The Hearing Test
The hearing-test is the base for a hearing-aid adaption. By the tone audiometry we detect the frequencies which are afected.
The speech test will determine your speech understanding in percentage
the consultation is always individual and is done according your needs and requirements.
Basis for that is your hearing test. By the hearing-test we´ve determind if all types of devices are suitable.
But also important are anatomic circumstances: Did you have any operations? Is the eardrum intact? Do have chronic imflamation in the ear channel?
We´ll also talk about you cosmetic desires: Should the devices be almost invisible? which form? which color?
Would you like to connect your hearing-aids with smartphones or tablet-device in order to transmit calls or music directly to both devices in the ear?
In due consideration of your budget we´ll make recommendations with which devices to start.
Hearing-aids have a wide range of settings and the programming is done by computer.
We prefer a soft adaption e.g. beginning with of soft acclimatisation – phase.
