Hearing Aid Fitting Will Help You Get The Best Sound

We’ll program your new hearing aids based on the results of your hearing test and your individual preferences and unique listening environments. We can fine-tune your hearing instruments to help you hear in a variety of situations, including in restaurants, crowds and other difficult listening situations. Hearing is subjective; friends with the same hearing loss as you may prefer to have their hearing aids programmed differently.

We’ll Fine Tune Your Hearing Aid With Live Speech Mapping

We also use Live Speech Mapping, a hearing aid fitting process that uses probe microphones and live real-time speech. It allows you and your family members to immediately see and understand the benefits of hearing aids and fitting adjustments.

We treat our patients like our own family because we recognize that hearing well is important in all of your relationships!

How To Get Used To Your Hearing Aids

Hearing loss typically develops over many years. Becoming reacquainted with sounds while using hearing aids will take practice and time. We’ve had patients who needed only a few days to get used to their new hearing aids, but most need a few weeks to a few months.

In general, the greater your hearing loss and the longer the hearing loss has been present, the more challenging it is to transition to hearing aids. There’s no perfect way to learn how to adjust to hearing aids. But the time you spend adjusting to your new hearing aids is well worth it. Try to be patient with yourself as you get used to the new sounds, and return to our office for adjustments or consultation if needed. We’re here to help you through this process!

The Secret To Getting The Best Sound From Your Hearing Aids

There are three things you can do to help us adjust your hearing aids so you can get the maximum benefit from wearing them:

  1. Wear your hearing aids as much as possible. The more you wear them, the more you’ll get used to them and, most importantly, the more information you’ll have to tell us so we can make adjustments.
  2. Write down the situations where you feel you aren’t hearing your best so we can reprogram the devices to work better there.
  3. Be patient. Most of the time we can help you get more from your hearing aids, but it may take two or three visits to make this happen.
