Hearing Healthcare Tip: Full access to high frequency sounds


hearing healthcareHave trouble hearing certain sounds? Sounds such as “s” and “th” can be particularly difficult for people with hearing loss.

Speech Rescue™ is a breakthrough Oticon technology that “rescues” these sounds for your brain to hear. It works by creating copies of the high frequency sounds and “pasting” them into a lower frequency range, where you can hear them.

Unlike similar technologies, Speech Rescue™, available locally through Hearing Healthcare of Virginia, leaves the original details in place and positions the copy into unoccupied space in the frequency range for unrivalled fidelity and clarity.

About Oticon Dynamo

If you are very hard of hearing, you know all too well there’s a long way from hearing sounds to making sense of them. Even with a “powerful” hearing aid, critical high frequency sounds are often lost, making it hard to catch the meaning. Developed for people with severe to profound hearing loss, Oticon Dynamo hearing aids fill in the missing speech details so that you understand more and can stay in the conversation. More online at Oticon.com.
