With everyone and their dog owning an iPod these days, I fear that the present generation will end up deaf sooner rather than later. Just in case you need to wear hearing aids, perhaps the Personal Communication Aids will be able to take away the stigma and shame (more personal than external) attached with wearing these, as they are barely visible and highly capable. Designed by the Phonak Group from Switzerland, these hearing aids greatly amplify high-pitched sounds such as consonants and rustling paper, helping you live out your life without missing out on conversations and the sounds of nature. Unfortunately, a high price is attached to these, retailing between $1,500 to $3,500 each.
