Public Notice

SASLHA urges the public to be cautious when buying hearing aids from the internet, as some of those on offer are of questionable quality and use outdated technology. Hearing impairment differs greatly from person to person and may be an indicator of a condition requiring medical attention. There is no one-size-fits-all hearing aid on the market. Audiologists and hearing aid acousticians are trained to perform the necessary tests and procedures to ensure that hearing aids provide the optimal benefit without the risk of damaging the residual hearing.
