Often people know their hearing has deteriorated but they don’t want to wear a hearing aid because they think it will be the bulky, obvious and uncomfortable ‘beige banana’ of the past. The Clinicians at Connect Hearing often spend as much time working on the attitudes of people with hearing loss as they do fitting and fine-tuning hearings aids.
Modern hearing instruments are discrete and cosmetically appealing, and many are small enough to fit invisibly inside the ear itself. Hearing instruments today are extremely sophisticated - they are miniature, programmable computers. Each instrument can be tailored and programmed to the needs of the individual.
In some cases it takes just one visit for a new hearing aid, somtimes a few visits to get the comfort just right. But the days of the bulky hearing aid that drew attention to the wearer by its size and the noise it created are gone.
