THE SCOOP ON ALL THINGS HEARING LOSS

From hearing loss causes and signs to treatments and FAQs, we’ve got the full scoop on how you can improve your hearing health and revive your hearing.

Signs of hearing loss may include: turning up the TV or radio higher than what others prefer, experiencing the perception that others mumble, asking people to repeat themselves often, and more. You might also find yourself leaning forward to hear a conversation or having trouble hearing in noisy situations, like in a crowded restaurant. We offer a convenient screening hearing check by clicking this link—eargo.com/hearing-health/hearing-check. Don’t wait if you believe you may have hearing loss.

Hearing loss ranges from mild to profound based on the degree of the loss of hearing measured from normal. The signs of hearing loss vary based on the degree and type of hearing loss. For example, if you have mild to moderate hearing loss, you may be able to understand speech in quiet environments but have greater difficulty hearing when there is background noise. However, if you have severe to profound hearing loss, it may be almost impossible to communicate in daily situations without hearing aids, cochlear implants, and/or the use of sign language. Different types of hearing aids help with different degrees of hearing loss. Eargo hearing aids are designed to help primarily with mild to moderate high-frequency hearing loss, which is usually due to wear and tear on your ears from noise exposure or aging. Our convenient hearing check can help you find out if an Eargo hearing aid can help you.

Sensorineural hearing loss is very common and is due to damage to the inner ear or auditory nerve from noise exposure, genetics, and natural aging. It develops over time and may sneak up on you. Hearing aids can usually help with this type of hearing loss and Eargo hearing aids are designed to help you get back into the conversation.

Conductive hearing loss is due to conditions that blocks the sound as if your ear is stuffed. It is often sudden or unexpected and all sounds are muffled or blocked in one or both ears. We recommend that you visit your doctor if you believe your hearing loss may be conductive, especially because conductive hearing loss may be temporary or treatable.

If you already have hearing test results, call and talk to a Personal Hearing Guide about whether Eargo is right for you. If you don’t have results from a hearing test, talk to a Personal Hearing Guide about Eargo’s hearing check at eargo.com/hearing-health/hearing-check. Eargo hearing aids are specifically designed to help those with mild to moderate high-frequency hearing loss hear better. This type of hearing loss is the most common and is caused by noise exposure or simply natural aging. Eargo hearing aids are designed to help you so you can hear life more clearly. Each Eargo device has 4 custom-developed Sound Profiles that are built on 30 years of research from world-renowned National Acoustics Laboratories and further refined with our own research and clinical studies. In addition to the Sound Profiles, Eargo has a mobile app as well. So, if you have mild to moderate high-frequency hearing loss, Eargo was meant for you.

Although it’s not always necessary to see a physician when you’re experiencing hearing loss, there are some instances when you absolutely should. If you’re experiencing a sudden hearing loss, pain, pressure, drainage, or other medical symptoms related to your ears, we recommend you visit your doctor.

Hearing loss can have a huge effect on your overall health and well-being. There are even studies linking untreated hearing loss to unemployment and lower income. It’s important to take care of your hearing health to keep it in the best shape possible, just like you take care of the rest of your body. Hearing aids are proven to overcome the stress and frustration of hearing loss and enhance your overall quality of life.

Tinnitus is often described as a ringing, buzzing, or hissing in the ears. We don’t know the exact cause of tinnitus, but there is a high correlation between tinnitus and hearing loss. If you are experiencing ringing, buzzing, or hissing in your ears, we recommend you visit your doctor. Your doctor may suggest a hearing aid since hearing loss and tinnitus often go hand in hand. Although a hearing aid doesn’t mask the tinnitus, it may help you focus on what you want to hear. Check back with us if your doctor recommends a hearing aid, to see if an Eargo hearing aid might be right for you.

Hearing aids help bring back the sounds you’ve been missing, especially the clarity of voices. Hearing aids help you get back into the conversation and improve your quality of life overall. Most people have no idea how many sounds have been missing from their life until they begin using quality hearing aids like Eargo. Hearing aids increase the clarity of speech by boosting the sounds you need to hear so you’re able to understand more easily. That means the conversation will go from sounding muffled to sounding clear, so you can be the sharpest version of yourself.

All hearing aids have a microphone, a digital amplifier, and a speaker. The microphone picks up sounds and sends them to the amplifier, which is actually a tiny digital processor that selects which sounds to make clearer and which sounds to ignore. It then gives those important signals a boost before pushing them through the speaker. The end result? Crisper, clearer sound with better understanding.

If you have hearing loss in both ears, then yes. Wearing two hearing aids helps you identify where sounds are coming from. It can also help make the conversation even clearer and easier to understand, especially in noisy environments.

Hearing loss is not just about you hearing less. Those experiencing hearing difficulties may also:

  • Skip out on social situations that they once enjoyed because of difficulty hearing.
  • Feel tired or stressed from straining to hear the conversation.
  • Feel annoyed or frustrated at others because they can’t understand them.
  • Feel embarrassed to meet new people or from misunderstanding what others are saying.

Ensuring good hearing health helps to promote the quality of life you deserve. If you ever feel some of these negative feelings are being provoked as a result of your hearing—or lack thereof—it’s perhaps a good time to contact Eargo to learn more. We have a team of experts to help guide you on your journey. There are many things that stress us out in today’s world, but hearing loss doesn’t have to be one of them.
