Loss of Hearing and speech deprives a person of ability to lead a normal life. No matter how things are changed accordingly or people around them go adaptive, but the bitter fact is that they suffer, both psychologically and socially. At Decibel Clinic, our audiologists and hearing consultants, with their years of experience are able to carry out proper diagnosis and treat them out of hearing loss and speech problems.
In most of the cases of hearing loss, a perfectly suited hearing aid is prescribed by the specialists.

Now, selection of a particular type of aid depends on your lifestyle and degree of hearing loss.
Tinnitus is an abnormal perception of a sound reported by a patient but is unrelated to an external source of stimulation. It may be intermittent, constant or fluctuant, mild or severe, and may vary from a low roaring sensation to a high pitched type of sound. It may or may not be associated with a hearing loss. It is also classified further into subjective tinnitus (a noise perceived by the patient alone) or objective (a noise perceived by the patient as well as by another listener). Subjective tinnitus is common; however, objective tinnitus is relatively uncommon. The location of tinnitus may be in the ear(s) and/or in the head.
If you have hearing loss in both ears (bilateral hearing loss), then you are most likely a candidate for two hearing aids. Let us see why two hearing aids are better than one.
Better understanding of speech. By wearing two hearing aids rather than one, selective listening is more easily achieved. This means your brain can focus on the conversation you want to hear. Research shows that people wearing two hearing aids routinely understand speech and conversation significantly better than people wearing one hearing aid.
Better understanding in group and noisy situations. Speech intelligibility is improved in difficult listening situations when wearing two hearing aids.
Better ability to tell the direction of sound. This is called localization. In a social gathering, for example, localization allows you to hear from which direction someone is speaking to you. Also, localization helps you determine from which direction traffic is coming or where your children or grandchildren are playing. Simply put, with binaural hearing, you will better detect where sounds are coming from in every situation.
You can expect that after you have adapted and learned to use them properly (usually 4 to 8 weeks), many "speech sound" benefits from hearing instruments will become available to you. You can expect your ability to perceive speech correctly will be enhanced. You can expect most conversations will be much easier with the hearing aids. You can expect more relaxed hearing, more confidence and more satisfaction from your conversations. Additionally, you can expect to hear warning sounds more readily with the hearing aids, than without.
