Various Types Of Mini Hearing Aids
Some people with hearing loss are unable to afford expensive hearing aids, and this is why they are unable to hear the programs on the TV. They see people enjoying shows and music, and regret not being able to hear any of the shows clearly.
Some people get tinnitus as they lose hearing with age. The theory is that the brain notices the loss in hearing at a certain frequency and so that sound fills the “gap.” But, this has not been proven. For this type of tinnitus and noise-exposure tinnitus, Starkey Hearing Aids which are specially programmed to amplify sounds in the area of your hearing loss have marked success in reducing tinnitus.
It is though that just above half of people that are afflicted by noise in ears experience some level of hearing loss. Therefore, hearing tests are central before a proper diagnosis of tinnitus might be determined.
The only difference between a RITE hearing aid and a BTE hearing aid is that the RITE has a receiver at the end of the tubing. Receivers are normally very reliable but there are occasions where it is actually the receiver that is creating the problem. If this is the case then it is best to call your audiologist and request a new receiver.
Hearing aides are delicate and sturdy at the same time. In other words, don’t drop them on purpose. On accident once in a while is one thing, but all the time is something completely different. Also, remember that extreme cold or heat will affect how the hearing aids work, too.
Oh, and we don’t have to worry about changing those batteries either, so that’s another benefit, and as a bonus, the unit we found came with a portable rechargeable carrying case. How cool is that?
Where only the victim hears the sounds, we call this subjective tinnitus. Where the sounds can also be heard by a specialist using an audio instrument, we call that objective tinnitus. Subjective is the most common form. Typical sounds are; ringing, roaring, whooshing, buzzing, humming, hissing, clicking, ticking, etc.
Auditory aids will not only improve this precious sense but they also work to preserve our brain. Your brain works along with the hearing mechanism to process sounds and speech and allow it to work at its best.
