In fact, 80 percent of those who would benefit from hearing aids refuse to wear them and older studies show appearance was a key reason for non-use. 

However, modern hearing aids are much more sophisticated and now offer the ultimate user experience with cutting edge technology tucked into a small, nearly invisible, case. 

In fact, many hearing aid users don’t even know that these modern accessories exist. 

For that reason, here is a look at three of the most exciting modern accessories you can purchase to enhance your hearing experience.

Rechargeable Batteries

Not long ago, hearing aid users had to carry spare batteries everywhere. They were bulky and awkward to change, and hearing aid users were constantly purchasing new batteries.  

Fortunately, hearing aid designers have come up with an accessory to eliminate this need.

You can now purchase rechargeable batteries and a case that plugs into the wall like a phone charger. These are sleek and discrete and can easily slip into your bag unnoticed. 

Rechargeable batteries also reduce recurring battery purchases and ensure you aren't constantly ordering new ones. The most commonly used battery in the U.S. is the brown size 312 zinc battery, and you have to replace them every three to ten days. Therefore, rechargeable batteries are not only more convenient but also more environmentally friendly.

Personal Amplifiers

If you're attending a one-on-one meeting, you'll probably want the hearing aid's volume higher than if you are attending a noisy holiday party. 

There is now a solution that allows you to adjust your hearing aids' volume on the go discreetly.

personal amplifier can be easily connected to your hearing aid with a T-coil and can be used to watch television, talk on the phone, one-on-one conversations, and more.

It is also user friendly with large up and down arrows for effortless dexterity.

Streaming Accessories

While hearing aids can help you better hear in a room full of people, it can still be difficult and awkward to talk to people on the phone. In addition, if you're wearing your hearing aids and watching TV, you may still want the volume higher than those around you, depending on your level of hearing loss.

Fortunately, streaming accessories provide a simple solution to these issues. 

With streaming accessories, hearing aid users can connect their hearing aids directly to the audio source through Bluetooth. For example, if you're on the phone with someone, you can connect your hearing aids to your phone, and it will sound the same as if you were using headphones.

You can also connect them directly to the TV and adjust your volume without disturbing anyone else around you.

Wrapping Up

The hearing aids available to you today are far more advanced than the ones that were available in your parent's generation. Therefore, take some time to research the various enhancement options available and own your hearing aid experience.
