Improve Your Quality of Life with Assisted Listening Devices
Posted by Audibel Hearing Aid Center on December 16, 2014
When you have a hearing loss, communicating with others is already difficult enough. It is even more so in a loud setting with numerous distractions. Another frustrating aspect of living with hearing loss is the inability to hear the television in your own home. Captioning is always an option, but most people prefer to listen instead. When you are reading captions, it takes your attention away from the show and you may end up missing important parts of the story line. If you turn the TV up loud enough to hear it, family members may complain it's too loud for them.
At Audibel Hearing Aid Center, we help our customers find assisted listening devices that allow them to enjoy life on their own terms. The items described below are just two of the things you may wish to consider using in your Libertyville, Illinois home and out in the community. Mr. Wenc is happy to provide additional information after your comprehensive hearing examination.
This device eliminates the frustration and conflict over watching TV as a family. It contains a hearing aid circuit inside of a wireless headset that you wear while watching television. TV Ears automatically lowers background noise and amplifies the sounds that are often difficult to hear. Even people with a severe hearing loss can use TV Ears since it can amplify sounds up to 120 decibels.
This assisted listening device is ideal for social situations with a lot of background noise, such as restaurants and parties. The Pocketalker weighs less than three ounces and comes equipped with a headset and lanyard for wearing it around your neck. It increases the volume of people who are speaking to you while decreasing noise in the background. This device allows you to enjoy social activities near Libertyville just as much as someone with no hearing issues.
