When you are first fitted with hearing aids, talk with your audiologist about choosing devices that will give you ‘room to grow’ in case your hearing loss progresses. Oftentimes, programming changes can be made to your current devices to accommodate changes in your hearing loss. Reasons that you may consider new hearing aids include: Outliving the life of the hearing aids New technologies develop that offer better listening opportunities with new features Progression in your hearing loss beyond the capabilities of the hearing aids These days technology advances more quickly than hearing aids stop working. Talk with your audiologist to determine if there are features or accessories that can be added to your existing devices or if newer hearing aids would be most beneficial for you.
