Our online hearing assessment.

Is a hearing device for me?

If you’re not sure whether a hearing device is the right option for you, consider a few questions:

  • Do you often think people are mumbling?
  • Are you nodding along during conversations even when you haven’t heard clearly?
  • Do you have trouble hearing in crowded spaces?
  • Have you frequently been exposed to loud environments (concerts, sports venues, etc.)?

Learn about your assessment results.

No
hearing loss.

If your assessment indicates no measurable hearing loss you should have no trouble hearing in any environment, including those with background noise.

Mild
hearing loss.

An assessment measuring mild hearing loss might indicate trouble hearing certain frequencies in environments with background noise or when the volume is low.

Moderate
hearing loss.

Moderate hearing loss can mean you have increased difficulty hearing certain frequencies and in environments with background noise, such as restaurants.

Severe
hearing loss.

An assessment that indicates severe hearing loss can mean you’re having trouble hearing people speak, even in quieter environments.

If you’re currently experiencing no hearing loss now is the time to protect your hearing health with the right protection.

Those with mild hearing loss can often benefit from a PSAP, and even those with no measurable hearing loss can enjoy the noise-cancelling benefits.

If your hearing assessment indicated moderate hearing loss, our assortment of hearing aids can help you rejoin the conversations going on around you.

For those whose hearing assessment indicates more severe hearing loss, we recommend seeing an audiologist to find the best solution for you.

Understanding hearing loss.

For most people, hearing loss is a gradual, age-related process.
But regardless of your age, as hearing loss progresses it can
affect us in a number of ways. Our communication might become
impaired, we can withdraw socially, and we can even miss out on
educational or job opportunities.

Fortunately, impaired hearing can often be improved with the use
of a hearing aid or PSAP (personal sound amplification product).

Hearing aid or personal sound amplifier?

The differences and how to decide.

If you have a specific type of hearing loss, or you have trouble hearing certain frequencies, a hearing aid might be right for you. Here are just a few of the features a hearing aid can offer:

  • Often tailored to the frequencies associated with specific hearing loss
  • Typically allow for more advanced control based on environmental noise
  • Personalized settings allow you to find the perfect solution
  • More products offer direct audio connectivity for music and phone calls

While PSAPs will usually not be tailored to your personal hearing needs, or fitted to your ear, there are benefits to consider, such as:

  • Many models feature noise-cancelling technology
  • Some products let you personalize TV volume levels
  • PSAPs can be a cost-effective choice

Hearing device technology.

Some features to consider.

Wireless connectivity.

More and more devices these days feature smart technology that allows them to be controlled via an app on your smartphone. This makes it easy to adjust settings like noise cancellation or volume.

Background noise cancellation.

One of the biggest obstacles with hearing loss is background noise. Devices with noise-cancelling technology can detect and reduce this noise to help improve your experience.

 

Moisture protection.

Any device that’s worn on or near your body during everyday use can be susceptible to moisture intrusion. Look for designs featuring moisture protection to help protect your product.

Battery life and technology.

Before you purchase, decide whether you’d like a product that you can recharge at night, or one with batteries you’ll need to replace from time to time.

Direct audio connection.

This feature connects your hearing aid or amplifier directly to your compatible smartphone or speakers, so you can listen to music directly through your hearing device.

Fit types: Behind-the-ear or in-the-ear?

Find out which fit is right for you.

Behind-the-ear hearing devices.

Behind-the-ear hearing devices are the most common fit design.
They’re easy to use and care for and can help in many everyday
situations. You’ll find models that feature:

  • Speakers that rest in the ear while the receiver fits behind
  • Longer battery life than some in-ear models
  • Easy handling due to their larger size

In-ear hearing devices.

Advances in the technology built into these types of hearing
devices — as well as their improved look — have led to growing
popularity of in-ear models. Here are some of the features you can find:

  • Discreet (almost invisible) designs
  • Personalized frequency and volume settings
  • Open fit designs that allow for natural sound
  • Incredible audio fidelity
