How does it feel to wear a hearing aid?

Modern aids are so light and well fitted you’ll barely notice it’s there. What you will notice is how much clearer, louder and more detailed the world around you sounds. You may notice things you haven’t heard in years such as the sound of wind blowing through the grass or birds chirping in the trees. You should also notice a marked improvement in your ability to hold conversations.

It’s quite normal to have a phase of adjustment while your brain gets used to processing this rich tapestry of sounds. But within weeks you should be thoroughly enjoying your rejuvenated sense of hearing. Many people also find their mood takes a turn for the sunnier, as they no longer have to deal with the frustration or embarrassment of hearing problems.
