About Hearing Loss and Hearing Aids
Nearly 40 million Americans have some degree of hearing loss. Most frequently, it is due to repeated exposure to loud noises—at concerts, nightclubs, crowded restaurants, loud workplaces, hunting or recreational shooting, and loud sporting events like baseball and football games. What many people don’t realize is it’s easy to get a hearing test by a licensed hearing care professional. And, it’s free at Luna Family Hearing. Most Americans with hearing loss can be helped by wearing hearing aids. Hearing aids typically range in price from $795 each to $3699 each at Luna Family Hearing, depending on the technology within each hearing aid.
Today’s hearing aid technology allows wearers to hear from all directions, in all sorts of sound environments. Most recently, Luna Family Hearing introduced the availability the first ever “Made for iPhone” hearing aid, the ReSound LiNX™. ReSound LiNX represents the next step forward in hearing aid technology. Designed to connect directly with your iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch® as well as compatibility using a Unite Phone Clip for wireless connectivity with any Bluetooth cellular telephone, computer or tablet streaming directly to the hearing aids for an amazing listening experience.

Does your Dad have a hearing loss?
Over 22 years ago, I realized during a routine hearing test that my Dad had a hearing loss that was affecting most aspects of his life. He struggled to hear at home, with my mom and his 4 children, at work with colleagues and customers, and at social gathering.
The solution – buying hearing aids that changed his life and his experience allowing him to hear all the sounds he was missing!
My dad, a lifelong musician, lost his enjoyment of music when he struggled with his hearing. Watch him talk about what it’s like to have it back: Luna Family Hearing: Norm Luna Shares his story about hearing loss and hearing aids
Come into Luna Family Hearing and let us help your Dad hear better! Our hearing tests are always free and you can come in with your Dad to experience the difference hearing can make in communication during a free in-office demonstration!
Happy Father’s Day Dad – thanks for taking the leap to wear hearing aids at such a young age in your mid-40′s – your family really appreciates having you hear again!
And Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there.
Have a great Father’s Day!
7 Ways ReSound LiNX and iPhone Can Make Your Life Easier
(Posted on April 9, 2014 by gnresound)
You already know that your iPhone® gives you access to more than 1 million apps in the App Store℠. But did you know that using your ReSound LiNX™ hearing aid with iPhone apps can eliminate some major nuisances from your life?
Baby Monitor – Have you ever gone on vacation and forgot to bring your baby monitor? Or had the grand kids over and Mom forgot to pack the monitor in the diaper bag? If you have ReSound LiNX and an iPhone, just use direct-to-hearing aid streaming to turn your ReSound LiNX into an instant baby monitor.
Alarm Clock – You don’t need to worry about over-sleeping when your iPhone is synced to your hearing aid. You can even choose the type of sound or music you would prefer to wake you up in the morning!
Sleep Time App – If you don’t pop out of bed at the sound of your alarm, try using the Sleep Time app. Sleep Time provides a soothing soundscape to help you nod off and then tracks your sleep cycle throughout the night. When you set the alarm for the morning, it will find your lightest sleep phase within half an hour to make waking up a little easier. The app also comes with an Instant Heart Rate meter to measure your pulse upon awakening. Talk about a relaxing night!
GPS – Punch in your destination and let your iPhone talk you through each step of your route.
Road Radar – No one likes seeing those flashing lights in their rear view mirror. Fortunately there’s Trapster, an app that can help you avoid almost any road hazard. When a user spots a speed trap, they report it by tapping the map as they pass by. Other users are alerted as they approach it, and can confirm the trap’s location by tapping the map as well. The app also alerts users to road hazards including construction zones, flooded roads and more. With ReSound LiNX synced to your iPhone, you’ll hear about a trap before you see those flashing lights.
First Aid – Filmmaker Dan Woolley once used the Pocket First Aid and CPR app to survive an earthquake. He used the app to assist him in treating his wounds. The application also told him to set reminders not to fall asleep so he would not go into shock. If you ever find yourself in a predicament, this app will help you patch yourself right up.
Email Reader – Do you typically stare at your phone as you walk or work out? Hate that you can’t check email while you’re driving? Just ask Siri to read your emails to you. Talk about multitasking!
If you’d like a free, no obligation demonstration of LiNX at one of our offices, then please call 1-855-HEAR-NOW or visit www.lunafamilyhearing.com/ReSoundLiNX to schedule your appointment today!
