How can I find out if I need a hearing aid?

Because hearing loss is so gradual, it’s not always easy to notice if you’re not hearing as well as you used to. Here are some signs you can look out for:

  • The TV’s volume is too loud for other members of your family
  • You find it difficult to keep up with conversations when there’s background noise
  • Chatting on the phone is tricky even when the room is quiet
  • You feel like people are mumbling a lot, and you have to ask them to repeat what they’ve said.

Often it’s your loved ones who notice a hearing loss before you do – so they might hint that you’re finding it difficult to hear too.

Luckily, at 20dB Digisound, it’s easy to find out if you how well you’re hearing. Our free online hearing check can give you an idea in only a few minutes. You can also book a free hearing test at your nearest 20dB Digisound centre by clicking here or calling us on 6338 9626.

If we think a hearing aid could help you, then you’ll be invited for further appointments to discuss the different options, possibly a hearing aid trial, and have your hearing aid fitted.

We know that the expertise, care and advice that’s available is just as important as the hearing aid you choose. That’s why all our appointments are free, and your hearing aids come with free aftercare for life – meaning that whenever you need us, you can book an appointment and we’ll help without it costing you a dollar.

We’ll help you choose the right hearing aid based on a few different factors: the first is the nature and severity of your hearing loss. We’ll also ask you about your lifestyle, the type of work you do, and your hobbies: for example, making a lot of phone calls, spending a lot of time in the car, having a very active social life, or spending more time at home are all factors that can help your hearing care professional advise you on which hearing aids will work best for you. They’ll also bear in mind your ease with technology, the style you’d prefer, and the shape and size of your ear canals when they present the different options to you.

If you are unsure, a no-obligation free hearing aid trial is also available at 20dB Digisound. Take them home, try it, and decide if the hearing aid is right for you after experiencing it yourself in the real world.

When you purchase hearing aids from 20dB Digisound, you will also benefit from a lifetime of aftercare. We promise to work together to help you get the most out of your hearing aids and give you the best hearing experience.
