Why do I have a dif­fer­ent level of suc­cess with my hear­ing aids than other peo­ple that I know with hear­ing aids?

The Drumheller Mail - - Classified­s -

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.
