As we grow old our hearing dwindles: fact
Electronic gadgetry can help us: fact
A decent laptop computer
with multi-functional wizardry
costs peanuts: fact
So why do hearing aids still cost the earth?
They’re tiny, single-use gadgets,
the technology not new.
Materials are worth just pennies,
but the makers charge us thousands.
Should such rampant profiteering be allowed? No.
