It’s official. The age of the “Baby Boomers” as senior citizens is upon us. Who would have thought that the same folks pictured in Time magazine cavorting at Woodstock will soon be ready for social security ? It gives new meaning to the old adage “time flies”.

Clinical tests indicate up to 40% better understanding using this new technology. One of the main reasons for the acceptance of this new technology is comfort. Unlike conventional hearing aids they do not fill the ear canal so there is no “stuffy” feeling.

New “Shadow” Leads the Way

The tiny new “Shadow” is one of the latest entries in this fast growing field of hearing devices. The virtually invisible “Shadow” is specifically designed as a “personal communication device” or PCD for short. For those just realizing that they may not be “getting it all” in a conversation the “Shadow” may just be their ticket to better listening clarity. The big advantage of the

If you have been thinking of doing something about a mild communication problem the “Shadow” may be your answer. Of course it is nice to know that Ohana Hearing Care always offers a written low price guarantee
