Why should I get a hearing aid?
Ultimately, the choice to get a hearing aid is up to you. We know that there are concerns about things like financials and aesthetics. Ultimately, you know what’s best for yourself. With that being said, your health and quality of life can greatly benefit from a hearing aid if you start to notice signs of hearing loss.
Some of the common problems that result from a loss of hearing include headaches, muscle tension, impaired memory on the physical side. Mentally, issues like depression, fatigue, and social withdrawal are also possible.
How do I know if I need a hearing aid?
Usually, it’s not too hard to tell if you need a hearing aid. If you’re noticing issues that are affecting your daily life—such as conversations are starting to sound like mumbles or you need to blast the TV volume on 65 so you can hear—you likely have a hearing issue.

How does hearing loss happen?
There are several reasons why hearing loss may occur, and there are numerous additional risk factors that may speed up the process. Damage to the inner ear from aging and exposure to loud noise may cause wear and tear on the hairs or nerve cells in the cochlea. This part of the ear sends sound signals to the brain. Gradual buildup of ear wax, ear infections, tumors, and ruptured eardrums may also cause hearing loss. Build-up of pressure, infection, or even poking your eardrum with an object can cause your eardrum to rupture and affect your hearing.
Factors that may damage or lead to loss of the hairs and nerve cells in your inner ear include:
- Degeneration of inner ear structures over time
- Exposure to loud noises
- Your genetic makeup
- Occupational noises
- Recreational noises (such as firearms, load music, motorcycling, etc.)
- Certain medications (such as Viagra, fentamicin, and certain chemotherapy drugs) –
- Certain illnesses (such as meningitis)
How long do hearing aids last?
With good care, your hearing aid can last anywhere from 3 to 7 years! Proper care includes steps like cleaning, proper storage, changing filters and wax guards, period checkups, and more.

Should I see a doctor for my hearing loss?
It depends. Not every case will require a doctor, but there definitely instances where you should seek medical help as soon as possible. If you have a sudden loss of hearing, you should see a doctor right away. This is especially important if it happens in one ear, as it may be a sign of a serious issue such as sudden sensorineural hearing loss
You should also talk to your doctor if difficulty hearing is interfering with your daily life. Age-related hearing loss occurs gradually, so you may not notice it at first. The sooner you get help, the better.
How much do hearing aids cost?
Let’s face it, cost is a huge barrier for many people with hearing issues. And there’s no way around it, but hearing aids can be expensive with a price range of anywhere from $1,000-$4,000. How much your hearing aid will cost ultimately depends on a number of factors, such as the type, the design, any additional features, and more.

Will I need to get two hearing aids?
When you lose your hearing, it’s very likely you’ll end up losing in both ears. That’s one reason to get two hearing aids. Not only that, but your overall hearing and sound localization will likely be better with two hearing aids (even if you’re in a noisy area). This is why Injoy and most of our virtual care competitors only sell hearing aids in pairs.
