Easy To Understand And Follow

My visit to Audio Help was a surprisingly better experience than I was anticipating... and I believe that was all Jessica Woodson's doing. I was not expecting to walk out of my exam wearing hearing aids but Jessica's explanation of the benefits of trying them was too compelling to pass up.

Happy with the Service

Absolutely needed an annual checkup and appreciate Keith calling to set it up. The doctor who took care of me discovered a great deal of wax on my aids and in my ears. I am very happy with the time given to me and the service I received.

People who’ve suffered from untreated hearing loss know how frustrating understanding, communicating and interacting with others can be. More than likely, your loved ones encouraged you to get hearing aids.

They were right, of course. But while hearing aids make a world of difference and improve overall quality of life, they aren’t without glitches. One that some hearing aid wearers experience is the frustrating problem of background noise.

If your sense of hearing gets overloaded with background noise, Audio Help in Manhattan has compiled four steps you can take to lessen the impact of the pesky disturbance.

1. Wear two hearing aids
You’re better able to locate where sounds are coming from and better understand speech when you hear sound from both sides instead of one.

How do we acquire hearing loss?

  • Hearing Aid Lifestyle GuideRepeated exposure to loud noises
  • Ear infection
  • Viral infection
  • Head injury

1.) Seek help for your hearing loss: Hearing is linked to cognitive & cardiovascular health. Don't delay treatment. Hearing is part of your HEALTH. Visit Audio Help for a baseline hearing evaluation. Call to make an appointment today: (866) 530-7500

2.) Treat your hearing loss: There is no medical treatment for hearing loss. The only way to treat diagnosed hearing loss is through the use of amplification, such as hearing aids. Individuals who do not stimulate their impaired auditory system with sound, by the use of hearing aids for example, may experience a decrease in speech clarity overtime, otherwise known as auditory deprivation.

3.) Determine the level of technology that best suits your communication lifestyle: Hearing aids aren't one-size fits all. We customize the amount of power for each hearing aid to fit your lifestyle. Do you live an active, social life or are you more of a homebody? There is no right or wrong answer! Different levels of hearing technology are available based on your communication lifestyle.
