I’ve had great success lately fitting the new hearing aids by Oticon. When I try these aids on new patients they don’t even notice the amplification. This is a far cry from the old speech I used to give about getting used to the “harsh,” and “microphone-y” sounds of last year’s aids. Not only does the sound of the aid seem natural but my patients are hearing better in background noise. Now, of course, results do vary but this is a great time to try new aids!
