Hearing aids are devices used to help people with hearing loss hear sounds better. Like any technology, innovation has moved quickly over the last 10 years and modern hearing aids are smaller, sound better, and connect with the technology in our lives (i.e. smartphones). While the cognitive and communication benefits of wear hearing aids is well researched, one of the main barriers to hearing aid adoption is stigma.[1] Unfortunately it is common images of older outdated hearing aids to be used in the media which perpetuated these negative attitudes. In response the Hearing Health industry has advocated for pictures of modern hearing aids to be made more freely available for journalists.[2] This page is designed to be a depository for these.
