The purpose of this article is to discuss unique aspects of the most common form of hearing loss - age-related hearing loss. We will discuss how basic hearing aids can be the best value investment for this type of hearing loss. As well, we touch on traditional limitations all clients and practitioners face when treating age-related loss, as well as how new hearing aid technology and clinical best practices can be used to achieve more effective results.
You'll also have the opportunity to sample some audio recordings of actual hearing aids, recorded in our clinic (using the world's more beautiful keymar, I might add) in both quiet and in noisy settings. This helps to make ideas discussed below more real, demonstrating how hearing aids will sound when faced with your real world environments.
