The number of people who have hearing problems after 60 years is growing. Actually I read a study made by Amplifon about hearing aids. According to this study over 50% of the people in the UK aged over 60 have some form of hearing loss but they don’t like the idea of getting a hearing gadget.
A lot of people think the hearing improving devices look strange so they avoid them, but today these devices utilize the latest technologies and no longer look strange.
