Hearing Aid Benefits
The hearing system functions on the principle of stereo sound. The hearing center of the brain relies on two independent “microphones” – the ears. If only one ear is functioning properly, it may be difficult to understand speech in noisy environments and in locating the direction from which a sound is coming. This means that it is advisable to wear a hearing instrument in both ears, assuming it is appropriate based on the hearing loss.
Hearing aids can provide users:
- Ability to localize sound
- Better speech understanding in a noisy environment
- Equal hearing in both ears
- Better sound quality
- Improved intelligibility
- Wireless Connectivity
- Improved social and emotional health
- Less listening fatigue
