Getting used to your hearing aids
When you are first fitted with a hearing device, sounds may seem too loud! This is because you have adjusted over time to having less hearing. A little discomfort is a normal part of becoming accustomed to your new hearing ability, and there is nothing to worry about if you experience the following:
- Hear echoes
- Feel like your ears are blocked up
- Notice your voice sounds a little louder
- Feel tired due to the new sounds being pick up
Your brain can take some time to get used to these changes, but your ears will soon adjust to your new hearing aids - you just need to give them some time.
A little persistence goes a long way
The more you wear your hearing devices, the more sounds you will hear. These will gradually become part of your everyday life. That is why we have put together a specialised programme to help you gradually get used to your hearing device.
