Holiday tips for those with hearing loss


Socialize more with less effort this holiday season

Hearing in background noise that includes holiday music, children playing, glasses clinking and more can be especially hard when you have hearing loss. Ask the host to lower the volume on the holiday music and make sure the room is well lit, so you can better see facial expressions.

For those who need additional help, Oticon Opn S™ is the first hearing aid proven to work in harmony with your brain to help you hear better with less effort and remember more of what was said. Opn S provides advantages that even the most sophisticated hearing solutions of today can’t deliver — the ability to manage listening to multiple speakers in noisy environments, like holiday parties with family and friends.


Stay connected during holiday fun

On the go with a full schedule of holiday activities? Put in fresh hearing aid batteries before leaving the house when holiday shopping or traveling, to ensure you never lose power. Also, make sure that your hearing aids are cleaned and performing optimally.

In addition, for Opn S users, the discreet, multipurpose Oticon ConnectClip turns your Opn S hearing aids into a wireless headset for easy, hands-free calls from modern mobile phones. Whether you’re on the road, cooking a holiday meal, or shopping with arms filled with packages, ConnectClip makes it easy for you to stay connected.


Get in the holiday spirit with your favorite movies

Schedule time this holiday season to enjoy favorite holiday movies with family and friends. Whether your taste runs to the nostalgic It’s a Wonderful Life or the hilarious Home Alone, watch TV at a volume the whole family can enjoy with the Oticon TV Adapter 3.0. The small TV Adapter lets you stream the TV's audio directly to your Oticon Internet-connected hearing aids. Download the free Oticon ON App from the App store or Google Play.


Share and hear during holiday traditions

Make meaningful connections with your grandchildren this holiday season. Share a favorite holiday story, bake cookies, decorate the house – whatever makes the holidays special for your family. Help your grandchildren understand that hearing loss can sometimes make it difficult for you to hear them. Simple tips, such as asking them to get your attention first or to turn off the TV, can make communication easier. Also, if sitting at a table, try sitting across from them or at a round table to make communication easier.


A healthy hearing New Year’s resolution

Make regular hearing checks part of your New Year’s resolutions. A hearing evaluation is quick and painless and an easy way to invest in your long-term health. Untreated hearing loss can have a negative impact on speech understanding, comprehension and other cognitive activities. Actively wearing hearing aids helps keep you mentally fit by reducing the risk of cognitive decline.

Oticon hearing solutions feature BrainHearing™ technology that preserves as much natural sound and detail as possible so the brain receives the quality input needed to make sense of sound. Begin your New Year’s resolution by visiting our hearing center locator to find a professional near you.
