Hearing Life 

Frequency: Quarterly (4 issues per year) | Readership: 16,000

Hearing Life is the leading consumer-focused magazine for people with hearing loss. Formerly known as Hearing Loss Magazine, the publication underwent a meaningful name change and complete redesign in 2018. The new name and design more accurately reflect the vibrant, active consumer base that the magazine reaches. And it provides relevant content that responds to readers’ broad range of interests as they seek to live their best lives with hearing loss.

Hearing Life reaches a highly engaged, highly targeted audience, including HLAA members, hearing health centers, and libraries. HLAA also distributes the publication at all marketing events. The magazine is also offered in digital format.
