Lifestyle is a key factor that dictates the hearing aid style and what one should go in for. This is because every person has different requirements and the last thing considered in a hearing aid selection is the one-size-fits-all approach. Your preferences and activities you do on a daily basis as well the environment in which you live or work, the gatherings you attend, the hobbies you have are closely factored in while coming to a decision about what your final hearing aid should be like.

How Does a Hearing
Aid Fitting Take Place?

The journey right from deciding to go in for hearing aids right until
the day you begin wearing the aids is one that can be divided into three steps. 

The selection process

Devices that are going to be a part of you for the majority of the day and will be catering to an integral sense of yours need to be chosen with precision. 

Hearing tests are conducted during this process to determine which part is affected and the degree of hearing loss. In addition to this, the audiologist will ascertain the softest sound you are able to hear and the loudest pitch. This will help them determine how much amplification the aid needs.

The style of the hearing aid is the next factor. As in the case of any device, people’s style and shape preferences differ. The person’s lifestyle is also taken into account. Someone with a passion for music will have different aids and filters compared to someone with a passion for reading.

The fitting process at our clinic involves:

Sophisticated equipment to accurately measure the fitting parameters required to match your hearing needs. Audiologist programs the hearing aids precisely to match electro-acoustic characteristics. The hearing aid fitting is done by asking the subject to wear demonstration hearing aids for a few weeks. The audiologist will keep a close check on whether these aids are up to the person’s requirements, likings, whether there is discomfort, pain, if the hearing has improved and if any fine-tuning is needed.

The adjustment process

If present, the changes listed above will be made to the hearing aids. You are now presented with the final pair of aids that you will wear and have been crafted to your requirements. 

The audiologist recommends that you wear the aids for a few hours at a time and then transition to wear these for a day. It is not only your ears that need to get used to the aids but also the brain. Perception of sound is something that the auditory center in the brain needs to get accustomed to. 

The journey with hearing aids is a slow but steady progression to a better quality of life!
