Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are the signs of hearing loss?

Hearing loss is a gradual process. You can detect it by such early signs as:

  • You can hear, but not understand
  • You find it hard to hear in noisy places or in groups of people
  • You think people mumble
  • You need to turn up the TV volume louder than others do
  • You don’t always hear the doorbell or the phone

2. Will one of your devices restore my hearing to normal?

A hearing aid cannot restore your hearing to normal because of the damage done to your auditory system. However, modern hearing devices have proven to be of significant help to people in most listening environments, especially when it comes to hearing speech against background noise. Further research has shown that wearing a hearing aid can improve one’s quality of life and reduce health risks associated with social isolation as a result of hearing loss.

3. Will I become dependent on a hearing aid?

You don’t need to be concerned about becoming dependent. A hearing aid will help you communicate better and enjoy life more. Indeed, many people wonder how they ever managed without one.

4. Does it take long to get used to wearing a hearing aid?

The time to adapt to a hearing aid will vary from person to person. Fortunately, modern hearing aids have sound adaptation managers that make the process of adapting to new sounds very quick and pleasant. For most people, they adapt within a few days, if not a week.

5. What is an audiogram?

An audiogram is a measurement of your results in a hearing test. It usually shows marks on the softest sounds that you can hear, which are set as your hearing thresholds. Our hearing tests can determine the type and degree of hearing loss that you may have.
