When hearing-impaired individuals are first fitted with their new hearing instruments, they may be somewhat overwhelmed by the many sounds that have eluded them for so long. It may take a while for them to become adjusted to hearing words and sounds that they have yet to become accustomed to hearing more clearly. It’s even important to wear a hearing instrument when it is quiet so that the brain can adjust to the sound.
A successful hearing aid fitting is more than just selecting the correct device for your hearing needs. The hearing aids need to be properly fitted to your ears so that they provide the correct amount of amplification to maximize hearing aid benefit.
