Hearing Aid Measurements in Orlando Explained by Our Hearing Aid Specialists

According to our 5-star-rated Hearing Aid Specialists, recent studies on hearing aid use have made an astounding discovery. Although hearing aid technology has improved significantly in the last decade, hearing instrument user satisfaction has not increased at the same rate! If you wear hearing aids or are thinking of pursuing hearing loss rehabilitation, this may be the most important article you read all year! Keep reading to learn how to ensure an exceptional hearing aid experience for yourself with our hearing aid measurements in Orlando.

What Is Wrong with Today’s Hearing Aids?

Reports published by Hearing Review and the Hearing Journal indicate that 48 million people in the United States suffer from some type of hearing loss. Of those people with significant hearing loss, 25% already own hearing instruments, and the majority of these owners experience moderate-to-severe hearing loss.

More than one million of these patients are not satisfied with their hearing instruments and confess to leaving them “in the drawer.” If hearing instrument technology and design have improved, why are people not having an improved experience?

Key factors expressed for user dissatisfaction include:

  • Not enough benefit
  • Poor fit
  • Unacceptable discomfort
  • Unsatisfactory performance with background noise

How to Improve Your Hearing Aid Experience

Our goal at Preferred Hearing Centers is to help our patients achieve the most benefit possible from their hearing instruments. Studies have shown that if a specialist adjusts your hearing aid solely based upon the manufacturer’s fitting algorithm, without proper testing, it may result in an inaccurate hearing prescription. Studies found that these initial-fit algorithms are often an inadequate amplification prescription, and research in England showed improvement in patient satisfaction when patients were fit with their correct measurement.

The only way to truly account for individual ear differences is for our Hearing Aid Specialists to take an exact measurement of how your hearing aid is amplifying sound in the specific ear canal. This is the go-to method for achieving a proper hearing aid fit.

I cannot say enough excellent things about Jaycee and Barbara at Preferred Hearing. The staff is so kind and Jaycee took a lot of time with me to be sure I understood every test and reviewing all my options for hearing devices. I’ve only had my hearing aids one week, but it’s been a life changing week! Best decision I ever made coming to Preferred Hearing. (I am 80 years young again) - Mary Ann A. mary ann a review

Great team at the Winter Springs office. Knowledgeable, professional, friendly, outgoing and that's just the beginning. Barbara at the front desk is a sweetheart. Jaysee is THE professional you want to adjust your hearing aids. He can translate your hearing issues into adjustments that work. Highly recommend this group Hearing Professionals.

I was impressed with the great detail of the hearing examination. I was a little skeptical about hearing aids but the staff is very professional and very experienced. I purchased a great set of hearing aids that have changed my life so I can hear so much better! They did not try to upsell me or sell me a pair that was extra expensive. They only showed me what I needed for my hearing aids. I highly recommend Preferred Hearing Centers!

I had been with another hearing center and was not getting help with my profound hearing loss. In a last try I went to Preferred Hearing. The hearing testtng was more extensive than Florida Hospital audiologist! My problem was documented and corrected with streaming bluetooth hearing aids. It has made my life so much more fun again. I can watch TV with other humans without the volume blowing them out of the room. I can go to dinner with friends and hear them talking. Highly recommend to anyone with hearing loss!
