AXIL understands how much hearing aids cost for the consumer, and we try our very best to give you a variety of options to choose from. First off let’s talk about what hearing aids are and how they’ve developed over the past century, as well as what AXIL can do for you to improve your quality of life.
Hearing Aids: How far have they come?
Hearing is something that many take for granted, yet it is something we use daily without even realizing it. Over the years, hearing aids have gone from a obnoxious sized device to one that basically disappears in the ear canal depending on the model. In the early 1800’s there was something called an “ear trumpet” that basically looked like the bottom part of a saxophone you put in your ear. Over the years they got smaller and more portable. Obviously once innovators developed a way to harness electricity inside of it, the game was changed forever. The mid-20th century refined it even more until in the 1980’s the idea of a microprocessor was integrated into it. Now people have the ability to have a small and compact device that gives them instant feedback from the sound without any kind of delay. It’s now gotten to a point. It truly changed the way that people use hearing aids in modern times.
The reality of it, is that the best hearing aid is what’s going to be comfortable to you and what fits in your price point. Without a doubt the most protection and comfort will come from out custom in-ear electronic plugs that have adjustable modes and volume. They are also extremely small and usually hidden from folks passing by or when out to dinner with friends.
