    Why Binaural Hearing Aids are important

    Why there is a need to wear 2 Hearing Aids? If you discover that you are suffering from a Hearing Loss, then have to visit an Audiologist to check your Hearing Loss Condition. It is always recommended to wear 2 Hearing Aids as it will improve the Hearing loss condition and enables better Hearing. Being an Audiologist we identified a  Hearing Loss condition case about 2 years back. Women with an age group of 54 years visited our Hearing Solutions clinic. Initially, she was discovered with mild Hearing loss. She was recommended for wearing 2 Hearing Aids but she insisted to go with only one Hearing aids, for the one she was facing the problem with. After 2 years she revisited the Hearing Clinic and noticed that her Hearing condition was improved to one Ear while Hearing condition decreased to another ear. The decrease in the hearing condition is because of using a monaural hearing aid rather than a binaural hearing aid. 

    At is this point, she was strongly recommended to wear Binaural Hearing Aid. Finally, she was replaced with 2 Hearing aids. She was elated and said”  “I can get by with one but Oh God! having two is so much better for my hearing.”  with the difference in hearing and regretted to skip 2 Hearing Aids. 

    Why there is a Need to wear 2 Hearing Aids?

    Our Hearing condition is linked up with the Brain process. Proper Hearing from both the ears will send all the important information directly to the brain that will help in better Hearing and Understanding. Hearing Loss will condition i.e any damage in the ears or any problem with the hearing will not allow the sound waves to reach the brain or will not be able to process. In such conditions, Hearing Aids will amplify the sound waves and process better Hearing. By wearing hearing aids in both ears you improve the distance that you can from. You are able to localize sounds better. Most importantly Hearing Aids will improve the ability to understand the conversation.

    Is it mandatory to wear the 2 Hearing Aids.?

    Hearing Loss is different from one person to another. Wearing 2 hearing aids will depend on the degree of Hearing Loss a person is facing. If a person has a hearing problem with one ear then an Audiologist will recommend you to wear only one hearing aid. That is why going for a Hearing Test at regular intervals and considering the audiogram is always help you in dealing with the issues related to Hearing Loss. 

    Being an Audiologist, I would have always recommended visiting a Hearing Clinic when you see the basic signs of Hearing Loss like

    • Asking for repetitions
    • Trouble in hearing over the Telephone. 
    • Turning on the TV volume high 
    • Misunderstanding the speech 
    • Thinking that others seem to mumbles
    • Limited, poor, or no speech
    • Difficult in Learning in Children 
    • Fails to respond to the Background noise or any Speech. 
    • Does not react to loud sounds
    • Unable to experiment babbling of New sounds

    In today’s digital hearing aids often the two hearing aids work together to help improve your ability to hear in a noisy environment. This creates a more natural sound and makes life better.
