FAQ’s

A: There are many types of hearing instruments to choose from. Early analog instruments with many undesirable effects are now being replaced with digital technology. These instruments sort sounds into bands or frequency ranges that can be grouped to provide precision amplification in select ranges. This means that sounds of nature, music, and speech are perceived and amplified differently. The end result is greater precision in hearing correction so that speech sounds are enhanced while background noises are reduced. Your hearing health professional will help you select the best one for you.

A: Your hearing aid was most likely an analog type with many disadvantages. Today’s digital technologies are programmed by a computer to match your type of hearing loss and unique requirements. Depending upon the type you select, there can be a significant improvement in the sound quality.

A: Most people have hearing loss in both ears, yet some only wear one hearing aid. Amplifying only one ear when both ears need help can put you at a disadvantage. Your brain needs two ears for hearing accuracy. Here’s why:

  • Increased Speech Clarity:
    Wearing two, instead of just one, makes it easier to understand speech in normal listening situations and in noise.
  • Enhanced Sound Quality:
    When hearing through two hearing devices, sounds have a fuller quality and feel more balanced. Volume levels can be set lower, minimizing the distortion.
  • Improved Localization:
    With two hearing aids, the brain receives sound from both ears. This makes it easier to tell where the sound is coming from, a skill known as localization. Localization tells you which way to turn when someone is calling your name.
