Adapting to hearing aids may involve a certain amount of adjustments. This usually happens over a couple of sessions, after you have tried the hearing aids out in different environments. We recommend keeping a diary to note down your experiences after you have had time to acclimatise.
Listen to everyday sounds in both noisy and quiet conditions. Listen to soft sounds, like leaves rustling or people talking at a distance. Listen to loud or sudden loud sounds, such as a door slamming, toilet flushing, children crying or live music. Make notes on the loudness – is it acceptable?
Changes in your sound environment
Observe typical changes in your sound environment, such as entering a shop from a noisy street or a person addressing you in a crowd. Make notes on how well your hearing aids adjust to your environment.
Listen to high-pitched sounds (e.g. violins, birdsong and children’s voices) and low pitched sounds (e.g. male voices or a bass guitar). Try to describe the quality of each sound so that adjustments can be made if necessary.
