Hearing loss is insidious, like the proverbial “boiling a frog,” where the losses are generally very slight, and over a long period of time. Hearing loss is cumulative, and one day, we wake up and realize that other people hear what we can’t.
Maybe it’s just a little annoying, to us. But it’s a lot annoying to others; and in the air, it can be downright dangerous. No one who needs glasses would willingly leave home without them, but people who need hearing help go for years, missing out on, and misconstruing, all sorts of communication.
Hearing technology has improved exponentially over the past decade or so, since custom-tuned multi-band digital devices have proliferated. Light and almost invisible in the ear canal, these digital hearing devices (no one calls them “hearing aids” any more) can boost sound in the frequency bands where the ear is lacking, or where the hearing has been damaged.
Better yet, the new “Tactical” devices also operate as effective hearing protectors. When a too-loud sound is detected, a tactical hearing device shuts down, blocking rather than amplifying the sound – it acts like a custom-fit earplug, to save your hearing!
Learn about what good hearing can be, and learn how much prices have come down, since you first heard about multi-band digital devices. And learn how Tactical Hearing can fit you with comfortable, effective hearing enhancement that also preserves your hearing, through its active attenuation of too-loud noises, be they from shooting, race car exhaust… or flying.
You can get fitted and tested right there at many airshows, starting with Sebring’s Sport Aviation Expo, January 16-19.
