(Using hearing aids in both ears)


Natural Hearing with both ears.

  Better sound quality

As we hear from both the ears it helps us hear clear and from all the directions hence the quality is better with both the ears

  Better speech understanding even in Noisy situation.

Since we are hearing from both the side our brain tends to localise the sound from both the ears and in agiven noisy situation our brain can focus on more clearer signal from the either ear hence we can hear better in noisy situations also with using hearing aids in both the ears

Better speech understanding from distance.

using hearing aids in both the ears also helps us in having a improved speech discrimination from distance sounds and speech signal too

  Less listening effort and anxiety.

Amplification in both ears compensates for the deficit of hearing and therefore it reduces the effort put on by the brain to interpret the signal and speech cues hence reduces the Listening effort.

Better sound source localization.

Hearing from both sides make easier for the brain to Localize the sound and concentrate during a conversation, Using amplification in both the ears helps to pin point the sounds or words  and phrases more accurately during a active conversation.
