It’s no surprise that we deal with thousands of customers from Texas every week who seek hearing aids to deal with their hearing loss. Parts of the Longhorn State have some of the loudest locations in the country. For instance, Houston, TX regularly tops the list of the country’s noisiest cities, possibly due to residential and industrial activities happening at the same time. It’s obvious that millions of Texans are at risk of hearing loss.
About 10 percent of Americans suffer from hearing impairment, which translates into roughly 3 million Texans. And 25 percent of the American population suffer from tinnitus (ringing in the ears), which bumps up the statewide total by another million or so.
However, we know that hearing aids can help many of these people restore their hearing, but only 16 percent of Americans investigate what can help them with their hearing issues. You can guarantee that wherever you are in Texas, neighbors and coworkers are not actively finding ways to improve their hearing.
At hear.com, we know that simple remedies can be applied for most of these people with hearing loss.
