What can I expect when using hearing aids for the first time?
When you start wearing hearing aid for the first time , you’ll be hearing a lot of sounds you may not have heard in a long time. Music may sound fuller and richer, voices may become more distinct, and movies and television may suddenly become clearer.
But with all the good sounds you’ll be hearing a new one too. There may be one or two that you might have happily forgotten about. Some customers complain that air conditioners suddenly sound too loud or that they find vacuuming tiresome. Brains do adapt quite well, and most people do get used to these types of ambient noise with time.
Family members of people with hearing impairments often get accustomed to speaking loudly to make sure they are heard, so it may take a while for that habit to change.
