Following an increase in enquiries, Hidden Hearing has released details of binaural hearing and its advantages.
While many people may already wear one hearing aid, for those with hearing loss in both ears – a binaural amplification could provide the most benefit.
Hidden Hearing explains the benefits of binaural hearing:
1. Better understanding of speech
Research has shown that when using just one hearing device, some noises and speech can sound alike and create confusion. With two devices, many clients report that the clarity of their hearing when listening to speech is far better than with just one.
2. Directional ability
With two devices, customers often find that they are able to more accurately tell which direction sounds are coming from, and even how far away they might be. An important safety aspect, this is a great advantage to users who are routinely in environments with lots of traffic, for instance, or where several people are talking at once.
3. Greater listening comfort
With two hearing devices working in unison, clients are able to use a lower volume setting on their hearing aids, leading to better comfort levels and reducing the chances of feedback.
