Your hearing health matters

"When you lose your sight, you lose touch with things. When you lose your hearing, you lose touch with people."


Helen Adams Keller

That’s why HearingLife focuses on providing outstanding hearing wellness care. It's simple. The nuance of sound matters to your life.

Take the next step to hearing well

One in five adults have hearing loss in the United States.

At least according to the Hearing Loss Association of America.1

In fact, hearing loss is the third most prevalent health condition here and 48 million Americans report hearing loss.2 Hearing loss can lead to depression, cognitive decline and dementia.2 That’s why it’s important to address hearing loss early.

"Listening in Stereo" gives life to words and music

  • More than just for enjoying music, you need input from both ears to fully engage the brain, use spacial awareness and identify sounds correctly.
  • We help you understand the importance of hearing well in both ears and how to achieve excellent hearing "in stereo." This important resource provides your brain context to the sounds you hear and lets you enjoy the nuances of voices, tones and ambient sounds that add richness to the soundscape.

The Impacts of Hearing Loss

Your mental sharpness suffers when you cannot follow conversations around you. Your brain needs activity to activate aural stimulation. Over time, hearing loss can reduce the brain’s ability to process sound and recognize speech. Just like many other parts of the body, the brain needs stimuli to keep in practice. Research shows that difficulties with memory is linked to hearing loss.

In addition to these challenges, scientists have found many negative consequences of hearing loss. People with untreated hearing loss have higher unemployment rates, compared to the general population. But with treatment, you can improve relationships with your loved ones, take an active part in the workplace and be confident that you are not “missing anything.” Once you get used to them, you will find wearing hearing aids is as easy and comfortable as wearing glasses.

Talking with friends or colleagues should be fun, not taxing. When you struggle to hear, it is harder to communicate, which often leads to social isolation. Hearing well makes it easier to communicate with friends, loved ones and colleagues. It also ensures that you have the ability to engage fully in the community.

Research consistently demonstrates the considerable effects that hearing loss has on social, psychological and cognitive performance. Over time, reduced aural stimulation can actually impair the brain’s ability to process sound and recognize speech. When you can’t hear what’s going on around you, your mental sharpness suffers. Hearing loss can lead to isolation, depression, cognitive decline and dementia. This is why its important to begin treatment as early as possible.3

  • Do you not know where sounds are coming from?
