The New Year has begun and you may have started the year off with some lofty goals. On the other hand, you may have spent the month sitting on the couch streaming your favorite TV shows – it’s all good. However, if you’re noticing some difficulty hearing your favorite bingeable series, it could be time for a hearing evaluation.

Even if you think your hearing is perfect, a hearing evaluation at RK Audiology may be the best gift you can give yourself in the New Year.

Check out these 5 reasons why:

  • Find out where you stand
    Do you feel like you’re losing hearing? Maybe you hear well and are just curious. Getting an evaluation gives you a baseline and lets you know where you stand. It’s the best way to find out if the care you need is preventative or assistive.
  • Wax
    Ah, earwax – it’s a healthy part of your body’s regulatory system. A little is good; too much can cause problems. Before you reach for that cotton swab – be careful. We warn against putting those little sticks of cotton in your ears to clean them. Doing so can cause wax buildup (by pushing wax deeper into your ear canal). It can even damage your ears and diminish your hearing. (TIP: Never put something smaller than your elbow in your ears!) If you’ve been experiencing some change in hearing, an ear cleaning and evaluation might be just what you need…after all, it could just be wax.
  • Personalized Care
    Managing your hearing health can be complex and confusing. Some people opt for big box stores with enticing low low prices to purchase hearing aids and other assistive or preventative hearing products. You may be trading savings for limited choices. Improving your hearing health works better with personalized products and services. At RK Audiology, our audiologists stay up-to-date on all the latest technology. We spend the time needed with each client to provide complete satisfaction and ongoing follow-up care.
  • Music
    For Austinites living in the “Live Music Capital of the World”, it is important to keep your ears fit. Fortunately, there’s no need to compromise the music. Filtered earplugs that offer high-quality ear protection, while allowing you to hear both the music and your friends, offer the best of both worlds. At RK, we have both over-the-counter and custom-fit options.
  • Get a plan
    “A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline.” [Harvey Mackay] A plan of action for your hearing – be it preventative or assistive – will help you achieve your goal and give you peace of mind.

All of the above and more add up to the most important reason of all: a better quality of life. Scheduling a hearing evaluation will help you prepare for the future…a healthy future.
