If you have a hearing loss in both ears it is very important to wear 2 hearing aids.
A few reasons why:
1) Better understanding of speech, especially in noise:
Research shows that people who wear two hearing aids understand conversations and speech significantly better than those who wear only one.
2) Better ability to tell where sound is coming from:
This is called localization, and it helps you determine where traffic is coming from or which person is speaking in a group.
3) Better sound quality:
When you listen to a stereo system you get great sound. Wearing two hearing aids gives you similar results and increases your hearing range from 180 degrees to a full 360 degrees.
4) Makes hearing less tiring and listening more pleasant:
You won’t have to strain to hear with your ‘good’ ear, making life much more relaxing.
5) Keeps both ears (full brain) active which can help reduce further hearing loss:
Research Studies show that if you don’t use your hearing, you can lose it. By only wearing one hearing aid, you can cause further damage to the other ear (brain area). The use of two hearing aids helps eliminate this problem.
If you have hearing loss in both ears, but you’re trying to get by with just one hearing aid (or, none at all), you’re doing yourself a great disservice.
