WILL A HEARING AID HELP YOU?
Having a hearing loss does not mean that you can no longer enjoy your life! But, if you find that certain words sound muffled or the TV volume is louder than other would prefer, or that cupping your hand behind your ear allows you to hear better, it is time to consider wearing a hearing aid.

A successful hearing aid fitting requires a sophisticated pairing of technology, perception and patience. Technology refers to the internal components of a hearing aid. Perception to the patient's audition and sound preferences. And patience refers to the period of adjustment necessary to perform well with a hearing aid. All these factors are of equal importance to your Acoustician because each of these factors contribute to a satisfied hearing aid customer.

A HEARING AID CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOR THE BETTER!

If you can admit that you are having trouble hearing conversations, or understanding your favourite TV program, or continually asking others to repeat what they have said, a hearing aid will certainly help.

   

REALISTIC HEARING AID EXPECTATIONS

It is critical that you understand what hearing aids can accomplish and have realistic objectives. Your hearing aid should:

  • Allow you to hear sounds that you may not be able to hear or may not hear clearly, like soft voices, certain consonants, children's voices, or outdoor sounds. It will also allow you to understand speech more clearly and with less effort, in a variety of situations.

  • Allow you to hear more clearly in some noisy situations, like in a restaurant or a crowd. It cannot filter out background noise completely, but advanced technology nearing aids can reduce background noise interference considerably.

  • Prevent normally loud sounds from becoming uncomfortable. These sounds that are uncomfortable for people with normal hearing, may be just as uncomfortable for those wearing hearing aids.
