moves, sending the sound waves into your ear. And when it gets there, your ear gathers up the energy. That’s why our ears are shaped the way they are — it’s the molding that helps collect sound waves.
Next, those vibrations head into the ear, agitating the cilia. Those are little hairs deep inside our ear that signal our brain to sounds. And when those hairs stop standing tall, that’s when hearing loss sets in.
A lot of things can wear out cilia. For most of us, it’s simply age. Cilia work pretty good for quite a few decades before they start to wear out, but nothing lasts forever.
Some things we do in our day-to-day life can wear them down quicker. Listening to loud music all the time can lead to earlier hearing loss because the cilia aren’t as strong.
The fact is at some point, everyone’s cilia stop working at full capacity. For many of us, that’s when a hearing aid comes in handy.
The Hearing Evaluation
Managing your hearing health begins with a hearing evaluation and consultation. Watch the video below to see what to expect from a consultation with Kabel Hearing.
The hearing evaluation allows the specialist to get a precise measurment of your hearing loss. Those measurements ensure you get the latest technology to custom program your hearing aids for your exact hearing needs.
The result is pheomenal hearing, and more importantly, phenomenal understanding.
