Devices for the Hard of Hearing in the Home and Workplace

Devices for the Hard of Hearing help the hearing loss community by providing enhanced sounds. Alongside your digital hearing aids, the likes of amplified phones and alarm clocks deliver louder sounds than their standard counterparts. In this guide, we walk you through some of the devices available that can improve your quality of life.

Which Devices for the Hard of Hearing Are Available?

Technology is now so advanced that the hard of hearing can take advantage of an array of beneficial devices that help improve their lifestyle. This wide range of items provides a practical solution to hearing loss management in both the home and the workplace. Hearing impaired devices also help encourage independent living, and offer greater access to communication and social activities. Along with hearing aids, those with hearing loss can also depend on even more devices, such as: All these aim to deliver high volumes of sound, as well as improve clarity when in noisy environments. Whilst these hearing impaired devices do not and cannot cure hearing loss, they greatly help the condition by making hearing loss less of a factor in everyday activities. Hearing Direct offers a variety of products, complementary to hearing aids that can be of use to those experiencing hearing difficulties.

Amplified Telephones

Communication is a daily necessity. Specialised amplified phones for the hard of hearing feature all the fundamentals you would expect on any corded or cordless home phone. But, the key difference is the levels of amplification. These phones boast a ringer and voice volume which is far louder than that of normal DECT telephones. Some can even be adjusted to match your hearing needs. With hearing aid compatibility available across many of the models we supply, amplified telephones offer an instant improvement to the way the hard of hearing communicate with family and friends.

Super Loud Alarm Clocks

This one is for the hard to wake as well as the hard of hearing. Loud alarm clocks come with a plethora of alerting tactics designed to get you up and out of bed with haste. As with amplified phones, super loud clocks also boast alarms far louder than stand clocks. Many of the clocks we supply come equipped with flashing lights, bright large displays, and a function for vibration. They are also available in different amplification levels. For example, the Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock is one of the loudest in production today!

Assistive Listening Devices

Assistive listening devices cover an expansive set of hearing impaired devices that add a little extra to your daily routine. Whether it be at home, or out and about, wearable technology can be the hearing assistant you need to effectively and efficiently enhance the sounds around us. Check out the following: Depending on the severity of your hearing loss, you may require a mixture of methods to enjoy the best of the sounds you love, but all can be achieved with the appropriate hearing impaired devices.

Wireless TV Listeners

Now, many are free to enjoy activities such as listening to the radio or watching TV without having to disturb the rest of the household by increasing the volume. Wireless TV listeners are used to amplify sounds from various devices such as the TV, CD Players, PC/Laptop, and MP3/MP4 players. They reduce external noises and have rechargeable batteries and a light comfortable design. This all means you can listen at the required volume that suits you, without disturbing or being too loud for others.

When Did You Last Check Your Hearing?

It is advised that you check your hearing regularly, even more so as we get older. We offer a free online hearing test which you can use to benchmark your current hearing ability. Our test is free, only takes a few minutes, and the results are instant. Results will indicate if you should do more to look after your hearing. Should you have concerns, we strongly advise that you consult a medical professional for a clinical assessment.
