You think you hear better than you do
They know, and deep down, you do, too.
What is happening there is your brain is compensating by guessing at what people around you are saying, and not surprisingly, you can often guess right, or at least close.
But you’re not going to get it 100 percent, and that can be frustrating for you, for family, for friends, and at work it can have some pretty negative unintended consequences.
No need to worry, though. Hearing technology has come a long way, to a point where cost really isn’t an issue, and if you’re concerned about how they look, and will make you look, there are many models that are virtually unnoticeable.
You may be the right candidate for custom-fitted aids that reside in your ear canal, making them invisible when worn. Other hearing aids also range in size and color and can be very cosmetically discreet. Besides being quite chic, today’s hearing aids are more high-tech, even offering Bluetooth® technology.
