Tinnitus and Hearing Loss

Tinnitus and Hearing Loss

hearing_aids

Tinnitus it is still considered one of the big mysteries of the human ear.

High levels of noise exposure will increase the risk of developing tinnitus. Loud music at a concert is an example of this.

Modern life can cause it – anxiety and stress can also cause tinnitus problems.

Ear noise on its own is not a disease. Ear noise can be a symptom of other health issues of both psychological or physical background.

It is often associated with hearing loss.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for a consultation today.

 

Hearing Aid Feedback

What Is Hearing Aid Feedback?

Feedback is that whistling sound that hearing aids can make.

What Can Cause Hearing Aid Feedback?

1) The hearing aid’s earmould may have gotten too small or the hearing aid may not be fitted in the ear properly.
2) Feedback can happen when you hug your child. This is known as ‘leakage’ of the amplified sound.
3) Feedback can be caused by too much ear wax in the ear canal.
4) Certain objects when placed near too close to the microphone of the hearing aid can also cause feedback.

Please feel free to contact me to setup an appointment, if you are currently experiencing feedback with your hearing aids.

Hearing Aids|Wear One Hearing Aid or a Pair?

Hearing Aids - wear only one or a pair?

Hearing Aids|Should I Wear 1 Hearing Aid or a pair?

We have a pair of ears so that we can hear properly.

The same principle applies to hearing aids.

In the majority of cases it would be best to wear two/a pair of hearing aids.

A single hearing aid can never produce the same results of two hearing aids.

This means that the relevant hearing improvements would not be as good as possible.

Your brain requires signal input from both ears to process information properly.

So your two ears work in unison in the same way your brain works with its two halves.

Please contact me for a consultation.

Features you should check for when buying Hearing Aids

Your hearing aids should have the following features present:

Hearing Aids should include a noise reduction feature

  • This makes listening to people speaking easier in noisy places, including the noise wind makes if you are outdoors.

Hearing Aids should include directional microphones

    • These making listening in noisy places easier.
    • These Hearing Aids do this by using two microphones to assist with separating noisy sounds coming from behind you and the important speech sounds coming from the front.

Hearing Aids should include Feedback cancellation

  • This prevents that dreaded whistling sound from hearing aids in the past.

Hearing Aids should include multiple automatic programmes

  • These allow for an effective transition between different listening environments.

Hearing Aids should include multiple channels

  •  The more channels your hearing aids have the better sound quality you would experience, through allowing you to make small adjustments.
