Can I Wear One Hearing Aid? 

Dec 14, 2023

Do you have two working ears? If the answer is yes, then you will benefit from wearing two hearing aids. It’s a fact that two ears are better than one.

  • Two ears will make speech louder.
  • Using both ears will improve the clarity of speech.
  • Two ears allow us to tell where sounds are coming from.

We hear with our brain, and two ears are needed to understand speech when you enter that noisy restaurant. Each ear transmits to the opposite side of the brain, where speech and noise are separated for optimal listening. Hearing with one ear in a noisy environment is frustrating. Ask any one eared listener.

In a quiet room, listening with one hearing aid will help you hear better, but imagine enjoying your favorite music in mono. Envision the difference when you switch to stereo. Two ears will significantly enhance your listening experience.

When was the last time you saw someone wearing a monocle? Ears and eyes perform better when you use the right and left in tandem.

If cost is an issue, consider lowering the level of technology. You will hear better using both ears.

If there is no measurable hearing or raising the volume sounds like you’re listening in between radio stations, it’s likely that a traditional hearing aid will not be the best option.

Early adoption of hearing aids has a wealth of health benefits. Hearing aids help the brain work more effectively. What are you waiting for? We’d love to meet you.
