What are the performances that need special attention when choosing hearing aids?

有数据显示,截至2013年,我国60岁以上的老年人中,11%有听力下降或耳聋现象,约2000万人;在耳聋的老年人中,中重度耳聋的老年人占到了35%,约为700万。随着我国逐渐步入老龄化社会,因耳聋导致老年人交流障碍和生活质量下降,已成为影响社会发展的重要问题之一。目前助听器康复已成为改善老年人听力障碍、增进社会交流、提高生活质量的主要方法之一。


Hearing aid is a device that helps to listen to sound, through which the sound can be amplified to different degrees.When patients cannot effectively improve their hearing through drugs, surgery and other methods, and accept the doctor’s suggestion to improve communication through hearing aids, they should pay attention to the correct choice of hearing instruments that suit them.The importance of hearing aid sound quality Sound quality is the quality of the sound, which reflects the objective technical level of the sound output of the hearing aid, and at the same time integrates some subjective listening experience of the user. “High sound quality” means that the sound needs to be “high fidelity” during processing.Only “high fidelity” can guarantee high definition. It can also be said that sound quality determines the effect of hearing aids and the quality of hearing aids.

There must be an adaptation period for hearing aids for the first time:

The elderly wear hearing aids have an adaptation period, about three to five months.During the adaptation period, the volume of the hearing aid should be turned down as much as possible. At the beginning, the wearing time should not be too long, just a few minutes each time, and then gradually increase.

If the elderly are looking for invisibility, and the hearing loss has not reached the extreme level, you can consider the in-ear type Hearing aid , Even 100% invisible Hearing aid .However, when selecting and matching, you should pay attention to check whether the external auditory canal of the elderly is damaged, whether there is any in-ear disease, and stop wearing it as soon as possible if it is unsuitable.The in-ear hearing aid maintains the resonant peak of the ear canal at the frequency of the resonance peak of the external auditory canal of a normal person, and because it has a better ability to compensate for high frequencies, the in-ear hearing aid can improve the intelligibility of wearing speech.
