Once your hearing aid fits comfortably in your ear, it is time to program it to create the perfect sound environment
. To do so, the hearing professional will typically follow these steps:
- Program your hearing aid – Your hearing professional will use special fitting software to see how your hearing aids work with your type of hearing loss. This software will also measure the acoustics of your ear and how hearing aids react to that. This makes for a more precise fit.
- The hearing test – You will then get another hearing test – this time with your hearing aids on. This will help to measure the differences in how you can hear with hearing aids vs. without them.
- The final touches – After you and your hearing professional have determined the best fit and sound, you will be able to make smaller adjustments based on real-life listening situations. You can return to your hearing professional if you feel that your hearing aids need adjustments after a few days of use.
The perfect fit with WIDEX EASYWEAR
First-time hearing aid users may find that their voice sounds strange when they first put their hearing aids on. Getting used to hearing aids does take some time.
There are two other issues that Widex has been working to fix when it comes to how hearing aids fit in the user’s ear. We recently found a solution to these with WIDEX EASYWEAR:Lateral migration
– Older hearing aid models may feel like they are going to fall out of your ears when you move around a lot – a problem that is technically called “lateral migration”. We have worked to fix this problem with EASYWEAR, a feature of Widex hearing aids that helps your hearing aids to better stay in your ears
– Lateral migration can also cause a feeling of itching in your ears due to the friction caused by moving ear molds. EASYWEAR can also help this by minimizing friction and keeping hearing aids firmly in place.
The patent-pending design of WIDEX EASYWEAR allows for a better physical fit
, more stability in the ear canal, and a more discreet look.
