If you're tired of asking people to repeat themselves, it’s time to get a hearing aid.
- Step 1: Test the aid to see whether it works well for you. Check return policy details in case you need to return it after purchase.
- FACT: Scientists conduct experiments on parasitic flies’ ears to improve the quality of hearing aids.
- TIP: Smaller hearing aids are less visible but usually less powerful and more expensive.
- Step 2: Choose a hearing aid that sits completely or partially in the ear canal, in the outer ear, or behind the ear.
- Step 3: Determine how much money you have to spend on a hearing aid, or what your health insurance will cover.
- Step 4: Determine whether you need a hearing aid for one or both ears, based on the recommendation of an audiologist.
