Hearing loss is a silent problem that often goes untreated for years. Recent studies have shown that adults with untreated hearing loss have significantly higher rates for psychosocial disorders such as depression and anxiety, are at higher risk of developing dementia, and incur higher medical bills compared to those without hearing loss.

Today’s hearing solutions include removable and implantable hearing aids such as advanced digital hearing aids and cochlear implants for those with severe hearing loss, respectively. A wide range of assistive listening devices (ALDs) are also available for a variety of situations and listening environments.

Patient expectations of hearing solutions vary depending on age, hearing loss magnitude and first-time use, and hearing aid manufacturers are responding to patient demands and competitive pressures with ever-improving designs. However, challenges remain, especially in striking a balance between increased functionality and long battery life.
