The basics of hearing aids

Buying hearing aids for the first time can feel like a big step. Explore what you need to know to find the best hearing aids for you. 

What are hearing aids?

A digital hearing aid is a small device that you wear in or behind your ear. Made with state-of-the-art design and technology, ReSound hearing aids are more than just a sound amplifier. They are programmed to suit your level of hearing loss to allow you to live life to the fullest. 

Hearing aid technology has come a long way from the big, bulky hearing devices of the past that often had cords hanging from them. Today, they are discreet, comfortable and offer a variety of features, allowing you to adjust your hearing devices for different environments, like a dinner party, a movie theatre or a playground.

ReSound hearing aids will be there with you, helping you hear more, do more and be more than you ever thought possible.

How hearing aids work

Hearing aids consist of four components: a microphone that picks up sound, an amplifier that makes the sound louder, a receiver that sends the amplified sound into the ear, and a battery for power. Designed to amplify selectively, hearing aids cut down on the background noise and amplify the sounds you want to hear. 

Although all hearing aid devices are constructed with these four components, you will find variation in the sound quality, depending on the hearing aid model and quality. No matter which hearing device you choose, it should be programmed by a hearing care professional to meet your unique needs. 

Your lifestyle and the listening environments you regularly frequent will determine the best hearing aids for you. With our portfolio of ReSound hearing devices, wireless accessories and apps, we have a solution for everyone and with ReSound you can rely on getting the best.

How hearing aids help

The world is full of sounds we don’t want to miss: voices, music, the bouncing of a basketball, even a beeping crosswalk. When you have trouble hearing what’s being said around you, it can feel very isolating. Cut off from a conversation, unable to keep up with a discussion or laugh along with a joke, it’s easy to feel left out and alone. Hearing connects us, and life is so much more enjoyable when you can hear what’s going on around you.

The sooner you take action on your hearing loss, the sooner you can get back the life that you remember. Although hearing aids won't restore your natural hearing, they will make sounds fuller clearer and richer, reducing the impact hearing loss has on your life and emotional well-being. 

Your brain is equipped with an amazing ability to make sense of sound, and uses different tactics depending on noise levels. Our advanced technologies take full advantage of this to help you hear and focus on what you want to hear. That might mean understanding a conversation in a noisy restaurant, being able to focus on the speaker in a large meeting room, or hear your grandchildren call your name.

Caring for your digital hearing aids

Hearing aid maintenance is important for long-lasting hearing aids. Even though hearing devices are very durable and can withstand the stresses of daily use, hearing aid maintenance is necessary to make sure you’re getting the best sound quality and longevity out of your device. With a few tips, you can make sure that your hearing aids work their best for many years to come. 

Daily care

  • Remove your hearing aids when applying makeup, perfume, aftershave, hair spray and sunscreen, as they may get into the hearing aid and cause damage.
  • Clean your hearing devices using a soft cloth, tissue or proper cleaning tools to remove earwax, grease or moisture that can block incoming sounds or damage the components of your new hearing aids. Do not use water or solvents, as these can damage hearing aids.
  • Store your hearing aids in a cool, dry place when not in use. For those aids with a battery pack, leave the door open to preserve battery power.

Regular maintenance

  • Use a damp cloth to clean the receiver tube and receiver dome.
  • Do not use a direct source of water when cleaning the receiver tubes or the receiver domes.
  • Contact your hearing care professional for replacement components when they become stiff, brittle or discoloured.

Other tips

  • Never immerse hearing aids in water or other liquids, or wear while showering, swimming, in heavy rain or in a moist environment like a steam bath or sauna.
  •  Leave wet hearing devices to dry with the battery out and the battery door open.
  • Put the hearing aid and battery in a sealed container together with a drying agent (desiccator) overnight. Don’t use the hearing aid until completely dry.
  • Don’t leave your hearing devices in or near direct heat or sunlight.
  • Avoid rough handling of hearing aids or dropping them on hard surfaces or floors.
  • Allow your hearing care professional to check your hearing aid device from time to time.

How to get hearing aids

If you have trouble hearing, the first step is to consult with a hearing care professional who can evaluate your hearing. Hearing care professionals are uniquely trained in the treatment of hearing loss and imbalance. Regardless of which type of hearing care professional you see, he or she can match you with the hearing aid devices that are appropriate for your hearing loss and provide support to help you get the most from them.
 
Finding the help and support of the right hearing care professional can make a profound difference in your hearing experience.
 
Audiologist
These professionals have a master’s degree or doctorate degree in audiology. Audiologists identify, assess and treat disorders of the hearing and balance systems. They can select, fit and dispense hearing aids and other related devices. They can also program cochlear implants, provide instruction, rehabilitation and counselling services to help communication.
 
Hearing aid specialist
This is an individual who is certified by the National Board of Certification in Hearing Aid Sciences to test for hearing loss, fit hearing aids and provide care and counselling to people with hearing loss.
 
Ear-Nose-Throat doctor (ENT)
These medical doctors are board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology. They specialize in diseases of the ear, nose and throat. An ENT can perform and supervise hearing and balance testing, as well as prescribe medications, perform surgery and select, fit and dispense hearing aids and other hearing devices.
 
The best hearing aids will differ in suitability, depending on the person. Your hearing care professional will work with you to find the style that best fits your lifestyle, budget and degree of hearing loss.

Getting used to wearing hearing aids

When you first get your hearing aid devices, they can make a world of difference, but changes don’t happen overnight. It can take up to six months to get used to newly regained sounds. These tips can help you adjust when you’re new to hearing aids.
 
Have realistic expectations
Hearing aids will help you hear better, but they won’t give you perfect hearing or restore the hearing you once had. 
 
Practice sounds
Sounds may seem too loud or overwhelming at first, but with practice you’ll learn to focus on the sounds you want to hear. Wear your new hearing devices as much as possible, especially in new listening environments, to better recognize sounds and learn which hearing aid settings work best for you in different situations.
 
Be patient
Your brain needs time to become familiar with the speech and environmental sounds it couldn’t hear before. It’s a process that takes consistency and commitment, but the payoff of better hearing is worth it.
 
Rest
You should gradually increase the amount of time you wear your hearing aids, so that you’ll eventually be able to wear them all day. The adjustment period can be tiring, so make sure you rest as well.
 
Check in
Let your hearing care professional know if you have issues hearing, or if you feel any pain or discomfort, so that your hearing devices can be fine-tuned for a more comfortable fit.

Buying hearing aids online

Buying hearings aids online may seem like an easy way to save time and money. However, hearing aids for sale online may not meet your unique needs, and many devices simply make sounds louder, including background noise. A hearing aid is a complex, technical device that should be carefully fitted to your degree of hearing loss and lifestyle.  

Finding a good hearing care professional is an important first step in managing hearing loss. There's no reason to wait. A hearing test is quick, simple and completely painless, and it will give you a clear idea of whether you have hearing loss. 

If you do have hearing loss, your hearing care professional will be able to tell you if it can be treated with a hearing aid, and if so, which type of hearing aid will suit you best. In most cases, your hearing care professional can give you the results immediately after the test and advise you on how to rediscover your hearing.

Once you’ve selected a hearing aid device, your hearing care professional will program and fine-tune your hearing aids to your unique requirements and sound preferences. You’ll also learn how to use and care for your hearing devices, so you can get the most out of your hearing aids for many years to come. 

Think you may have hearing loss?

We recommend that you turn to a qualified hearing care professional, rather than find hearing aids for sale online. A hearing care professional will help identify if there is hearing loss and the type you may be facing. Find one near you today, and have your hearing tested.
