Acclimatisation To Hearing Aids

When you are first fitted with a hearing aid, it will take time to adjust to the new sounds you hear. Getting used to wearing hearing aids takes some patience and practice. At the beginning you will experience that everything sounds different than what you are used to and you will hear things which you have not heard at that level for many years. We will spend time with you making sure you get the best hearing solution for you, which is why we are the best hearing aid providers in Melbourne.

Here are some tips on how to get used to your new hearing aids:

  • For the first few days, it is best to start wearing your hearing aids at home for just a few hours a day.
  • Gradually wear it for longer periods and listen to the various sounds around you
  • If your hearing aid has more than one listening program, try the alternative programs in different situations.
  • Start listening to voices you know and the sound of your own voice
  • Try wearing hearing aids in slightly noisier places
  • After the first week, common sounds and voices should sound familiar again. Now you can start wearing your hearing aids for longer periods of time and in the different situations of your everyday life.
