Did you know that hearing loss and tinnitus can affect anyone regardless of age? When we think of hearing loss and hearing aids, we don’t typically think of the younger generations. Yet, most hearing loss is gradual and can begin at a much younger age than many of us would imagine. External factors and risky habits, such as listening to loud music with earbuds and using mowers and other loud tools, are large contributors to hearing loss. Many kids and teens today are exhibiting potential signs of hearing loss including ringing, roaring, buzzing and pain. Many people feel that they will be looked at as feeble or old if they wear a hearing aid when in fact, the average age at which owners got their first hearing has decreased.
