New Hearing Aids for the New Year

Each New Year, many of us try to focus on ways we can improve ourselves, or “upgrade” our lives in some way. If you’re like us, you’ve tried the New Year’s resolutions that revolve around eating better and exercising more. While these are great … why not try something different this year and upgrade your hearing aids instead? If you think your hearing aids could use a special touch, read further to see if you need an upgrade and how this is able to improve your life.

Hearing aids should enhance your hearing experience, if you have experienced one or more of the below scenarios it may be time to book in to see us at Hearing Sense.

You have trouble listening in noisy environments or over the phone.

If you have noticed that hearing has become more difficult than normal, even with your hearing aids in, it might be a good time for an upgrade. Especially if you are wearing hearing aids from 4 – 5 years ago, technology has made leaps and bounds towards making listening easier. Newer hearing aids now have technology that can sense what it is you are listening to, and then amplify that sound while dulling annoying background noise, all automatically. In terms of phone conversations, many wireless hearing aid options are now available to stream your phone conversations and even TV shows directly into your hearing aids without the need for something extra hanging around your neck.

Your hearing aids don’t seem to be working as well as they used to. 

No matter the age of your hearing aids, it is important to attend yearly hearing aid checks to ensure your hearing aids are still tuned to match your unique hearing profile. If it seems like your hearing aids just aren’t making listening as easy as they used to, or aren’t quite doing the trick, schedule a hearing check-up. You may just need a simple tune-up to readjust the minute settings on your devices. If this does not help, it may be time for an upgrade and the best thing is you can trial the new aids and directly compare to your old ones in different situations.

You feel your old hearing aids are bulky, embarrassing, or unsightly.

If your hearing aids are making you feel self-conscious about the way you look, it is probably time for an upgrade. The hearing aids of today are extremely sleek and almost undetectable. There are also many options that sit completely in your ear canal and are totally invisible. Many of these hearing aids are still packed with as much and even more technology to make listening and communicating as stress-free as possible. Some hearing aids such as the Phonak Lyric are completely invisible and are worn for weeks without being removed. This is not the only option of completely invisible hearing aids either. Book an appointment with us today to discuss which new hearing aids may be right for you to upgrade your style.

Whether you already wear hearing aids or are just beginning to notice some of the early signs of hearing loss, it is a good idea to schedule a comprehensive hearing assessment this New Year. Start the year off right by knowing that you are taking the best care of your hearing possible, and treating your hearing loss with the most effective aid for your unique situation. Give us a call on 8331 8047 to book a FREE appointment.
