Top 8 Reasons You Don’t Need Hearing Aids
Published on Feb 25, 2019
1. “I’m too young for hearing aids.”
For many people, hearing aids symbolize one thing—old age. Improving your hearing has taken on an almost mythical representation of all things over-the-hill, yet no one blinks twice at the thought of improving their eyesight with glasses. It goes without saying that you wouldn’t walk around blindly, but we hear stories every day of people swearing that they don’t need hearing aids.
According to the Hearing Loss Association of America, hearing loss is the third most common physical condition in adults, and getting a hearing aids can benefit around 28.8 million American of all ages. Wearing a hearing aid is nothing to be ashamed of if it helps you live your life to the fullest!
Take a second to think about how many times you’ve tried having a conversation with a person who has hearing loss. Repeating yourself over and over. Shouting to get anything across. Saying “nevermind” and ending the conversation before it even begins. It happens every day for some of us.
Now, think about how many times you’ve noticed that someone is wearing a hearing aid. It’s pretty amazing that 1 out of every 32 Americans wear hearing aids, yet we rarely notice them. The reality is no one looks at the back of your ear, but everyone notices when they can’t communicate with you. If don’t want people to think you’re “old”, you need to participate in the conversation.
2. “I don’t need hearing aids. I’m getting by just fine.”
We hear this a lot. “Maybe next year I’ll need them, but for now I’m getting by just fine.”
Did you know on average it takes people seven years after they accept their hearing loss to do something about it? Seven years. That’s seven years of missing out on conversations and weakening relationships.
It can be hard to admit you have a problem, and it’s even harder to make a change, even if there’s a simple solution. With time, you get accustomed to missing words here and there, asking people to repeat themselves, and not taking a part in the conversation. It’s not until after you put on a pair of hearing aids that you start to realize how much of your life you were missing out on.
3. “I don’t have time to buy hearing aids right now.”
Hearing is complicated. Buying a hearing aid can seem even more complicated. How are you supposed to know how many bands or channels are the right amount? How can you possibly squeeze in a bunch of trips to the audiologist? The choices and time commitment can be overwhelming, which is why many people default to waiting a week… month… year…
Here’s the thing—many audiologists have a financial benefit to selling you on the most expensive hearing aid option and bundling adjustment appointments to drive up the prices even more.
If you don’t have time to sit through a sales pitch on why you need to spend thousands of dollars for one hearing aid, MDHearingAid will ship you a pair of real, FDA-registered hearing aids for you to try for 45 days, completely risk-free. If you aren’t satisfied for any reason, you have a 100% money back guarantee.
4. “Hearing is too important to not see a doctor.”
Actually, we couldn’t agree more!
Hearing loss is a medical condition, and it’s important to confirm and know the extent of your hearing loss. If you suspect you have hearing loss, you should go to an audiologist. They can test your hearing in person. Once you have hearing tested by a professional, you will be better informed about what you need.
That said, there are new alternatives to buying hearing aids than buying from the traditional clinics—ones that cost thousands less.
The main difference between us and the clinic? Our hearing aids are one-size-fits-most. That means all of our hearing aids are designed for mild to moderately-severe hearing loss in order to assist the vast majority of people who need hearing aids.
With MDHearingAid, you only pay for the features you need, and post-sale service isn’t lumped into the cost—it’s free and ongoing.
5. “What if my hearing aid breaks?”
Everyone knows someone who has an expensive, audiologist-sold hearing aid that constantly sits in their drawer “broken.” They don’t know what’s wrong with it and they definitely don’t have time to bother getting it fixed.
A hearing aid isn’t worth anything if you never wear it. That’s why MDHearingAid has an amazing technical support team based here in the USA. These dedicated technicians are the heart and soul of MDHearingAid and assist hundreds of customers each day, from giving advice on how to get the most out of their hearing aids to troubleshooting to providing simple cleaning and maintenance instructions.
With all of our hearing aids, technical support is completely free for the life of the hearing aid. If you need hearing aid help, we’ll be here.
6. “What if MDHearingAid isn’t around in 10 years?”
We’ve all heard of online companies that pop-up overnight with unbelievable promises and disappear twice as fast. What good is a 100% satisfaction guarantee if the company isn’t there to fulfill it?
MDHearingAid isn’t some fly-by-night operation. We were founded over a decade ago by a doctor who knew there had to be a better way to address hearing loss and then spent years developing a quality product. Since then, we’ve grown slowly with customer service as our focus, keeping an A+ BBB rating, and helping over 500,000 people along the way.
We have no plans to slow down any time soon.
7. “Hearing aids are too expensive!”
Most US insurance plans don’t cover hearing aids. That unfortunate fact means you will likely have to pay out of pocket to improve your hearing. When you factor in the unbelievably high average prices at traditional hearing clinics (nearly $5,000 for a pair!), only the extremely wealthy used to comfortably buy hearing aids without going into debt.
We believe price shouldn’t prevent you from hearing better. Because we sell directly to customers and have taken out the middleman, we’re able to make our hearing aids as affordable as possible. With MDHearingAid, you aren’t paying for an expensive storefront or brand name. Just high-quality hearing technology delivered right to your door.
We even offer 12-month financing through Affirm to make the devices even easier to fit in your budget.
8. “I’ll get stuck with a hearing aid that doesn’t work for me.”
Here’s the deal. No hearing aid is going to work for everyone and it’s not going to give you back the hearing you had when you were 20. Anyone who tells you different is not being honest with you.
Our hearing aids are designed to assist the vast majority of people with hearing loss, but we know there are people whose hearing loss is too severe for our hearing aids. That’s why we encourage potential customers to send us their hearing test results. Our in-house audiologist will review your test and let you know if our hearing aids will work for you (and which one would be the best fit). On top of that, every hearing device we make comes with a 100% money-back guarantee and 45-day risk-free trial.
We want you to hear better, and we won’t be satisfied until you’re living your life to the fullest. Try MDHearingAid today — you have nothing to lose and your whole life to gain.
