What Did You Say? Oh just forget it – You need to listen – I'm tired of repeating myself. Repeat it again - Seriously? – Nothing, it doesn't matter or in many cases you are simply ignored. The Frustration is REAL ... Do you ever feel like replying ... "Stop treating me like an IDIOT, I'm NOT stupid, I'm hearing impaired!" If you read the headline and 'felt' the struggle, then you are my people!Read More
Adjusting to your new hearing aids can take several weeks or even months. This process can be time consuming and frustrating. Your hearing device expert will encourage you to be patient with yourself as you become accustomed to the new amplified sounds. Keep in mind that hearing aids will not return your hearing to normal. They can improve your hearing by amplifying soft sounds and by reducing loud background noises.Read More
In the past it has been difficult for me to advise my patients who are hunters. As an audiologist, my job is to help people protect the hearing that they have, but I understand the need for hunters to hear soft sounds while hunting. How do you protect your hearing and amplify soft sounds at the same time? Finally, we have some great options! SoundGear is a 100% digital hearing protection that enhances environmental awareness while also protecting your hearing from gun blasts. There are discreet in-the-canal devices, behind-the-ear and custom options as well.
This is what one of our patients had to say about his experiencing hunting with SoundGear hearing protection: "They were 10 times better than I would have experienced without them. I was able to hear things hunting that I could not hear before. The noise cancelling exceeded my expectation. I wish I had these 20 years ago; I would not have the hearing loss that I have now. They are great." -Mark
