HearingTracker audiologist Matthew Allsop provides a quick but comprehensive overview of over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids, including what they are, who they’re suited for, and how you can use a free online hearing test to see if you’re a candidate. 

Stay tuned for an audiologist’s perspective on the half-dozen OTC hearing aids currently on the market, what they cost, and the “pros and cons” of this new class of hearing aids. Also reviewed are some of the most important recent scientific studies that show why it’s so important to address hearing loss and why improving your hearing—either through professionally fitted or OTC devices—might help avert risk of social isolation, mental decline, and even possibly dementia.
