Wearing Hearing Devices Properly

Getting new hearing instruments can require you to be a bit patient so that you can grow accustomed to your new hearing world.  Over time, hearing loss eliminates several sounds which suddenly reappear as a result of wearing hearing aids, thus these sounds can take some time to get used to.  It is common to feel a sense of exasperation over the initial period, but over time you can work with your audiologist to help you adjust your hearing device settings and help you regain your optimal sense of hearing.  Here are some recommendations that can help you adjust to [...]

In addition to their schooling they also take continuing education classes to help keep their skills fresh. Audiology has traditionally been a Master’s Degree program. In the past few years [...]

Waterproof Hearing Aids

Are there waterproof hearing aids? Hearing aids have to have some sort of opening for the microphone so that sound waves can get inside.  Once inside, the computer chip in the hearing aid processes the signal (adjusting for noise, different frequencies and so on) and delivers the modified sounds to your eardrum. Because there must be an opening for sound waves to get in to the aid there are no hearing aids that are completely waterproof (meaning you can’t store them in a bowl of water!).  There are some new hearing aids that are surprisingly water-resistant. What’s the problem with [...]
