Q: Is it really necessary to get two hearing aids or is one enough?

A: Audiocorp always recommends using two hearing aids in order for you to enjoy optimal hearing. When you use both ears to hear, you are able to localize sounds and hear more clearly in noisy environments. The sound quality will also be more natural. We can’t expect one ear to do the job of two, especially when there is hearing loss in both ears.

Q: I didn’t like the original hearing aid I purchased years ago. Have they improved in recent years?

A: Innovations in hearing aid technology have drastically improved these devices in just a few years. Do you remember the annoying whistling sound from older devices? That is now a thing of the past. Another exciting development is the ability for you to hear speech in noisy situations. There are even devices that allow you to answer your cell phone directly through your hearing aids – complete hands free! You can also control the volume of your television without impacting the sound level for others in the room. Remote controls are used to adjust the volume. Along with these advances, hearing aids have become more comfortable and discreet.

Q: I was told a hearing aid couldn’t help my hearing loss. What can I do?

A: Hearing aid technology has come a very long way in recent years, even within the last five years. Hearing aids are now able to assist patients with a wide range of hearing loss. We have found that more and more people are having great success hearing and communicating. You can actively participate in conversations again. Come see us at Audiocorp and let our clinical audiologists find a custom solution for you. We can help you find good amplification with a comfortable fit and price.

Q: Why do I have this ringing in my ears when I’m trying to go to sleep?

A: The ringing, buzzing, pulsing, whistling or roaring sound you hear is called tinnitus and can be caused by a variety of conditions and is a common symptom of hearing loss. Whether you experience tinnitus occasionally or constantly, we encourage you to make an appointment with Audiocorp. Let us give you a complete hearing assessment to determine if the cause is due to hearing loss or other factors. While there is no known cure for this condition, our skilled audiologists can help you effectively manage it.
