How’s Your Hearing?
It is estimated that 40 million Americans show some form of hearing loss. The odds of hearing loss go up with age, with over two-thirds of individuals over the age of 60 having difficulty hearing high pitch sounds and 1 in 4 having difficulty hearing speech. Worse yet, many people who think they have good hearing don't even realize they already have some hearing loss.
