THE BENEFITS OF TWO EARS AND TWO HEARING AIDS


Why do people have two ears?

People need two ears to find out where sounds are coming from, what distance, and also for balance. In reality it is not your ears doing the listening, it is your brain (in other words ears are they are the tools that provide the information for the brain to interpret. For the brain to interrupt sounds correctly the information must be accurate and as detailed as possible.

What are the benefits of wearing two Hearing Instruments?

The benefits of wearing two hearing instruments are:

SPEECH WILL SOUND CLEARER

Research shows that having two instruments makes speech and conversation significantly easier to understand that only having one. For example it is similar to wearing glasses-it makes sense to wear two lenses, therefore it makes sense to wear two hearing instruments.

BETTER UNDERSTANDING IN NOISE

It busy or loud situations like going to a restaurant you need two hearing instruments to be able to focus on the conversation, instead of the background noise.

YOUR ABILITY TO LOCATE SOUNDS WILL IMPROVE

Two hearing instruments will allow you to become more aware of your surroundings, than one instrument. For example two will allow you to locate where objects and people are, such as a ringing phone, or a friend trying to get your attention.

LISTENING WILL BE EASIER

Your ears get tired when one has to do all the work- so why not balance things out by wearing two instruments. Also you can listen with comfort because the volume will not need to be so loud to compensate.


YOU CAN RESPOND MORE NATURALLY

With natural hearing in both ears you will be able to avoid people addressing you from your “good side”, and you can also avoid situations where people interpret your reaction as impolite.

YOUR EARS WILL STAY IN SHAPE

If one ear is deprived of stimulation it could get lazy, this is condition that is known as “auditory deprivation”. The only way to avoid this is to get your ears both in shape.

YOU WILL ENJOY SOUND OF AN ENHANCED QUALITY

When listening to sound through one speaker, it sounds flat and lifeless, but with two it sounds balanced and natural-this is the same with having one hearing instrument in compared to two hearing instruments. Which option would you rather have?

YOU CAN COMMUNICATE WITH WITH MORE CONFIDENCE

Research shows that wearing two hearing instruments is associated with a higher level of satisfaction with their performance compared to people who only wear one.
