A Brilliant Solution

Hearing aids are a solution to a problem that millions of Americans face every single day; the inability to hear what they want to hear. Hearing aids are sound-amplifying devices designed to aid people who have a hearing impairment. Over 33 million children and adults in the United States have some degree of hearing loss. Hearing loss can have a negative effect on communication, relationships, school/work performance, and emotional well-being.

We’re glad you decided to read a little bit about hearing loss and hearing aids. We understand that this is a big step for many people. We hope the information provided on these pages helps you understand that there is a solution to the problem.

Most hearing aids share several similar electronic components, including a microphone that picks up sound; amplifier circuitry that makes the sound louder; a miniature loudspeaker (receiver) that delivers the amplified sound into the ear canal; and batteries that power the electronic parts.


  • At age 65, one out of three people has a hearing loss.
  • 60% of the people with hearing loss are either in the work force or in educational settings.
  • While people in the workplace with the mildest hearing losses show little or no drop in income, as the hearing loss increases, compensation decreases.
  • Almost 15% of school-age children (ages 6-19) have some degree of hearing loss.
