Hearing Aid Fitting System

Hearing MissionFor superior performance, get the best in hearing aid fitting. But beware: most hearing aid dispensers use only manufacturers’ fitting tools to match instruments to prescriptions. Investigations over decades indicates that manufacturer fitting tools are not always accurate.

Speech Map Technology

That’s why we use the Hearing Aid Fitting System, an independent speech mapping software. It’s useful to both fit hearing aids and dial in performance through the break in period and beyond to confirm that ever set is performing at optimal level. It is a state-of-the-art hearing aid measurement system that’s designed to provide better hearing results through advanced speech mapping technology. Speech map technology is able to measure actual performance inside your ear, while you’re wearing your hearing aids. Thus, its highly accurate as a tool to ensure optimal hearing aid performance. This diagnostic service is exclusive to Family Hearing Aid Center of Hawaii.

Your Adapting Brain & Hearing Performance

Using hearing aids requires a break-in period in which the user’s brain adapts to processing hearing aid sound. If your hearing loss is caught in the early stages you will likely have a minimal adjustment time and enjoy immediate improvement. Conversely, if your hearing has suffered for years, your hearing aid fitting period will likely be longer and require more adjustment. Here’s a full list of factors that may affect your hearing aid fitting process:

  • The length of time you have experienced hearing loss
  • The length of time before you received amplification
  • The severity of your hearing loss
  • How well you understand speech
  • How well you understand speech in noise
  • How quickly you adjust to change
