‘Wearables’ are the new wireless earbuds, aimed to improve hearing for those who are not yet ready for a full hearing aid.
Not only do they enable the wearer to listen to their music and take calls through the device, the Nuheara Earbuds also help to amplify and sharpen the sound, giving an overall easier listening experience.
Specsavers in Liverpool is just one of five stores trialling the new wearables range, which is priced from £197.50, and look just like earphones.
People’s hearing typically starts to deteriorate due to age from the age of 55 which is when a hearing aid is recommended. However, this interim device which is the first of its kind, will help sharpen and amplify sound before a full aid is required.
Matt Kearon audiology director at the Liverpool Specsavers store says: ‘This is a great opportunity for our customers who have mild hearing loss to explore the latest technology. These new wearables can act as a great bridge to hearing aids.
Matt adds: ‘These days, almost everywhere you look, somebody no matter their age has something in their ears. With the ever-changing look of headphones, the wearables tech fits right in and we are delighted to be one of the first stores to be trialling the devices.’
Specsavers recommends that those over the age of 55 should have their hearing checked every two years, and if you are concerned about your hearing make an appointment to see your Specsavers audiologist.
