In parts one and two of this three-part blog series, we’ve covered the basics of what hearing loss is, the signs and symptoms, causes of hearing loss, common features of a hearing aid, and how a hearing aid device can help you.  Now in part three, we’ll learn about the benefits of wearing a hearing aid, how to take care of a hearing aid, and where you can find affordable hearing aids online.

 What are the benefits of wearing a hearing aid?Portrait of happy senior couple standing with arms outstretched on the beach

Treating your hearing loss with a hearing aid can dramatically increase your quality of life and open the world back up to you. You will be able to do things like communicate more easily with your family and friends, hear soft sounds you haven’t heard in a long time, listen to the television or radio at an acceptable level, and be able to communicate easier in a noisy environment like a restaurant or in a large group of people.

There are limitations to what hearing aids can do for you, however. Hearing aids do not restore normal hearing. Unlike eyeglasses, which can restore your vision to a perfect 20/20, hearing aid devices can only improve your hearing – not restore it completely.

 Getting used to wearing hearing aid devices takes time.

It takes everyone some amount of time to get used to wearing a hearing aid. There will be sounds you will hear that you may not have heard in an awfully long time, and that can take some getting used to! Wearing them regularly in order to get familiar with the different features, learning how to put them on and take them off correctly, and testing them in different environments is important to fully maximize their incredible benefits.

Sound Environment Settings
Programs or environmental settings that allow you to optimize performance for noisy, quiet, or social situations
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
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.
Wear your device all day and charge when you go to bed. No need to handle tiny hearing aid batteries
Smartphone Compatible
Adjust your Otofonix Bluetooth Hearing Aid with your smartphone via the Otofonix App. No need to draw attention to your hearing aid; you can adjust it by using only your phone.
Personalized Hearing
Using the Otofonix App, you can customize your hearing aid to meet your unique hearing loss profile. It's like having an audiologist in your living room.
