Baby Boomer Hearing Loss Is Costing Millions

Share Article

While hearing loss has historically been associated with age, increasingly people in their 40s and 50s are bewildered and devastated by this condition. According to Randy Wohlers, President of HearPod Inc., specializing in the correction of baby boomer hearing loss, “Baby boomers are the first generation to be exposed to electronically amplified sound. Today, we know that prolonged exposure to loudly amplified music over 85 db can cause permanent hearing loss. Many cases of hearing loss among baby boomers can be traced to their youth when they listened to rock bands or played in them. Additionally, baby boomers are the first generation to experience prolonged exposure to loud sounds from electric blenders, lawn care equipment, power tools, recreational vehicles, jet airplanes and even electric tooth brushes.

Baby boomers usually experience hearing loss as a thief sneaking up from behind, robbing them of their earning potential and life's pleasures. Income squandered by working people with uncorrected hearing loss ranges from $1,000 a year (for those with mild hearing loss) to $12,000 a year (for those with profound hearing loss). Business people lose large sums of money due to verbal misunderstandings. Hearing loss diminishes their ability to enjoy conversations with friends and family, resulting in unnecessary misunderstandings and disagreements. Over time, they can question their decision-making ability, leading to a loss of self-confidence and erosion of their sense of well-being."
