About Hearing and Hearing Loss
Our goal is to provide you with the best hearing technology available so that you can recover your hearing and reconnect with what’s important to you. Quality hearing care begins with a thorough hearing evaluation.
Do I Really Have a Hearing Problem?
Hearing loss can affect a certain range of pitches, making it hard for many people with hearing loss to hear specific sounds. Typically softer, higher pitch sounds become harder to hear, especially at a distance.
Speech requires many quiet, rapidly changing high pitched sounds, so hearing loss can make understanding the flow of conversation harder by having to guess what words are being used. An example is the word “fit” which can easily be confused with “sit”, “tick” or “sick”. Conversations become more challenging when someone is speaking indirectly, or when there is background noise, like music or a television show.
