How Can I Improve My Ability To Better Understand Speech?​

Understanding speech, especially in noisy environments is the #1 challenge that most of our patients face. Did you know that even people with normal hearing understand as little as 50% of what is being said as they age. Treating your hearing challenge isn’t about increasing volume, but rather, improving clarity.

Today’s technology is so far advanced that it primarily focuses on this critical challenge: improving speech understanding.

  • Do you often ask people to repeat what is being said?
  • Do you have a hard time understanding what is being said on your favorite TV program?
  • Is it difficult to be a part of the conversation in a restaurant or place of worship?
  • Are you finding that you can’t be fully part of a conversation because of this challenge?

You are not alone. 26 million Americans live with this same challenge. Our comprehensive testing process includes the key element of Speech in Noise testing (SIN). Years ago, most hearing centers didn’t have the ability to test and improve this crucial component of hearing. This was because the technology wan’t available to allow for improved speech understanding.

As mentioned above, today’s technology is not about making speech louder, but achieving clarity. Clarity is key.

It really doesn’t matter how loud something is made if you still can’t understand what is being said or can’t decipher the conversation you desire with noise happening all around you.

Our goal is to help keep your most important relationships intact so that you can live a fulfilling, happy, and healthy life.
