Hearing Aid Reviews: What Real People Say About Their Hearing Aid

Hearing aids help people reconnect with their families, friends, and the world around them, but often people with hearing loss hold back from seeking treatment. Reasons are varied, but the average person waits ten years before correcting hearing loss. This wasted time is stressful for spouse and family, requiring exhaustive interactions and can lead to other complications like depression and brain atrophy. It is difficult for a person with mild to moderate hearing loss to imagine the improvement in their lives a hearing aid can bring. But as numerous people have written to tell People Hearing Better, hearing aids can change your life for the better.


People with untreated hearing loss tend to be more withdrawn, depressed, and suffer more incidents of insomnia than those who treat their hearing loss. When the ability to communicate and hear the world around them is returned, many times a sense of joy and openness to the world is also returned. Here are just a few things hearing aid users have written to tell us about their hearing aids:

"Hearing again changed my life, in multiple ways. I didn’t realize that I wasn’t participating in my own life because I couldn’t hear what was going on around me... my life was becoming smaller and smaller as I unknowingly pulled away especially in social situations. I was 38 when I got my hearing aids, too young to have this type of hearing loss, but old enough to realize that I needed them!" Jennifer Yeaton on her first hearing aids.

"Treating my hearing loss and adjusting to hearing aids took some time to get used to, but hearing again was an amazing gift. Life quickly opened up around me. Things I had not realized I'd been cut off from were revealed to me. It's amazing how much you can accept silence without recognizing that that silence hides what you are missing." Anita Chambers

"I can now honestly say that the best part of marriage – communication – is restored in my life, and I am very glad to have my new hearing aids, a new home, and a wonderful husband, at 71 years of age." Phyllis G. Pisa

"I walked to the parking lot feeling as if I had awoken from a long muffled dream." David Hill after having his first hearing aids put on.

"At 70 years old I finally feel like a grownup. I don't have to ask anyone to repeat things." Carmen Audas after her daughter convinced her to seek help for her hearing loss.

"The doctor recommended an in-the-canal type of hearing aid for my mom. I could tell by her face the minute it was fitted on her that she could hear the low-level conversation in the room. I don't know how to describe the look, but it was definitely a mixture of astonishment and joy." Linda Zacks on her mother's new hearing aids.

"I cannot tell you how grateful I feel for the changes those hearing aides have made in my life. I can be a whole person, a sharing person. I feel as if I've discovered hearing fitness. I am back in the world!Ilene, New York, New York
