What causes hearing loss?


The number one cause of hearing loss is excessive noise. The normal aging process is a close second and it starts earlier than you might think. Changes in hearing begin at age 20, with significant decline in hearing ability as early as 40 years of age. At age 65 and older, one in three people has some type of hearing impairment.

Common signs and symptoms of hearing loss


Asking others to repeat themselves Turning up the television or radio volume to levels others find too loud Having trouble understanding conversation in noisy places Feeling like other people are always mumbling

excessive noise
(construction, rock music, machinery, etc.)

injury to the head or ear ototoxic reaction to drugs or cancer (antibiotics,


chemotherapy, radiation)

Hearing loss hurts you and your loved ones


Untreated hearing loss can be harmful to relationships. The inability to communicate effectively with others leads to isolation and alienation. And when someone with hearing loss needs to communicate, it can require enormous effort, which in turn can result in: Fatigue Irritability and anger Tension and stress Depression Loneliness Withdrawing from or avoiding certain social situations Untreated hearing loss can also affect your ability to perform at work. When you miss important information in meetings or respond inappropriately, your colleagues may assume its a performance problem rather than hearing loss. Unfortunately your opportunity for promotion and perhaps lifelong earning power can be affected by poor hearing health. But theres good news! In many cases, treatment of hearing loss can resolve these issues.

Learn how hearing aids can help

Whats it like to have hearing loss?


Its not just like plugging your ears. A person with normal hearing can hear quiet, medium and loud sounds that vary from low pitch to high pitch. When you have hearing loss you often lose the ability to hear higherpitched sounds, like womens and childrens voices or consonants like T, S and F. Even though you still may be able to hear strong vowel sounds such as A, E and I, speech becomes harder to comprehend.

THIS IS HOW SPEECH SOUNDS TO PEOPLE WITH HEARING LOSS


How hearing aids work
Hearing aids are tiny electronic devices that sit in or behind your ear. In a nutshell, they receive sound, process and amplify it, and deliver it right into your inner ear, where it is sent to the brain.

Hearing Analysis: Your hearing professional will perform a visual examination of your ear canal, evaluate your current hearing level, and if you do have hearing loss, they will diagnose and discuss with you the type of hearing loss. An impression of your ear anatomy may also be made with putty to determine if certain styles (like invisible hearing aids) are appropriate. Lifestyle Discussion: You will be asked about the types of places (and sound environments) you frequent to determine the range of sound settings and technological features appropriate for your lifestyle. Hearing Aid Options: You will see the different hearing aids that are appropriate for your level of hearing loss as well as your preferences for size, color and invisibility. Budget Discussion: Your hearing professional will help you narrow down your choice of hearing instruments based on the investment you are comfortable making. You will also discuss insurance and/or financing options.

Incredible advancements in technology


Not only do hearing aids look more sleek and provide more comfort than ever, but the technology inside is amazing! Managing your everyday environments and providing sound comfort in noisy situations and even easier listening on the phone are key improvements over hearing aids from years ago.  Wireless hearing aids Without a doubt, the latest news in hearing aids is wireless technology. Wireless, in this context, means that your hearing aids have a feature that creates a direct wireless connection to media sound sources like your television, stereo, computer or phone.  Invisible hearing aids For many people, one of the greatest barriers to seeking help for hearing loss is that they dont want to be seen wearing hearing aids. But thanks to new advances in hearing aid technology, you dont have to be. Depending on your level of hearing loss, you may be able to select hearing aids that fit invisibly in your ear canal.

Take a closer look at the hearing aid styles available today


Hearing aids come in a wide range of styles. There are many factors your hearing specialist will consider before recommending a hearing aid style, including your hearing needs, your lifestyle, and your budget. He or she will also take into account your preferences for the fit and look of the hearing aids.

Invisible-in-the-Canal (IIC)
This custom-fitted style is inserted farther into the ear canal than other styles, so its completely invisible when worn. IIC hearing aids are designed to be removed daily to promote good ear health.

One hearing aid or two?


Human hearing is designed for two ears. The technical term is binaural listening, and the auditory system is wired for it to allow for the best possible hearing and understanding. If a professional evaluation by a hearing professional indicates that you have hearing loss in both ears, two hearing aids may be recommended. While it may be tempting to try to limit the cost by going with a single hearing aid, the truth is that one hearing aid simply cant do the job of two.

Completely-in-Canal (CIC)
CIC hearing instruments are custom-made to fit completely in the ear canal. Only the tip of a small plastic handle shows outside the canal, which is used to insert and remove the instrument.

Receiver-in-Canal (RIC)
Barely visible when worn, the RIC style is an instrument in which the receiver, or speaker, is inside the ear canal. Thin electrical wires are used instead of a plastic acoustical tube, reducing distortion. RIC hearing aids provide a comfortable, open fit.

Here are the benefits of using two hearing aids:


Full listening experience Give your brain the information it needs Help you detect sound direction Contribute to better listening Reduce the need for volume Help you separate voices from noise Mask tinnitus Deliver higher satisfaction with hearing aids overall Provide more relaxed listening

Behind-the-Ear (BTE)
The hearing technology is housed in a casing that rests behind the ear. A clear plastic acoustical tube directs amplified sound into an earbud or a customized earmold that is fitted inside the ear canal. Some manufacturers also offer a mini BTE or a Power BTE.

What satisfied Hearing-Aid.com patients have to say


My husband has occupational hearing loss from working around machinery, and it was getting very frustrating trying to communicate with him when he couldnt hear me. I used Hearing-Aid.com to locate a hearing clinic in our area. The audiologist was very good. It actually turned out that we both needed hearing aids! We both got modern-looking BTE styles, and now we hear each other much better. Eilleen, SC

Below are key features to consider when evaluating hearing aid options.

Channels Fast-Acting Noise Control

Channels on hearing aids allow a hearing professional to create different settings for different sound frequency ranges. People who visit a wide variety of noisy environments will need more channels than others with quiet lifestyles. Some digital hearing aids have a noise reduction system that operates fast enough to reduce noise levels during pauses in speech. Wireless hearing aids can create a direct wireless connection to media sources like your television, stereo, computer or phone. There are several wireless formats to choose from: N  ear-eld magnetic induction (NFMI) systems stream audio to a device you must wear around your neck.

Wireless Capability

9  00 MHz Radio-Frequency (RF) systems stream audio from a small device plugged into your TV. 2  .4 GHz Radio-Frequency (RF) systems function similarly to 900 MHz, but may encounter interference from common household devices like computer networks, garage door openers and phones.

Water & Oil Resistance Feedback Management Telephone Feature

Water- and oil-resistant hearing aids are designed for active adults, with a nano-coating to protect hearing aid components from sweat, moisture and, in some cases, earwax. Older hearing aids may buzz and/or whistle at certain times (called feedback). Most of todays digital hearing aids incorporate feedback management as a standard feature, which virtually eliminates that issue. Standard on most of todays hearing aids, telephone compatibility can help you hear better on the phone.
