No two cases of hearing loss are exactly the same. Most people with a hearing impairment experience difficulties hearing soft tones and high-pitched sounds such as whispers, children’s voices or birdsong. The loss of these pleasures usually occurs gradually over many years, making it difficult for those affected to recognise that they are hearing impaired. Relatives, friends or colleagues are often the first to notice that something is wrong.
Many people find it hard to come to terms with the idea of wearing hearing aids. They put off the decision and only do something about it when the problems associated with poor hearing simply become too much for them. These problems can include decreased attention, difficulty communicating with others, diminished memory, declining job performance, irritability, stress or depression.
The earlier you do something about hearing loss, the better. Even when hearing is just starting to deteriorate, Signia hearing aids help to maintain neural pathways in your brain responsible for hearing all the sounds around you. The longer you put off wearing one of our wide range of hearing aids to suit all tastes and lifestyles, the harder it will be for you to get used to them when you do finally wear them, and more importantly, the more you’ll miss out on life’s brilliant sounds.
