Question: How can hearing aids assist me in a noisy restaurant or on the job?
Answer: Most people do struggle to hear in noisy environments, even those with normal hearing. However, these are the places where hearing aids can really help most people. Newer hearing aid technology is designed to recognize speech and automatically adjust to reduce noise or enhance speech as much as possible. While noise cannot be eliminated, hearing aids are now better able to reduce noise than ever before. There are different hearing aids for various environments and our doctors can help determine which is best for you. Perhaps a trial period, during which you might try hearing aids in these situations, would help you hear the difference.
