One Hearing Aid vs. Two Hearing Aids

One Hearing Aid vs. Two Hearing Aids

We have two ears for good reason. If you have hearing loss in both ears (bilateral hearing loss), then you are most likely a candidate for two hearing aids. Here are some reasons why two hearing aids are better than one:

  • Better understanding of speech
  • Better understanding in group and noisy situations
  • Better ability to tell the direction of sound
  • Better sound quality
  • Smoother tone quality - Wearing two hearing aids generally requires less volume than one.
  • Wider hearing range - A person can hear sounds from a further distance with two ears, rather than just one.
  • Better sound identification
  • Keeps both ears active resulting in potentially less hearing loss deterioration
  • By wearing two hearing aids clients report that listening and participating in conversation is more enjoyable
  • Feeling of balanced hearing
  • Greater comfort when loud noises occur - A lower volume control setting is required with two hearing aids than is required with one hearing aid. The result is a better tolerance of loud sounds.
  • Reduced feedback and whistling - With a lower volume control setting the chances of hearing aid feedback is reduced.
