A recent study by the Journals of Gerontology has reported that nearly two out of every three people will suffer from significant hearing loss by the time they’re 70. With 78 million baby boomers turning 66 this year, countless individuals will need to seek help. Stefanie Weiss, a Washington Post reporter, proposes that we shouldn’t push our loved ones to get their hearing tested, but we should instead attack the stigmas of outdated hearing aid options by finding a way to make hearing technology cool.

“We don’t need to nod and smile, pretending to hear. And we don’t need to avoid wearing hearing aids. Not when everyone under 40 is wearing ear buds, headphones and Bluetooth devices clipped to their ears,” Weiss said. “Old hearing aids amplified sounds — all sounds, even the ones in the background and the ones you heard just fine. But today’s hearing aids are programmed to match your unique hearing loss, providing amplification in the exact way you need it (turning up just the higher tones, for instance), while cutting down on distracting background noise.”
