Why do I have a different level of success with my hearing aids than other people that I know with hearing aids?
There are always three main factors to anybody’s success with their hearing instruments:
1. You. Your degree of hearing loss and what your ears are capable of will determine what we have to work with.
2. Me. How accurately do I adjust and set the hearing aids? Did I select accurate physical properties to suit your needs?
3. The hearing aids. The level of technology in a hearing aid may determine a person‘s success due to what the devices are capable of, for example, adapting or performing to hear a conversation while in background noise, or providing a wireless direct connection to an audio source such as a telephone or television. Your experience with your devices should not be compared to the experience of another individual, whose hearing abilities, dispenser, devices, and “listening lifestyle” will likely be different than your own.
