A brush through the dust of old hearing aid advertising brings home just how much the past is a foreign country. With the help of the world’s leading hearing device manufacturers, we offer you a slideshow video tour through some classic ads dating back to the 1940s.

Graphic design dates quickly, but so do sales pitches and the technology they try to sell. Check it out for yourself in the following video.

Digging in the archives was not easy in pandemic conditions, so we are especially grateful for the images supplied by Sonova, Demant, WS Audiology, GN Hearing, and Starkey Hearing Technologies.
