Just when you thought hearing aids
couldn’t get any smaller
Many surveys have found that one
of the aspects about growing old –
or feeling old – that affects people
the most is their hearing. Or, more
accurately, lack thereof.
Although most hearing problems
don’t cause pain, they do cause
anxiety, because they impact on
people’s lives and lifestyles.
Not being able to hear properly often
causes people to withdraw from all
sorts of social or family situations
and avoid any places where there’s
a lot of background noise. And, of
course, this can put a strain on
Just to make matters that little
bit worse, anyone with hearing
difficulties is often treated as if their
intelligence has also been affected.
Is it any wonder all this can lead
to a loss of self-esteem and self-
HEARINGLife is pleased to report
that all of the above is exactly why
Groove hearing aids have been
developed and introduced – for
people who are still young at heart
but need (and really appreciate) a bit
of a helping hand with their hearing.
Groove ticks all the boxes when it
comes to the features and benefits
on the wish list of anyone who has
hearing difficulties but has put off
doing anything about it! Groove is
what you’ve been waiting for.
Firstly, Groove is what you might call
out of sight ... these are hearing aids
so small and discreet that they’re
virtually invisible – and that means
nobody is going to notice them.
There’s nothing protruding from the
ear, or around the back of the ear.
Secondly, Groove are comfortable
for the wearer because they are
carefully molded to fit snugly, deep
within the ear.
Thirdly, the sound quality is
remarkable (or probably, more
accurately, unremarkable!) because
of the natural sound quality,
thanks to decades of technological
development by Sonic Innovations –
living up to their name.
Fourthly, Groove boasts astonishing
noise reduction capabilities – it’s
acclaimed to be the first hearing aid
of its size with such powerful, state
of the art noise reduction technology.
This means Groove handles even the
noisiest situations automatically and
effortlessly – making conversations
easy to follow, without having to
resort to lip-reading or trying to
guess every other word. (Wouldn’t
we all like this when we eat out in
those noisy, designer-created, open-
Groove is really a lifestyle investment
for people who have a zest for life
and enjoy kicking up their heels –
but don’t want to allow a few hearing
difficulties to slow them down.
The good news is that Groove
hearing aids are available to
pensioners with a subsidy under the
Commonwealth Hearing Services
Scheme. Or they can be purchased
and the cost offset by claiming on
private health cover or personal tax.
