Why hearing health matters

When you hear well, you are well equipped to embrace the life you want

At Phonak, we believe that hearing well equates to well-being and is essential to living life to the fullest.

Growing evidence shows that treating hearing loss can positively impact your social-emotional, cognitive and physical well-being.1

Social-Emotional well-being

Hearing well allows us to be socially active, connect with others, and communicate effectively – without barriers.

Using hearing aids can improve your quality of life, social interactions, and relationship satisfaction for you and your loved ones.2

Cognitive well-being

The brain plays a crucial role in listening and speech understanding – it’s important to keep it stimulated.

That’s where hearing aids come into play. Hearing aid use is linked to improved memory3 and it has been shown to make listening easier.4
