Before any hearing aid fittings are conducted, your audiologist will give you a hearing test to determine the softest sound you can hear and the volume of sound that is too loud. This is done so that we will know how much gain your hearing aid has to provide to amplify soft sounds and how much it has to compress loud sounds.
During your evaluation, we will discuss the variety of hearing aid styles, identifying features that set the hearing aids apart from one another. You will be provided with recommendations of which hearing aids may be the most appropriate for you. This recommendation will be based on the results of your hearing evaluation and specific communication needs. If a customized hearing device is necessary, ear mold impressions will be made of your ears.
