The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) believes that information about products and services that could benefit people with hearing loss should be made available to consumers to help them make informed decisions about their hearing health care. 

As such, reference to specific products, services, organizations or claims made in advertisements or sponsorships through any HLAA medium or event—including, but not limited to, Hearing Life magazine, Hearing Life e-News, the HLAA website (, the HLAA Walk4Hearing and HLAA Convention—does not constitute endorsement, recommendation, or favoring by HLAA, nor does exclusion suggest disapproval. While we make every effort to provide accurate and reliable information, HLAA does not control or guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or efficacy of information contained in any advertisement or sponsorship.

HLAA strongly encourages consumers to consult with an audiologist or other hearing health care or medical professional before making a decision in regard to diagnosis or treatment options for their hearing loss.
