     More than 28 million Americans suffer from hearing loss, and approximately 95% of these individuals can correct the problem with the use of hearing aids.  Hearing aid users report higher levels of involvement in social activities, fewer worries, and more positive family experiences than those who have uncorrected hearing loss. Be one of the 95%, by visiting one of our audiologists. Let us, help you have positive life experiences!

Hearing Aid Technology ... There are essentially two levels of hearing aid technology, analog, or conventional, and digital Analog has been around for decades and provides limited adjustment capability for hearing loss. Analog is the least expensive of the two.  Digital technology is more sophisticated and gives the audiologist maximum control over sound quality and sound processing characteristics. Digital technology allows the audiologist to customize the sound of your hearing aids to what you need and want to hear. 

 

Two Hearing Aids or One? ... The need for one hearing aid or two should be determined by you and your audiologist.  For most people with hearing loss, binaural (two) hearing aids offer substantial improvement under both quiet and noisy conditions, along with a better sense of direction for locating the sound source.
