People assume that having hearing loss is kind of like when you can't hear the volume on your television. You just need to turn the dial up. But often someone with hearing loss can hear some sounds really well, but others not so much. So it's more like when you're listening to an old movie and turn up the dial and then suddenly the sound track switches and it's too loud and you startle and quick turn down the dial. This misunderstanding about hearing loss is why the government has issued a warning to let consumers know that products that merely turn the sound up, what's called a personal sound amplification product (PSAP), aren't a treatment for hearing loss.
