Autumn isn't just a pretty sight for the eyes - it brings spectacular sounds with it too. Here we focus on the four sounds of Autumn.
At Hearing Aid UK, autumn is one of our favourite seasons for sound, and with the new innovative hearing aid technology of today - every sound just seems more amplified, more comfortable and more realistic. A perfect example of this has got to be Signia's latest launch - the Xperience. With its 3D acoustic motion sensors, you can now hear your whole soundscape the way nature intended, while on the go.
Xperience supports your hearing, so you can take in every bit of detail on autumnal walks - because who doesn't like the sound of fallen crispy leaves crunching underfoot? Perhaps, you've just got your new hearing aids and are exploring old sounds anew - grab your wellies, wrap up and head out on an autumnal adventure!
The sound of rain shows up in all seasons, here in the UK - but a sound we would miss if our hearing loss restricted us. The pitta patta in puddles, leaves, trees and on rooftops are quite the mindful and calming listening experiences, that sometimes we take for granted.
That being said, it is important to remember that when you are wearing hearing aids, in wet weather conditions, there is more risk of getting moisture into them. Moisture can be detrimental to hearing aids! When the grey clouds come - put on a hat or use an umbrella to protect them.
Autumnal winds can be quite a peaceful sound, but sometimes a strong and relentless one for the ears. Most modern hearing aids are equipped for such environments, with 'WindNoise Management' and 'SmartWind Manager' - like the Widex Evoke 440, they adapt accordingly.
Such technology means that your hearing remains clear and comfortable, even in challenging situations. Therefore, you never miss the sounds of autumn or conversations, while you stroll.
Nostalgic sounds such as a crackling bonfire and spectacular firework displays are all wonderful snippets of life and sound to experience. It is important to adjust your hearing aid settings, so you can manage the changes in the sound atmosphere.
A great example of practical adjustable technology, built with easy alterations in mind, is the Starkey Livio 2400. Using the 'Thrive' App you can easily and discreetly make any changes to your hearing aids with your smartphone, wherever you are.
Although it is always nice to clear your garden of leaves, this time of year, doing so requires using gardening machinery. Remember to always wear ear protection, while you are using any leaf blowers or other noisy DIY tools.
If you feel like you are missing out on all the sounds of this season - it is always important to get your hearing checked. Call to book an appointment with one of our independent audiologists today.
