“Millions of baby boomers hear sounds but do not comprehend words or phrases. They read lips to fill in the blanks” according to Randy Wohlers, President of baby boomer hearing aid solutions company, HearPod Inc. “At least 85 percent of the patients we fit for hearing aids have lost some of their ability to process sounds into words. This is because almost 80 percent of baby boomers who need hearing aids refuse to get help until it is too late. They are afraid that wearing an aid will signal old age, and are unwilling to pay thousands of dollars for high quality hearing aids.”

“Millions of baby boomers hear sounds but do not comprehend words or phrases. They read lips to fill in the blanks” according to Randy Wohlers, President of baby boomer hearing aid solutions company, HearPod Inc. “At least 85 percent of the patients we fit for hearing aids have lost some of their ability to process sounds into words. This is because almost 80 percent of baby boomers who need hearing aids refuse to get help until it is too late. They are afraid that wearing an aid will signal old age, and are unwilling to pay thousands of dollars for high quality hearing aids.”

Wohlers points out: “We have to educate people. One in 10 Americans have hearing loss. This is epidemic in size. Lack of sound stimulation to the brain via the ears causes the brain to stop processing sounds into words. Even with hearing aid correction, once this ability is lost, it is usually permanent.”

Wohlers says that educating boomers and providing an alternative approach is opening the door to millions. At MyHearpod.com, via images and anecdotes about famous boomers with hearing loss, clients discover that hearing loss is frequently the result of living life “full on.” They are introduced to a unique one-stop shopping process for high quality 100% digital HearPod hearing aids (programmed for specific hearing loss) at savings of 65 to 75 percent.

HearPods fit like custom aids, and if boomers supply molds, HearPods are customized from the impressions. Boomers simply visit their physician (which is usually covered by insurance) to obtain an audiogram, and MyHearPod.com does the rest. Clients receive door to door service which includes free shipping, batteries for a year, warrantee, wax guards, online instructional videos and a 24 hour customer service 800 number.

Wohlers concludes: “Many hearing challenged boomers who have traded in their iPods for HearPods are enjoying life to the fullest. We make sure they maximize the hearing they have preserved.”
