Most hearing aids are able to be programmed or reprogrammed with new settings, so long as they are not locked by the business who you purchased them from.

The Hearing Aid Problem

Finding the appropriate hearing aid can be a daunting process. An appropriately selected hearing aid is critical for an individual with hearing loss. Recent studies have shown that approximately 60% of individuals who purchase hearing aids are not fit appropriately. This means that in many situations, the hearing device sold to the individual is not even loud enough to amplify sound at particular frequencies, so that person can perceive speech more clearly; or the device is not programmed properly for that person’s hearing loss. The end result is not a good one. Usually, it ends new hearing devices and no perceived benefit. Most people in this situation end up very frustrated and give up on using hearing aids.

What is an Audiologist

There are many hearing aid stores in the area, but not all professionals fitting hearing aids have education in hearing loss. Although both can fit hearing devices, it is important to understand the difference when it comes to treating your hearing loss.

An Audiologist is a degreed professional who is extensively trained at the doctorate level (8 years of education) in the science of hearing, anatomy, and physiology of the human auditory system, hearing aid amplification, technology, and programming. Hearing Instrument Specialists can apply for a license after meeting basic requirements. In Arizona, a Hearing Instrument Specialists is not required to have any formal schooling or medical training in hearing healthcare. Hearing Instrument Specialists can be trained clinically by an Audiologist and can work together with Audiologists to help provide great patient care.
