LifePath receivers have a low tone alarm instead of the high-pitched sound used in most smoke alarms. This lower tone sound is also effective for alerting hard to wake children and adults that have a high tone hearing loss.

BABY BOOMERS

Noise induced hearing loss is growing among baby boomers.

Of the more than 75 million Americans born between 1945 and 1964, 20.4% or 16 million suffer some degree of hearing loss. The most noticeable segment of the population to report difficulties in hearing, sensitivity to loud sounds and/or an incessant buzzing -- typical symptoms of hearing loss -- are so-called "baby boomers" in their 50s, 60s and 70s. It's easy to understand why... They and other baby boomers, after all, are the first generation to be born and raised on rock music, gas-powered lawn mowers, traffic gridlock and other everyday threats to our hearing.
