What to expect when wearing hearing aids for the first time
Expect an adjustment period when you begin to test drive the hearing aids. The average person with hearing loss waits five to seven years before treatment, so you will most likely experience an adjustment period to hearing sounds more fully. The brain needs time to become familiar again with the high-frequency sounds of speech and environmental noises.
Much of the background noise that you have possibly missed out on as a result of your hearing loss will sound new to you, so you will initially find it harder to shut out. After some time, it will get better as your brain adapts to these sounds again. Eventually, they will become less and less noticeable as your mind gets better at tuning them out.
