If you’re considering hearing aids for the fist time…

Once you’ve picked your new devices, we’ll remind you that adjusting to any new hearing aids is a unique experience, and very unlike getting a new pair of glasses. The work your brain performs to turn noise into speech and other sounds that make sense is complicated. At first, the aids may sound unnatural, loud, or like they’re not helping you understand. You’ll need to give it time—for some people, it takes just a couple of days for things to start to sound clearer than ever.
Digital hearing aids run built-in programs that correspond to your hearing and actively adjust to your immediate environment. It often takes more than one try to find the programs that work best for you. Following your hearing aid purchase, we look forward to seeing you for as many visits as you need (at no cost) to set the programs correctly for you. Your audiologist can fine-tune most hearing aids to a very high degree.
