Customer Stories

I have worn hearing aids for 40 years, and can’t say enough good things about these hearing aids. I can hear the television or radio at half volume of what I used to and can hear things from other rooms that I never did before. Speech is more clear and understandable to me even if I’m not looking directly at a person. I even heard a coyote howl for the first time the other night – it was amazing!!

Guide for New Hearing Aid Users

When adjusting to new hearing aids, remember...

Hearing aids cannot restore normal hearing. Hearing aids were designed to help you hear better, not perfectly! People with normal hearing occasionally miss words too.

You may still have trouble hearing in noisy situations. People with normal hearing have trouble hearing in noisy situations too. Still, it helps to look directly at the person speaking and watch his or her lips. It is also a good idea to position yourself as close to the speaker as possible.

You may need to return to the office to have your hearing aids adjusted. Many people need to have their hearing aids adjusted—sometimes more than once—after the initial fitting. This is normal. You need to tell your hearing aid dispenser if you are experiencing any discomfort or have any trouble hearing or communicating. If you don't tell them, they can't help you since only you know what you hear. Therefore, it is extremely important for you and your dispenser to work closely together so you can achieve the best hearing possible!

Most of all, be patient. Hearing aids take some getting used to, and not all improvements to your hearing and ability to understand speech will occur overnight. Just as your hearing loss progressed over a period of time, it will take time for your brain to relearn the sounds you have been missing. However, the rewards of hearing aids are truly worth the effort!
