What's next?

Where to start:

You will need to have a complete hearing test and comprehensive evaluation –

this includes an audiogram, speech testing, uncomfortable loudness level testing, information about your lifestyle, listening environments, needs and difficulties,

your main goal for improved hearing, and medical history as well as any concerns

you may have.

 

You should receive an explanation of the results (which are used to determine

which features would be best suited to your specific needs).

 

Your specialist will provide you with information on the style, technology and

features best suited to your hearing needs.

Learn more about your first visit

  • Hearing aids should be custom fit to your ears and your specific hearing needs

  • If you have a loss in both ears, you need correction for both ears (just like eyeglasses)

  • It takes time to get used to amplified hearing – you wear your aids regularly to get the maximum benefits; you need to become familiar with their features and learn to adjust them in different environments – it is a rehabilitation process

  • Success with hearing aids involves more than just the device. In addition to effectively communicating your concerns and needs with your specialist, the experience and training of your specialist helps in working to achieve your optimum benefit.

  • Beware of misleading claims and have realistic expectations – hearing aids cannot restore “normal” hearing (unlike eyeglasses) but they can greatly improve your ability to hear and communicate; hearing aids cannot eliminate background noise, they can reduce & filter extraneous noise and help to make the spoken word easier to understand

  • Prices that sound too good to be true usually are – look for fine print

  • The different styles of hearing aids are not just for looks, each style is designed to correct different types of losses and each style will have their own set of pros and cons

  • Keep an open mind regarding what you may need to help improve your hearing – questions from your specialist will help determine the products that will best serve your needs (technology, price and/or features)

  • Don’t put off your appointment due to financial concerns – your professional can help guide you to options available

Key points to remember

  • Which style & features best meet my needs?

  • Do the benefits of the newer technology justify the higher price?

  • How long is the warranty period and can it be extended?

  • What is covered under the warranty?

  • Is future maintenance included?

  • Will I get copies of all the paperwork?

  • Total cost?

  • What is the consumer protection in your state?

  • What fees are non-refundable if instruments are returned?

  • Are upgrades available?

Questions I should ask

  • Your hearing aids should be easy for you to wear and use as well as provide the best compensation for your loss (within your budget)

  • You should have a good rapport with your specialist – your relationship with your specialist is key to your success (are they someone who is knowledgeable, trustworthy, experienced and empathetic to your needs)

  • Will your Hearing Healthcare Professional provide you with the training you need to get the most out of your instruments?

  • Is your specialist available when you need help?

  • How long will you have to wait to get an appointment?
