Get Amp'ed for Better Hearing
Posted by Hearing Northwest on March 09, 2012
Not everyone is ready for a hearing aid - we understand that. On average, a person will wait 5 to 7 years before making a hearing aid purchase after initially recognizing hearing loss symptoms. Many get by with various mechanisms such as lip reading or standing on a certain side to favor a better hearing ear before getting the benefit of a hearing aid. Factors such as cost, maintenance and the stigma of wearing aid hearing aid commonly perpetuate this delay in purchasing.
To help those who are not ready to make the decision to purchase a hearing aid, a new product is available that helps satisfy many of those concerns. This product is called AMP and is really 'the hearing aid for people who aren’t ready to wear a hearing aid'. What makes AMP a great option as a ‘starter hearing aid’ is that it is inexpensive, invisible* when worn and simple to use. AMP’s small size design makes it comfortable to wear and easy to remove. Also the price is easy on the pocketbook. At $750 per hearing aid, those in need but not ready to make a major purchase can get amplification assistance and avoid worsening struggles with hearing loss in their lives.
While we always say that hearing is priceless, we understand that hearing aids can be a considerable investment. Even though the AMP is not our best performing hearing aid, we do recommend it for those looking for hearing assistance as opposed to none at all.
