To get the most out of your hearing aids you should practice a few techniques with regard to improving you listening skills.
If you are in an environment where a few different sounds can be heard in your vicinity, practice shifting your concentration to each sound individually.
When you first start wearing hearing aids, make a point of “blocking out” or ignoring the sounds that you don’t find are important.
Focus your attention on the sounds which you find important.
As always, be patient with yourself.
