Australian reality television host Oscher Günsberg showed off his Phonak hearing aids to his social media fans, with an important message about hearing health.

The 42-year-old host of Australia’s “The Bachelor” and “Australian Idol,” shared his slick Phonak receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aids with an earfie photo on Instagram.

“Wear earplugs. Turn your earbuds down,” he wrote to fans, alluding that his hearing loss may have been a result of unsafe listening practices.

It is unclear what level of hearing loss Oscher may have, however he told one fan on Twitter that his Phonak hearing aids help him “hear lots more” and communication is now “less frustrating for my family that’s for sure.”
