Most myths and misconceptions about hearing aids are based on the problems associated with the older analog hearing aid models. But since most hearing aids are now digital, those problems are a thing of the past.

Quality Hearing Systems recently published an article in April 2015, titled The Top 5 Hearing Aid Myths Exposed, to dispel the common myths that prevent people with hearing loss from benefiting from the use of hearing aids.
According to Quality Hearing Systems, most myths and misconceptions about hearing aids are based on the problems associated with the older analog hearing aid models. But since most hearing aids are now digital, those problems are a thing of the past.
The first myth concerns performance, as there is a common perception that hearing aids simply don’t work. But recent research suggests the opposite: a study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association, titled “Efficacy of 3 Commonly Used Hearing Aid Circuits,” found that all three commonly used hearing aid devices “provided significant benefit in quiet and noisy listening situations.”
The question is not whether hearing aids work—the question is whether the patient has the right hearing aid for their unique hearing loss, professionally programmed according to their preferences by a qualified professional, according to Quality Hearing Systems. Bad experiences are likely the result of buying the wrong hearing aid, buying hearing aids online, consulting the wrong individual, or not having the hearing aids customized and professionally programmed.
The other myths include the belief that hearing aids are big and unsightly, too expensive, and uncomfortable and difficult to operate. Again, while this may have been true of the older analog models, the newer digital hearing aids are smaller, more attractive, and are becoming more affordable. Modern digital hearing aids are also generally easy to operate, with some models that can be controlled through the patient’s mobile phone.
