About the Hearing Aid Self-Fitting and Adjusting [DIY] category

This forum is a place for consumers to discuss fitting and adjusting their own hearing aids.

The team at Hearing Tracker recommends that you do not attempt to fit or adjust your own hearing aids. Hearing aids are extremely powerful, and in the wrong hands may do significant and permanent damage to your hearing. The fitting and adjusting of hearing aids is best left to those with the training and experience to do so carefully and accurately. Where possible, we recommend that consumers seek a local professional who performs Real Ear Measurements (REMs), to ensure that your hearing aids are not delivering more amplification than necessary for your hearing loss. REMs also ensure maximum benefit from your hearing aids, in terms of speech understanding and auditory awareness. For a list of local providers who perform REMs, please hearing clinic directory.
