Guess Who Wears A Hearing Aid?

Posted on March 1, 2010. Filed under: 1, hearing health | Tags: , , , , |

Many people are tentative about hearing aid use, mainly because they are afraid of the way it looks, and what others may think because they think that noone else wears them (Case in point: New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who after causing a minor media uproar after being spotted wearing one, has not been seen wearing a hearing aid since). However, popular belief is actually contrary to the truth, as many celebrities and public figures use hearing aid technology- not only in the denouement, but also discreetly during the apex of their careers. A short list follows.

Yes, but they wear the tiny, in the ear aids. That is kind of like trying to hide they have a hearing impairment…

Judging by the celebrities that were presented here, I believe that is the exact point the author is trying to make. Because many “boomers” shy away from wearing hearing aids because they think it will make them “look old” or won’t actually enhance their lifestyle, the writer here is implying that they can live a completely normal life again with hearing aids- and no one has to know that they’re wearing one.

That was an amazing one.. Keep it up.

Thank you for the response, Im glad you enjoyed it. Check out the new research on Omega 3.
