HEARING AID FITTING
To ensure a proper fit with your device, you may need a hearing test to identify your hearing frequency levels in order to provide proper amplification. Your specialist will make recommendations based on your hearing evaluations. Once your hearing loss is determined, he or she can then choose the best aid for you to use. The correct fitting will be determined by how comfortably the hearing aids fit in your ears and how well the devices amplify sound. An ear measurement test will determine the sound pressure level in your canal to see if adjustments need to made. Also, you will be guided through some of the advanced features of the device, such as wireless syncing technology. Once you receive your hearing aid, a future hearing aid fitting will be required to ensure that your hearing aid remains perfect for you.
HEARING AID PROGRAMMING AND TUNING
A computer software program is required to manage the hearing aids and adjust them to match your level of hearing loss. The software has basic tuning and fine-tuning capabilities that your specialist will use to determine and set the most comfortable levels. In addition, the hearing aids can be further tuned without using a software program. To do this, the specialist must have the correct instruments. They’ll have you listen to various frequencies and then make adjustments accordingly.
