Hearing

by in Spencer

Click to enlargeI’ve upgraded my hearing aids after five years. I now am wearing Inteo aids from Widex. They do a better job of amplifying than my old Resound aids. Of course the technology has improved dramatically since I got my first set of aids. These allow me to hear much better in the classroom. I’m curious to see how they will do when I move into the gym.

My ears have been going downhill for years. I got that first pair in 2001. They were “Canta” by Resound. There were four programmable channels on that first pair, but I only used two of them, one for noisy environments and one for general use. One of the big differences between my new ones and my old ones is the way the new ones automatically adjust for the levels of sound in the environment. They automatically tune down extra sounds. It almost eliminates the need for multiple channels.

If you are trying to decide if you need or want aids, I’d be glad to talk to you about the process I went through and why I ended up with what I ended up with. Just email me.
