Unlike some of your everyday electronics that you purchase online or in a store, hearing aids need to be programmed to suit an individual’s particular needs. Whether it’s a customized or standard hearing aid that you have been fitted for, it’s important to have a device that is beneficial for you.
New Hearing Aid User
If you are a new hearing aid user understand that adapting to these devices takes time. It’s similar to breaking in a new pair of shoes. They may feel uncomfortable at first, but after a while you may forget that you are wearing them.
New hearing aid users are experiencing sounds that they may not have heard in years, so their surroundings can seem overwhelming. Whether it’s hearing the sound of a car driving by or your favorite music, it may seem strange at first but in about two weeks your brain will be able to adjust to these sounds.
Don’t limit yourself from going where you want due to background noise. Having a customized program can filter background noises and tailor sound levels based on your surroundings.
After Your Hearing Test
Any discomfort with your hearing aids should be addressed with your hearing instrument specialist.
If you notice that your hearing loss continues to worsen, it’s important to get re-tested in order for your hearing instrument specialist to reprogram the hearing aids based on your latest test.
