When it comes to purchasing hearing aids, there are many types and styles of devices available to choose from. Finding and deciding on the right hearing aid for your degree and type of hearing loss can seem overwhelming, however with the help of your audiologists you will be able to make an informed decision about your hearing needs. While an audiologist has intimate knowledge of the many types and styles of hearing aids available on the market, it is important to tell your audiologist key information that will help narrow down which hearing aid is perfect for you.

Factors Influencing Hearing Aid Selection
The most important factor guiding the hearing aid selection is the type and degree of hearing loss. The type and degree of hearing loss will determine which options you will have to choose from. Some hearing aids are specifically tailored to help those with more severe to profound hearing losses. Additionally, when choosing a hearing aid, it is important to consider the following factors, as they will influence the type of device you’ll be most comfortable purchasing and wearing:
  • Lifestyle: The life you lead — or wish to lead — is a big factor in a hearing aid purchase. Different styles will be more suitable for those leading more physical or active lives.
  • Special features: Speaking of special features and accessories, you will want to discuss with your audiologist any add-on options available with hearing aids. Some features can help those hear better in noisy environments or enable hearing aids to connect to one’s cell phone or Bluetooth speaker. These options would be useful for those individuals who talk on the phone often, either for work or with loved ones.
  • Cost: Another major factor driving a hearing aid purchase is cost. The more accessories and newer the technology, the more expensive a pair of hearing aids will cost.
  • Other factors to consider: manual dexterity and visual abilities, skin sensitivities, cosmetics and anatomical/medical considerations.

Your audiologist will consider all influencing factors in order to recommend the best hearing aid option in terms of your hearing loss, lifestyle and finances available.

We would like to ensure that all our patient’s are happy and comfortable with their hearing aids, so we will work as a team to find the best available option for you.

The process and journey with hearing aids.

You, together with your Audiologist, has decided on the best hearing aid for you. What to expect next?

As soon as we have received your hearing aid, we will do the hearing aid fitting. Hearing aids are usually ordered and received within 3 to 4 days. In some cases we might receive the hearing aid the next day!

During this session your audiologist will make sure that the hearing aids fit comfortably on the ears. The audiologist will program the hearing aids on the software according to your specific hearing loss (first session hearing test results). The hearing aids will now be switched on and the patient and audiologist will start talking about how it sounds and if the patient is comfortable enough to wear the hearing aids. This is especially important for individuals using hearing aids for the first time.

Hearing aids are initially programmed slightly softer than prescribed for comfort purposes and to ensure that the patient can gradually adjust to the hearing aids. This is also partially the purpose of the follow-up appointments – to steadily increase the amplification of the hearing aids until the settings are exactly on the prescribed settings.

Finally your audiologist will orientate you in order to ensure that you know exactly how to insert, use and take care of your hearing aids.

Why hearing aids are important?

Hearing aids keep your BRAIN FIT

We hear with our brains. Not our ears. The ears receive sounds and send them to the brain that translates the sounds into meaning. Hearing aids are designed to support your brain and help it make sense of sound, our technology helps you hear better with less effort. Untreated Hearing loss, may lead to less stimulation of the brain and may accelerate mental decline. This could lead to difficulty remembering and problem solving.
