Are you suffering with any of these symptoms?
Difficulty understanding speech: Struggling to comprehend conversations, especially in noisy environments, can be a sign of hearing loss. People may frequently ask others to repeat themselves or misunderstand what is being said.
Muffled or distorted sound perception: Hearing loss can lead to sounds becoming unclear, muffled, or distorted. It may feel like certain frequencies or parts of speech are missing or difficult to hear.
Increasing volume: Individuals with hearing loss may frequently increase the volume of their television, radio, or other audio devices to hear more clearly. Others around them may find the volume uncomfortably loud.
Social withdrawal: Hearing loss can make it challenging to participate in conversations, leading to feelings of isolation or frustration. Some individuals may avoid social situations or become withdrawn as a result.
Tinnitus: Tinnitus refers to the perception of ringing, buzzing, or other sounds in the ears or head, unrelated to any external source. It can be a common accompanying symptom of hearing loss.
Misinterpreting sounds: People with hearing loss may misinterpret certain sounds or words. They might confuse similar-sounding words or have difficulty distinguishing speech from background noise.

A hearing aid is an amplifying device which is custom programmed in order to amplify any type of hearing loss. The hearing aid will generate a prescription based on an individual’s hearing loss and then look to provide optimal listening performance in a multitude of environments including background noise through its noise cancellation and directional microphones. What you are actually getting is an incredibly sophisticated device which is capable of filtering multiple noise sources to allow you to hear in any environment effectively.
Hearing aids are required when a patient is starting to struggle to hear in certain situations. This may be in simple one to one situations or more complex background noise environments with multiple noise or sounds interfering with speech processing.
Hearing aids work in a very sophisticated way, they are more then just amplifying sound. The processing chips in the most advanced hearing aids are constantly monitoring the environment to provide you with the best speech in noise processing available. The hearing aids have significant noise reduction capacity to allow you to hear in even the most demanding listening situations
Hearing aids come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. The two primary categories are receiver in the canal aids or in the canal aids which sit inside the cavity. Both types of devices are very discrete to the extent that most hearing aid users find that most people don’t notice they actually wear hearing aids.
A hearing aids most significant feature is its capacity to filter out background noise. Most hearing aid users find this to be the most difficult listening environment. Generally speaking the more expensive a hearing aid the more acute its ability to filter out unwanted background noise. Most manufacturers spend tremendous amount of research and development in fine tuning the capacity of a hearing aid to perform well in more demanding listening environments.
The cost of hearing aids can vary dependant to the level of technology a patient wishes to acquire. This is dependant on the patients lifestyle and expectations from a hearing aid. The demands of an individual who just wants to hear the tv better over someone who still works, socialises, or attends meetings will be quite different.
We have found from experience that patients who wear hearing aids regularly are certainly less aware of the perceptual sound of their tinnitus. This is because the hearing aids provide an alternative sound for the brain to focus on thus alleviating the perception of a patient’s tinnitus.
Research and evidence based peer reviews have suggested that the effort required to listen causes cognitive fatigue. This means the brain is having to work harder then it should in engaging with the listening pathway in the auditory cortex. PET scans have shown other parts of the brain are thus having to engage in the listening process. There is link between cognitive decline,Alzheimer’s,and dementia in patients with hearing loss.
Hearing aids generally whistle mainly due to two reasons. The patient may be presenting with occluding ear wax in the canal.There may be a programming issue with the aid not providing an adequate seal to contain the sound in the ear canal.
