Las Vegas is one of the hotspots for people around the world to come and ring in the new year, and this year is no exception. Celebrating with hundreds of thousands of people in town can require careful planning. But if you have hearing aids, you may need to take some extra steps to ensure you have a great New Year’s Eve celebration.
To help you navigate your hearing aid needs while celebrating the new year in Las Vegas, you naturally can count on Hearing Associates of Las Vegas to come in with helpful hearing aid tips and tricks!
Carry Extra Hearing Aid Batteries Or Charger
Having your hearing aids run out of battery is annoying at the best of times. But, if you are out celebrating, navigating can become difficult if your batteries die. So, to prevent you from being without your hearing aids’ help, be sure to carry an extra pair of hearing aids. Also, if you have noticed that your hearing aids are running low on charge, just swap out your hearing aid batteries before you go out to ring in the new year.
Those who have rechargeable hearing aids do have an advantage, as they can be sure that their hearing aids are charged and ready to party. Some rechargeable hearing aids even come with a portable charger that can quickly recharge their hearing aids. So, if you have rechargeable hearing aids with a portable charger, be sure to tuck that into a pocket or purse.
Contact The Event Hall Where You Will Ring In The New Year
Naturally, in Las Vegas, there are plenty of shows and concerts you can attend as part of your new year celebrations. In general, we recommend you wear your hearing aids when it comes to going to concerts and other event halls for entertainment.
For one thing, if you have your hearing aids, it will be easier for you to navigate things like valet parking, ticket takers, and concessions. Even if you turn off your hearing aids during the performance, you still have them there to help after you are done.
Some event halls have accessibility accommodations for those who are hearing impaired. Once you know what shows you want to catch, you can contact the event hall and see what accommodations they can provide you to make it a better listening experience.
Protect Your Hearing During 2020 Firework Shows
You can enjoy some pretty spectacular fireworks displays when celebrating the new year here in Las Vegas. At the stroke of midnight, the casinos coordinate an exciting fireworks show. However, if you don’t want a side of tinnitus with those stunning fireworks, you’ll plan some hearing protection.
You can turn down your hearing aids so that the concussive blast of the fireworks is not piped directly into your inner ear; however, actual hearing protection would be better. Using a pair of disposable earplugs—or better, earmuffs to protect more of your hearing—to prevent further hearing loss and tinnitus flare-ups.
Set Up Various Hearing Zones In Your Home
If you are more of a party-at-home kind of person when it comes to new year celebrations, then there are some things you can do to make your home more hearing-friendly. One of the key things is to create different hearing zones.
For instance, if you have music playing for dancing, try to keep it to one room while seating and snacks are in another area of your home. That way, if you need a hearing break, you can go to a quieter part of your home.
