FAQs

Pure tone testing is the most common type of hearing test. This is when tones of various pitches and volume are played into your ears (using headphones or earbuds). The results are displayed on a graph (Called an audiogram). This data is used by Audiologists to 1) Determine the degree of your hearing loss and, if you decide to purchase hearing aids 2) Used by the Audiologist to program your hearing aids.

Tinnitus is a hissing, buzzing, whistling or ringing in the ears that only you can hear. For some people, tinnitus impacts daily life with increased anxiety, anger and disturbed sleep. Tinnitus is not a disease but rather a symptom caused by an underlying condition, such as hearing loss, an ear injury or even some medications. About 80% of people with tinnitus have some degree of hearing loss without being aware of it, and this is why hearing aids can help.

Yes. The way hearing aids help in restaurants is first, by amplifying the voices of the people at your table so you can hear them more clearly and second, by not amplifying the background noise around you. On high end hearing aids (Like our X-950) a recent clinical study demonstrates even better performance.

Bluetooth allows you to send the sound from one device (eg. Your phone) to a remote speaker, wirelessly. When you connect your phone to your car, this is done by bluetooth. In recent years, most premium Behind-The-Ear hearing aids have come with some level of bluetooth. This can allow your phone calls to be streamed directly into you hearing aids. Less advanced hearing aids have “1-Way” bluetooth, the sound comes into your aids but you still need to hold your phone up to you hear (or use a small remote microphone) to speak into it. On the best hearing aids today, your voice is transferred back to the phone through the hearing aids. So your phone can be in your pocket or the seat of the car beside you while you are speaking completely hands free.
