After completing a lot of research on hearing aids for a class I am currently taking I started to wonder how well at best hearing aids do in helping users overcome hearing loss.
As part of a current assignment I am required to interview 3 hearing aid users on their hearing loss and hearing aid satisfaction/performance. I thought it would be interesting to compare more than just 3 responses so I created a profile on Hearingaidforums.com
If you would like to share your story I would greatly appreciate it!
The interview questions are here below (feel free to post your responses on this thread or please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer not to publish your answers)
How long have you worn your hearing aids?
How long before getting hearing aids did you suspect hearing loss?
Daily on average how long do you wear your hearing aids?
Do you feel that you benefit from your hearing aids?
What complaints do you have about your hearing aids?
Do you feel that your hearing aids live up to what your audiologist or hearing aid dealer told you they would do?
Did you get your hearing aids from an audiologist, a hearing aid dealer, an online hearing aid dealer or another source?
optional additional questions
Hearing aid that you currently use:
If money wasn’t an issue what hearing aid device would you wear? (if your answer is other that what you currently use)
I am merely a college student. I do not work for the hearing aid companies nor am I special enough to be publishing any studies or statistics (plus my math skills stink . I’m just a modest student looking to better understand the field of audiology and to absorb what you think of/about your experiences with audiologists.
Thank you for taking the time to help me suceed in my Aural Rehabilitation course!
