The average person waits nearly seven years from the onset of hearing loss until they seek help.
Not only does this delay enjoyment of better hearing, but it also exposes them to a variety of health risks and challenges in their everyday lives. Nearly 48 million people are affected by hearing loss in the U.S. today. People are exposed to dangerous noise levels at work or during leisure activities. In fact, 30 million U.S. workers are exposed to hazardous noise levels. With 60 percent of the people with hearing loss either in the work force or in educational settings they need amplification so they can actively participate in the workplace.
