Mat Hench posted a parody video of this exact situation on his YouTube channel earlier this week. He noticed the similarities between hearing aids and glasses in terms of reducing daily effort and making life easier. However, despite the similarities, as a society we stigmatize each very differently.
By making light of the situation, his video makes you appreciate how nonsensical it is to avoid hearing aids because of the stigmatization that “hearing aids are only for old people”.
With these amazing advancements in technology that have the ability to make your life easier and improve your quality of life, why wouldn’t you want to take advantage of them.
Have a watch, and hopefully the next time you see someone wearing a set of hearing aids, you remember this video!
