What to Expect from a Hearing Aid

How hearing aids work, when working properly


Your hearing aids should help you understand and communicate in a variety of sound environments. Depending on the level of technology recommended by your hearing professional, your hearing aids may switch automatically or manually between memory settings for different sound environments.


· Hearing and communicating in quiet environments (home, work, doctor’s office) should be improved.

· Your ability to hear and understand speech in environments with background noise (restaurants, dinner parties, environments with fans or A/C running) should be improved.

· Your hearing aids should help you understand speech in larger environments where there is reverberation (lecture halls, worship spaces, movie theaters).

·  Loud sounds (sirens, traffic, construction sounds) should not be uncomfortable but you should hear them clearly.
