Almost 30 million Americans suffer from hearing loss. One out of every 11 Americans have some form of hearing loss, and four out of every five people who actually need a hearing aid, do not own one. The survey of the ‘National Council of the Aging’ found that six out of seven Americans aged 45 to 64 suffered from hearing loss and three out of five people above the age of 65 suffered from hearing loss but did not use hearing aids.
