People with hearing loss often have trouble hearing and using their hearing aids.
But with a few simple steps, you can make them a lot more usable.1.
Use the right earpiece.
If you have a hearing loss, you probably have to buy hearing aids with your earpieces on.
This is true for everyone.
But if you can’t, you might want to use your hearing aids on your own.
Use a hearing device.
If the earpiece you’re using isn’t the right one for you, try a new one.
That way, the device won’t interfere with your hearing.
If it does, you’ll know you made a mistake and get your hearing aid replaced.3.
Use different hearing aids in different environments.
You can try hearing aids that work well for people who have a narrow range of hearing, or those that work better for people with deep-tongued hearing.
(For example, hearing aids like hearing aids for the deaf can be good for people whose hearing is limited to just a few inches.)4.
Try a different hearing aid every time.
The hearing aids you buy are likely the best you can get, so try them again and again.
If they don’t work, you should start using another one.
And if they don.
Then you can try a different one.
