A hearing aid is designed to make everyday sounds loud enough to be heard. Your hearing test will be saved in the hearing aid and used to create your prescription. This means that the hearing aid will only make sounds louder where you need it. When the aid is matched to your hearing it will make sounds, especially voices clearer and easier to follow.
People with hearing difficulties often experience problems hearing in background noise. Your hearing aid can help to pick out voices and wherever possible reduce background noise.
Through regular use you will learn to make the most of your hearing aid and as a result will perform better in difficult situations.
