In brief: Any age

Many people have difficulty hearing as they age, but if hearing aids can help you hear, you're never too young to get them.

In brief: Now

Hearing aids are useful as soon as you notice a problem. Look around! you'll even find children who need hearing aids.

Hearing aids are great and made me not speak so loudly. There are many options but also many expensive products. I bought a pair at a low price and have no problems. Not that anyone wants to listen to me often.
