Our customers tell us all the time that bird song is a sound they have missed since gradually losing their hearing and that hearing aids have brought it back into their lives. Bird watching is a favorite activity for many of them – and isn’t bird watching so much richer when it includes the sounds of the birds too?
If you’re missing the sounds of birds, it’s time for a hearing assessment. High-frequency hearing loss is the most common type of hearing loss associated with both age and loud noise exposure, so there’s nothing to be ashamed about! In fact, about half of Americans over age 65 have some degree of hearing loss, much of it at high frequencies.
The licensed hearing care providers at HearingLife are ready to help you start hearing better. Once you have a hearing assessment, they’ll discuss your lifestyle and hobbies and help you choose the hearing aid that best fits your needs.
Hearing aids can help you identify various bird songs, as well as the direction they are coming from. You can also ask for a birding program for your hearing aids – your hearing care professional can set it up for you to switch on via the app on your phone when you’re out bird watching.
