Common hearing problems from people in their 40s onwards

common-hearing-complaints

With more than 20% of the adult population in America suffering from some form of hearing loss as they get into their forties and beyond, we’ve heard of plenty of hearing problems here at Otofonix.

However, not all of them require the use of a hearing aid, so before you start to go down the route of seeing which of our hearing aids would be best suited to you, here are some common hearing complaints explained and the best course of action needed to remedy them.

Hearing loss

As we get older our hearing prowess begins to wane, and we may find ourselves straining to hear our favorite TV shows, conversations, and quietly spoken instructions from others. This is an entirely normal part of the aging process. A visit to your ear doctor’s office will help you determine the level of hearing loss that you’re experiencing, and what type of hearing aid would be the best option to help you regain clear sound. Never let someone talk you into purchasing a hearing aid without a hearing test.

Tinnitus

The symptoms of tinnitus include an annoying ringing in the ears that is usually accompanied by some degree of hearing loss. Sadly, if not treated quickly, the problem can increase and become a hindrance to daily life, so it’s a good idea to see your ear doctor before it gets any worse.

Tinnitus cannot be treated by the Otofonix range of hearing aids, as they help amplify sounds. Your ENT doctor will recommend a course of treatment.

Ear infections

Ear infections can also affect our ability to hear speech and sound, and can often be rather painful.

Caused by common colds, the ear canal and the area behind the eardrum called the middle ear can both be affected. Symptoms include itchiness, pain, discharge and hearing loss. The ear canal can feel blocked, which stops us from being able to hear properly, but with medical treatment from your doctor, such as ear drops or antibiotics, infections usually clear up quickly. This means that your hearing will soon return to normal.

Keeping your ears clean and dry can also promote ear health and prevent common hearing problems occurring. If you are suffering from hearing problems, always consult your doctor and get a checkup to verify what the cause of your hearing loss is as this will then impact on which type of hearing aid you choose.

Digital Sound Processor
All Otofonix Hearing Aids are 100% Digital because they all use a DSP Chip. Without a DSP, noise-canceling is not possible.
Noise Canceling
Uses a digital algorithm to reduce background noise more effectively in noisy and challenging environments.
Directional Microphone
Makes it easier to focus on sounds coming from in front of you, and allows for more advanced and effective noise cancellation
Telecoil
A telecoil acts as a receiving antenna for your hearing aids. When you connect with a sound system of a theater or church, you get amplified sounds delivered directly into your hearing aids. So no matter where you are in the theater, you automatically have the best seat in the house. Only the sound from the hearing loop's microphone is amplified, while background noise is shut out.
