Living with a problem like the loss of hearing, to any degree, can be troublesome and possibly have a disruption on a normal lifestyle. However, websites like Audika.dk are doing their best to try and make someone with hearing loss’s life as near normal as possible. These websites do not only provide hearing aids but also make it as easy as possible to get one but not just any one, one which is right for your lifestyle and correct for your level of hearing loss.
Hearing loss can have many different levels, often depending on the cause of the loss. There are of course those with hereditary problems who may have suffered some degree of hearing loss since birth. Others may have suffered hearing loss after an accident or from being too close to a loud explosive sound but the majority of people suffering at least some level of hearing loss, are the elderly whose hearing continues to worsen as they get older.
Although those born with hearing loss and those who acquired by accident, may maintain the same level of hearing loss for the rest of their lives, the elderly’s hearing continues to get worse every year and so they need replacement hearing aids on a regular basis. The website above though has taken that into consideration and has made available online, hearing tests to ensure the correct hearing aid is bought from them.
There are three main types of hearing aid usually available and they are the wrap around the back of the ear type, the rest in the ear type and the so called invisible hearing aids which fit inside the ear canal so they cannot be so easily seen. Those people that have used hearing aids before will probably know which type suits them best but for those that don’t, the website offers free trials of the ones which a customer believes will suit them best. If it does they can buy it at the end of the trial but if it doesn’t, they can try a different one before making a purchase.
The two types which fit in the ear are miniaturized receiver, amplifier and speaker and although the other type fits around the ear instead of inside it, it is still similar. It was discovered a long time ago that bone is an excellent transporter for sound waves and so the around the ear hearing aids receive the sound waves, amplify them and then pass them onto the small bones behind the ear. These small bones in turn pass those sound waves on to the brain, through the boney skull.
All three types are known to work well and so the choice of which one you have is a personal one although price may play a role in your decision as they all come with differing prices. For ease and convenience though, these websites are probably the best way to get your hearing aid with the minimum of fuss and in the minimum of time without the need for appointments.
