Plan Your Summer Around Fun, Not Your Hearing Loss

Kick Off Your Outdoor Fun With These Helpful Tips

Almost 50 percent of Americans regularly participate in at least one outdoor activity, according to the Outdoor Foundation’s 2014 survey. From biking, hiking, trail running, and camping to boating, fishing, hunting, and bird-watching, the options are endless for outdoor fun. Add a dash of summer, which brings out the adventurer in nearly everyone, and you have a recipe for memories that last a lifetime.

Nearly all hearing loss is treatable, but according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, only 30 percent of adults 70 and older who could benefit from hearing aids have ever used them. The percentage further plummets among adults ages 20 to 69.

Using Hearing Aids, However, Can Make a Big Difference

Hearing technology, with state-of-the-art advances and options to fit individual needs, is your partner in getting the most out of the great outdoors. It can help you hear speech at noisy outdoor games, enjoy specific sounds during a nature hike, tune out background noise while sailing a favorite spot, and connect with friends over a campfire.
