When people begin to experience difficulty hearing, they may think a prescription hearing aid is the only option. Luckily for your wallet – it’s not. A hearing amplifier comes with many benefits. People can experience a better quality of sound without paying the price of a traditional prescription hearing aid. Considering scheduling a checkup with your doctor to discuss getting a proper hearing test. Here are some of the benefits of improving the volume and quality of sound by using a hearing amplifier.

Hearing All the Details At a Meeting or Doctors Appointment

Chances are that if a topic is brought up for discussion at a business or work-related meeting, the information being discussed is of great value. This is also true of doctor appointments when missing crucial information about treatment or diagnosis could be disastrous.

Seniors with hearing loss may not hear everything their doctors tell them, and research suggests that could raise the risk of medical errors.

The University College Cork School of Medicine in Ireland found that of 100 patients 60 and older, 43 reported mishearing a doctor or nurse in an inpatient or community health care setting – lending vulnerability to unintended errors. Their research also found that improved patient hearing and communication could prevent 36 percent of medical errors.

Get on Track

With the use of a hearing aid amplifier, you will pick up important details and comments that could have otherwise been missed.  In a work setting, this could have a negative impact on your individual performance and even compromise your co-workers and other members of the team. Your responsibilities at work can become more difficult because you missed out on a part of a key discussion. Often every word matters at major business meetings.

Better Communication with Family

Communication is a key part of any relationship, whether it is with a spouse, children, grandchildren, or other members who play a significant role in your life. Better hearing means better communication overall.

Avoid Misunderstandings

Without the use of a hearing amplifier, words can be misunderstood, if they are heard at all. This can lead to negative feelings and emotions of loved ones. A simple misunderstanding has the ability to produce an outcome that could have been avoided. It can also lead to a missed opportunity to create memories that could last a lifetime. Using a hearing amplifier could be the fix for simple hearing problems that may get in the way of communicating with your loved ones.

Safety On the Road

Regardless if you are enjoying a simple walk or a relaxing cruise in your car, the inability to hear properly can lead to horrible consequences on the road. You may miss the sirens or the warnings by other drivers.

Tune Into the Surroundings

Everyone knows how it feels to be on a walk and be consumed with thoughts and ideas that take over the focus of concentration. That alone can add difficulty to noticing a change in your surroundings. When you add a loss of hearing, it can make the issue even more severe. By using a hearing amplifier, you will be able to pick up on the sound of an approaching vehicle or roadwork. Failure to hear these situations could end tragically.

Children and Grandchildren

One of the greatest joys in life is being able to raise children and being a part of your grandchildren’s lives growing up. Their soft voices are oftentimes difficult to hear when you have hearing loss.

Sounds of Joy

The simple sound of a child’s voice can often make all the frustrations of the day disappear. If difficulty hearing is something you struggle with, that joy can be missed. With the use of a hearing amplifier, you will be able to pick up on the squeakiness of a laugh, the tone of happiness in a voice, and concern or worry in a child’s question. By improving your hearing, you give yourself a better opportunity to play a more significant role in your grandchild’s life.

Helpful Information

There are few things in life that can be more frustrating than trying to accomplish something you do not know. Difficulty hearing can make matters even worse. It is crucial to be able to hear specific details and product information.

Get the Details

Whether you are asking someone for directions to a certain destination, making improvements to your home, or tackling an everyday task, an inability to hear can add to your struggle. With the assistance of a hearing amplifier, you can get to hear the details you need. Save both time and effort by hearing instructions or directions clearly. This will allow you to receive information without repeating a question and pay more attention to the task at hand.

Enjoying the Sound of the World Around You

There are few things in life more relaxing than the soft sounds of nature. Having a beautiful view to look at is wonderful, but adding volume to the sound can make it amazing. Plus, there are daily sounds that entertain us and make life better, such as an upbeat song or funny TV show.

Basic and Beautiful

The sound of leaves rustling in the wind, the chatter of birds, squirrels, and other small animals, all can lead to peace and serenity. Without a hearing amplifier, these sounds can become just fragments of the imagination. Use a hearing amplifier to help you enjoy being a part of the world that you live in and enjoy the sounds that are too often taken for granted. This may even include listing to your favorite songs and watching a classic movie or entertaining television show.

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.
