I’ve been advised recently by a very helpful audiologist that it’s probably not a good idea to overlap trial periods of hearing aids in order to “swap” between them…
Despite having worn hearing aids all my life (40+ years), I’m just now grappling with the question: how do you really evaluate a new hearing aid when sound and hearing are so subjective? Especially when changing manufacturers?
In my mind, it ends up coming down to not which aid/manufacturer has the more positives, but which one has the fewer negatives! Somehow this doesn’t seem right – is there a better way?I
I know our brain can take days (or more?) to adjust to a new hearing aid, but is it really better to try on hearing aids one after the other over a period of weeks, or is there value in swapping from one to another in a certain environment to ttry them out?
