Well, of course they will not tell you that using hearing aids can accelerate hearing loss. Why would they do that? There is no other solution they can offer. I was brought to this knowledge by a loudspeaker manufacturer who's been in business for 45 years. He chose hearing loss and hearing restoration as his charitable cause for that entire time. He has been involved with that since the 1970s and has campaigned endlessly for better techniques and education about hearing aids. Hearing aids are tools, but should always be used with the least amount of volume boosting as possible and for short periods of time in order to reduce any chance of the hearing aids causing further hearing loss. The more you need the hearing aid, the louder the EQ has to be for effectiveness... but the louder the hearing aid is set, the larger the chance of causing more hearing loss. You can choose to believe this or not... your belief is not required for this to be fact.
If you create the EQ in your audio system, every time you listen to anything at any significant volume level, you can be contributing to further hearing loss. So the more you need hearing aids, the faster they will further degrade your hearing just by using them. When you lose the ability to hear some range of sound, the ability of sound in that frequency range to further damage your hearing does not go away. Again, your belief is not required for this to be factual.
