Hearing Aids Summerville
Your guide to getting the right device for your life
You know you need to do something about your hearing loss. But there are so many devices, so many features and options, that you're not quite sure exactly what you need. Because we want you to find the listening product that supports your lifestyle, we've created this brief guide to help you find your way. By the time you're done reading, you'll know exactly how to find the assistive device that works best for you.
The truth of the matter is that finding the right hearing aid is an intensively personal process. There's no single solution that's right for everyone.
However, you only need to take two steps to find the best hearing aids Summerville offers: Asking the right questions and making the right adjustments to the device you've selected.
Step One: Asking the right questions
At Optimal Hearing, we pride ourselves on providing our patients and customers with the information they need to get select the right hearing device from the huge number of hearing aids Summerville has to offer. Whether you work with our team of hearing experts and consultants, or you work with any of the other retailers in the area, you should never, ever be afraid to ask questions.
Buying a hearing aid is an intensely personal experience. You're buying a device that will literally change your life. You need to make sure it changes it in the right way.
So what sorts of questions should you be asking? Try these:
What features would be most useful to me?
Sales people may try to impress you with features and options that seem nice, but don't help you hear any better. Make sure you get the features you need and want by asking about the features that are most useful for you and your lifestyle. If you're unsure or intimidated by sales people, simply ask your audiologist, hearing consultant, or other hearing professional before you get on the sales floor.
Be sure to ask things like:
- What fit is best for me?
- Do I need a remote control?
- Do I need wireless connectivity?
How difficult will it be to make adjustments and provide servicing and minor repairs?
Can you make adjustments on your own, or do they need to be made by a certified technician? Can you take the hearing aid anywhere, or do you have to take it back to the original shop?
Can I try them before I buy them?
Because comfort and feel are such an integral part of this process, is there a trial period to test the hearing aids? Are there any nonrefundable fees if I don'twant the hearing aids?
How long is the warranty?
Can it be extended to cover future maintenance and repairs?
Step Two: Making a smooth adjustment
It takes time to adjust to wearing a new hearing aid. On the other hand, you don't have to put up with an uncomfortable device!
It's vital to take time and patience to adjust the product to meet your daily needs. This means wearing them regularly, and trying out all of the features as well.
When you get your hearing aids, ask the sales person, audiologist, or other team member to go through the important steps of daily care and use, such as:
- Inserting them correctly
- Removing them correctly
- Cleaning them properly
- Identifying left and right aids
- Replacing the batteries
- Volume adjustment
- Wireless or wired connectivity
- Using the remote control
- Testing the device it in different listening environments
