What should users of new

hearing aids realistically expect?

When wearing hearing aids it is important to be realistic and patient. Hearing aids do not claim to restore your hearing to "normal" and may not allow you to hear perfectly in every listening situation. Familiar sounds such as birds, turning the pages of your newspaper, or even your own voice or footsteps may be strange to you initially because you are not accustomed to hearing these things. It may take a while to adjust to your new hearing aids and realize your full potential. Generally, it will take at least four (4) to six (6) weeks of daily instrument use for your brain to habituate or get used to hearing the sounds of life again. Be patient and work closely with your hearing professional during the first six (6) weeks after fitting.
