Westone, the leader in high performance audio, in-ear monitoring technology, and hearing protection, has announced its support of HHF and HHF's work to cure hearing loss and tinnitus. Westone will be donating a portion of every sale of all Westone Audio products to HHF through 2014.
As I try to remind my kids, the season is about gift giving, not receiving, and this year, I'll talk to my family about giving the gift of healthy hearing. An annual hearing test taken every year around the holidays is the perfect way to show your family you care, and for them to show you they care.
Thanksgiving is unique in that it's a holiday specifically about food (and not, say, gift-giving or something religious). After the long Thanksgiving weekend, I force myself back to the gym to burn off those excess calories. But participating in sports and other physical activities can be a challenge for those with hearing loss who use hearing aids or cochlear implants.
