The importance of hearing aid fitting


Hearing aid fitting appointment

Once your audiologist has advised the right digital hearing aids for you, your lifestyle, your hearing loss and the technology and connectivity you require - you will be fitted with your new hearing aids.  For hearing aid fittings to be successful, it is important that your hearing aids are fitted properly, as this ensures you are provided with the right amount of amplification - which will enhance and maximise your hearing experience. 

Take this time to get to know your hearing aids, how they work and what they are capable of.

The advantages of a hearing aid fitting


Hearing aid fitting procedure

Using your hearing test results, your audiologist will know exactly how much gain your hearing aids need to give you that right amplification.  For instance, amplifying soft sounds to make them audible and compressing loud sounds so they are more comfortable.

Your audiologist will also discuss your common listening environments, what you should expect from your hearing aids and you will go through what features your new devices have.  Here is when your audiologist will make suggestions according to your audiogram and communication needs.  

If earmoulds are needed, your audiologist will take impressions of your ears and you will be contacted when your custom-made hearing aids are ready.  But if not, you can have your hearing aids fitted there and then, in most cases.


Why is it important that hearing aids are programmed correctly?

Hearing aids that are fitted correctly are vital for a successful hearing experience and for you to get the best out of your new devices.  That is why most of our patients prefer a hearing aid fitting at home - the programming is the most realistic, as you are in the environment you spend most of your time in.

Your hearing loss will be reviewed in a follow-up appointment, as well as any maintenance needed in the future.  It is also important to remember that it takes time to adjust to your hearing aids and to contact your audiologist if you think they need adjusting in any way.
