H4YT ready for the HLAA Convention!

After months of anticipation, the big days are almost here: June 21-24 is the Hearing Loss Association of America Convention in Providence, Rhode Island!

The annual convention is an important event for everyone involved with the hard of hearing community; from those who are battling the effects of hearing loss to those who assist, educate and inform people suffering from diminished hearing.

HLAA will waste little time in getting things underway when Dr. David Myers delivers the keynote address at 5 p.m. June 21. Dr. Myers is an icon among audiologists and those in the hard of hearing community because of his prolific work as an author (he has written 17 books, including "A Quiet World: Living with Hearing Loss") and his status as the creator of the website hearingloop.org. In his keynote address, titled "Accelerating Progress toward the Looping of America and Doubled Hearing Instrument Functionality," Dr. Myers will discuss how support continues to grow for assistive listening compatibility with hearing instruments.

The morning of June 22 will bring another can't-miss event with the research symposium “How the Brain Makes Sense of the World of Sound” in which researchers and medical professionals from Johns Hopkins University will discuss music perception amongst the hard of hearing. The symposium is scheduled for 9 am through noon.

HLAA has plenty of other activities and opportunities for attendees, including an outing to a minor league baseball game as well as the chance to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

Check out some of our best-selling products!

While we are thrilled to offer hundreds of products for the hard of hearing at Hear 4 You Today, many visitors—new and returning alike—are most interested in learning about our most popular selections. So with that in mind, here's a look at five products that are easily our best-selling, most popular items:

Docs ProPlug Non Vented – Medium: These ear plugs allow those participating in swimming and other water sports plenty of comfort and protection during those summer afternoons and evenings! Each ProPlug has a watertight seal and is soft and hypo-allergenic.

Doc's ProPlug – Medium – Non Vented with Leash: Much like the above item, each ProPlug provides a watertight seal, is hypo-allergenic and provides protection and comfort for swimmers of all ages. However, these ProPlugs have a leash so that wearers can let them rest on the neck. Don’t worry about water getting into the ear plugs—they have no holes, so there's no way for the water to get in there!

Audiologist's Choice Audio Wipes Disinfectant Towelettes – Canister: Each 160 pack of disinfectant wipes will come in handy cleaning not only hearing aids and other products for the hard of hearing but anything around the house: sinks, toilets, toys, counter tops and much more! There's no alcohol in the towelettes, so rubber and plastic items will not be harmed.

Hal-Hen Super Dri-Aid – Single Jar: A damp or wet hearing aid is an ineffective one, so keep it clean by placing it inside the jar every night. The special molecular sieve pellets in Hal-Hen Super Dri-Aid can hold a tremendous amount of moisture and last for months at a time before needing rejuvenation. And when the Dri-Aid needs rejuvenation? The blue indicator pellets will turn opaque!

Lightweight Plastic Stethoset: Gives parents peace of mind by allowing them to quickly and decisively check the performance of a hearing aid before sending their children off to school. The test takes just 30 seconds and will indicate if the hearing aid is distorted or weakened. The stethoset is a comfortable fit for all wearers and the eartips can be removed easily in order to clean and/or replace them.
