Hearing aids can improve speech understanding in quiet and challenging environments. They are programmed and fine-tuned based on the results from the audiologic evaluation and the client’s feedback. Hearing aids are specific to the client and are individualised based on the client’s specific needs and lifestyle.
Sometimes, individuals find that they need even more assistance with speech understanding in difficult listening situations such as noisy environments, work meetings, telephone conversations, or when watching the television. There are accessories available in addition to the hearing aids that are helpful in overcoming some of those challenges. Speak with our audiologist about these options at your appointment if you feel like you would benefit from an accessory for any of those listening environments.
Assistive listening devices can be beneficial for clients who experience difficulty in specific environments who are not a candidate or are not ready for hearing aids.
