First time hearing aid users ask: What is it like to wear a hearing aid for the first time?
Most first-time hearing aid wearers have not been hearing well for some time – either consciously or sub-consciously. So, it’s easy to see why many new users experience some complex emotions the first time a device is placed in the ear, turned on, and the usually dampened noises begin to come to life. This is natural, and it’s okay to stop and take in the sounds you’re hearing.
Remember that the objective of the hearing aid is to help make every day sounds audible, clear and pleasant. If this is not the case, let your hearing professional know right away as slight adjustments can be made to the hearing aids to help you hear better. We want you to have a comfortable listening experience from your first fitting.
