Hearing devices make life better for millions of people – but they seem to lack the “cool” factor often associated with glasses. Wearing glasses can make you look smarter; wearing sunglasses can make you look cool. So why do people look down on hearing devices?
At Hearing Works, we feel it’s high time that hearing devices were seen in the same way – or should that be heard in the same way? Just like glasses, hearing devices correct a deficiency in your natural abilities. They’re also very common among people of all ages.
Some people are born with impaired hearing, while many young adults are risking permanent hearing damage by using headphones with the volume turned up to 11, and spending time in noisy bars and clubs (except during lockdown, of course).
Of course, some headphones (like Beats by Dr Dre and Apple AirPods) have become must-have fashion statements, every bit as cool as designer sunglasses. In part, this is due to amazing advances in audio technology â€“ think noise cancelling, clarity and superb, lifelike sound.
