How do you know which device is right for you?
• Consider your hearing test results
• Consider your lifestyle requirements
• Consider your preferences and budget
• And if you have experience with hearing aids
Hearing Test Results
The severity and type of hearing loss will help determine which styles of technology will be most appropriate for you. Generally, the larger the hearing loss, the larger the size of the device required to provide the power required to compensate for your hearing. Some clients talk to us about a “hollow” or boomy sound, heard when they speak. This can happen if you have very good low frequency hearing, and are fitted with a device or mould that sits completely in your ear. This is just one of many variables peculiar to you that require expert advice.
Invisible hearing aid styles, like the Starkey Soundlens, can offer a solution to this issue. If your Audiologist is experienced enough to take a deep canal impression of your ear (anatomy willing) the overall design can avoid unwanted occlusion.
Generally, for greater listening requirements, higher levels of technology are required. If you are often in variable, challenging acoustic environments, you will require more advanced hearing aid technology. Appropriate technology that delivers what you want, and not what you don't need is an important conversation to have with an expert and, importantly, an independent Audiologist.
