Disposable Hearing Aids
One of the reasons many people are hesitant to seek help with their hearing is confusion over how to find the right kind of hearing aid and the bother of learning to use it. One solution that has helped many who really do not need an elaborate hearing solution is to go with a disposable unit that is inexpensive, easy to get and easy to replace.
To know what kind of disposable unit you will need for your hearing, you will still need a prescription and a hearing test so the extent and cause of your hearing loss can be determined. This is always a good idea because if the cause of your hearing loss is something serious, you want to know about that. But since the majority of hearing loss is minor and routine results of aging, the disposable route is a good one for you once you have determined how much help you need.
Like "store bought" glasses, once you have your prescription, you should be able to buy a new disposable hearing device pretty much like you buy milk and eggs. That is one of the advantage is this approach because if the unit you are using fails, the batteries run down or you lose it, it is not a disaster. Your hearing aid virtually becomes a commodity item to be changed like a light bulb. It is just that easy.
If you get maximum use out of one purchase of a disposal hearing unit, you should be able to get as much as a month to a month and a half out of one unit. You might be tempted to buy your next one in advance but since you do not change the battery in a disposable unit, it might be best to wait until you are about a week out from when the one you have stops working. But if you have come to depend on the improved hearing you are getting from these convenient and affordable hearing aids, being prepared is a good idea.
Many times a disposable unit is a perfect solution for older people or for you if you want to eliminate the fuss and cleaning associated with using a hearing device that you have to take care of. For one thing, because hearing aids are very small, buying, storing and changing the batteries is a huge inconvenience. People with poor hearing or arthritis have trouble swapping the batteries out and the cost of batteries alone almost justify just going with a replaceable hearing aid.
It is often difficult to keep an old style hearing aid clean. By going the disposable route, when your hearing aid gets soiled with earwax or other grime, you don’t have to clean it, just throw it out and buy a clean one. This is actually more sanitary too because if you want to use a clean unit when it comes to putting something in your ears every day.
Disposable units are not for everyone. But they have become a huge success on the market because they are a great alternative for a big part of the hearing impaired community because they are convenient and affordable and they can do so much to improve your quality of life.
