A distraught senior man sitting on his couch suffering from a headache because his hearing aids were not properly adjusted.

Hearing aids are meant to help make up for your unique hearing loss condition. If your hearing aids are causing headaches or any other type of discomfort, whether you’ve been using them for years or you’re a new user, there’s a solution.

A correctly adjusted hearing aid will fit comfortably in your ear and give you the quality of amplification that meets your individual needs. If you’re noticing any pain or discomfort you should ensure that your hearing aid is adjusted precisely and that it’s the right device for you.

Your hearing aid needs to be adjusted if you notice any of these signs

If your hearing aids are not properly fitted, they can lead to headaches. The reason for this is that they are not being used correctly, or haven’t been adjusted for a while. Here are a few issues that could arise if you’re experiencing this problem:

  • Insufficient sound quality. Hearing aids that are not adjusted well can amplify high-intensity sounds, causing a loud screeching sound that’s aggravating and causes injury to your ears. Hearing aids in this condition can also make low intensity sounds inaudible.
  • Feedback noise. Wind and other background noise can be picked up and boosted by your hearing aid, also generating screeching annoying feedback.
  • Headaches and tinnitus. Loud sounds that are further amplified can also cause headaches and even tinnitus. Typically, this means the settings are too loud.

Over-the-counter hearing aids

Even though you can go to a local store and get a less pricey personal amplification device (over the counter hearing aid), these devices will not be customized for your personal hearing loss requirements.

Improving your hearing demands more than merely amplifying sounds because hearing loss is unique to each person. There are many instances of hearing loss in which individuals lose the ability to hear a certain frequency. In order for a hearing aid help people hear clearly in different environments, they will need accurate adjustment.

Professional hearing aid adjustment

Getting your hearing aid professionally adjusted is the best way to be certain that your device is fitted properly. We will take molds of your ears and use them to make a custom-fitted hearing aid device just for you. The settings will be adjusted to target your specific hearing loss situation after the proper fit is attained.

Your hearing aid should also make automatic adjustments, which will let you hear background noises in a variety of environments without interference. This might require a few visits to ensure you obtain the hearing aid that’s best for you and correct for your lifestyle. If you have severe hearing impairment, the adjustments to your hearing aid will be done in stages to allow your brain time to adjust to louder sounds.
