Myths and Facts About Hearing Aids

17 April 2019

Myth: Hearing aids make your hearing normal again.

Fact: Hearing aids do not return your hearing to "normal." They cannot "cure" your hearing loss, but they can help you listen and talk with others. Hearing aids can make your quality of life better.

Myth: A hearing aid will damage your hearing.

Fact: A hearing aid that fits you and that you take care of will not hurt your hearing.

Myth: You do not need a hearing aid if you have a mild hearing loss.

Fact: Everyone's hearing loss and listening needs are different. Some people with a mild hearing loss do fine without aids. Others find that a hearing aid makes a big difference. An audiologist can help you figure out what you need.

Myth: You do not need to wear two hearing aids.

Fact: You normally hear with two ears. Wearing binaural, or two-ear, hearing aids helps you in many ways. It lets you figure out where sounds come from, called localization. It helps in noisy places and makes sounds more natural. Wearing two aids may make it easier to understand what others say.

Myth: The small hearing aids that you wear in your ear are the best hearing aids to buy.

Fact: There are a number of hearing aid styles. All are high quality, or "state of the art." The small hearing aids are nice because others cannot see them. However, they do not work for everyone. You need to buy a hearing aid that meets your hearing and listening needs. An audiologist can help you figure out which aid you need.
