Hearing aids offer patients the ability to engage in life in a more meaningful way, but sometimes they aren’t enough. Many types of hearing loss can be assisted with the use of assistive listening devices (ALDs), which are a helpful complement to hearing aids.
While a hearing aid makes specific noises louder, an assistive listening device can help reduce other distracting environmental noises. Used in conjunction with your radio, television, or even alarm clock, they can help to improve your quality of hearing when coupled with a hearing aid. Assistive listening devices may enable you to clear additional hurdles you encounter daily and add to the benefit your hearing aids can provide.
Along with hearing aid accessories, your ability to engage in the activities you love can be restored. Many patients find they utilize devices and accessories including:
- Telephone amplifying devices
- TV listening systems
- Swim molds
- Musician’s monitors
- Alarm clocks
- Bluetooth connectivity
