Hearing aids will make the sounds you have difficulty hearing clearer. Within a hearing aid is a microphone that detects sounds around you. The hearing aid then enhances those sounds, filtering out the background noise and plays it into your ear.
You may find adjusting to these new sounds a little overwhelming at first. As hearing loss is usually a gradual process, getting it all back in one go may feel strange. Sounds can be a little sharp and you may be more aware of background noise. However, this is completely normal. It's expected when you start wearing hearing aids, and the more you wear them the quicker you'll get used to them.
We recommend you wear your hearing aids all day, every day. Some people will feel comfortable doing this straight away, but if you don't that's fine. If you need to take them out for a break you can, but make sure you put them back in after an hour or so to keep building up your hearing time.Store Locator
