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.
