How do seniors choose hearing aids?

Why is the difference in hearing aids for everyone wearing hearing aids so different?

Most of these problems are hearing aid users with hearing loss between 40 and 55 decibels, as well as most elderly deaf patients or patients with steep drop hearing loss.

For people with mild to moderate hearing loss, because of the low hearing loss, effective listening can be achieved in a quiet state, because the general speech sound can reach 60-70dB in the quiet state, which is greater than the hearing loss. Therefore, sufficient speech intelligibility can be obtained without using a hearing aid, but it is difficult to hear when there are many people and in a noisy environment. In general, the help of speech is not obvious. After all, in the general living environment, people’s communication voice can be above the listening range. Therefore, hearing aids are relatively helpful for users with relatively high hearing loss and those with higher listening requirements, and relatively less for users with light hearing loss.

For senile deafness, you should first understand and understand these two different concepts. You can hear that the hearing aid power is properly amplified, but it is a correct analysis of the brain’s sound information. And judgment. Therefore, the brain response and function of different elderly hearing aid users will appear different hearing aids when using the same hearing aid.

For patients with steep drop hearing loss, because high-frequency hearing loss is serious, and people’s speech intelligibility is closely related to high-frequency hearing, the current research finds that there is still a problem of high-frequency dead zone of the cochlea, so the wearing of the hearing aid has improved. Hearing, but still can not solve the purpose of listening and understanding, understand the language. The use of frequency shifting to achieve audibility expansion or ADRO (Adaptive Dynamic Adjustment) technology is also a new attempt, showing the same degree of deafness, and different deafness properties are also important factors affecting the hearing aid effect.
