Whether it’s the soft chirping of crickets at night, the gentle lapping of the waves on the shore, or the rhythmic drone of cicadas and the boisterous play of kids splashing about in the backyard pool during the sweltering heat of the day, the sounds of summer are unmistakable. That is unless you can’t hear them.
In fact, missing out on the sounds you once loved, whether other people’s voices or simple things like birds singing, is one of the reasons hearing loss can lead to feelings of isolation and depression.
Summer is often a time for getting together with other people, whether meeting friends at a restaurant, going to a family reunion at a park, or visiting a neighbour’s house for a barbecue. In each of these settings, the ambient noise can make it difficult to hear and follow conversations. However, modern hearing aids use advanced noise suppression technology to let you hear your conversation partners clearly and fully enjoy your summer gatherings.
If you enjoy being outdoors, the experience is enhanced by the sounds of leaves rustling in the breeze, birds chirping, and insects buzzing. If the beach is somewhere you love, you know nothing compares to the relaxing sound of waves crashing at the shore. Whichever outdoor activity you enjoy, hearing aids can pick up these soft sounds, enabling you to enjoy the things you might have assumed you’d never hear again.
While much of the summer is spent outside, the season also has many things to do inside, whether going to the movies on a rainy day or checking out a museum or an art gallery to escape the heat. Hearing aids can help in these settings too. Many public venues broadcast sound over inductive loops, which can be picked up by many hearing aids. As a result, any sounds or public announcements can be transmitted directly to your ears. In addition to movie theatres and museums, other public places like concert halls, stadiums, and arenas are equipped with inductive loops.
Rather than spending another summer missing out on the things you love, you can set up an appointment with Hearing Sense to evaluate your hearing and recommend the best hearing aids. By taking this step now, you’ll have plenty of time this summer to experience all the sounds of the season.
