Hearing with two ears

hearing-health-careThink of your hearing as a system – your two ears and your brain – constantly taking in a wide variety of cues and automatically, unconsciously and effortlessly identifying the sounds and locating where they are coming from.

Actually, it’s accurate to think of your brain as the center of hearing and listening.

To interpret sounds correctly, the information your brain receives must be as accurate and as detailed as possible.

When we are listening in challenging environments, locating where sound is coming from helps us understand. We mentally locate sounds in specific places and then we can focus on what’s important.

Sounds reach one ear fractionally faster and louder than the other – and the brain registers these subtle differences.
