How to use hearing devices – handy tips and tricks

For first-time hearing aid users, this course contains some useful hints. The adaptation would be much faster and easier if you stick to them.

1. Do not panic at loud noises

Ordinary sounds that most people don't notice, such as the ticking of a clock, the running of a refrigerator, street noises, or the sound of water in pipes, can be extremely irritating to you. Don't worry; you'll get used to your new surroundings soon, and the background noises will fade away.

2. Increase usage time gradually

Gradually increase the amount of time you spend with the devices per day. This gradual increase allows the brain to become reacquainted with all of the sounds without being overwhelmed.

3. Practice recognizing the sound source

It's an important tip because it makes it easier for the brain to recall all the messages that have been forgotten. Listen to the sounds of your household appliances, gadget alerts, alarm clock sounds, and your phone.

4. You should properly care for your hearing aids

Hearing aids are indispensable companions in everyday life that need regular maintenance. It's likely that a soiled device won't work properly. Furthermore, proper hearing aid cleaning significantly extends the life of your aids.

5. Home is the best place to start using your devices

External noises can sound very loud when you first start wearing hearing aids. Since this increases discomfort, it's best to start using the machine in a comfortable, relaxing environment. The best place to start is right at home. When you've adapted to your home environment, you can gradually add new places, such as going for a walk in the park or going to the store.
