This is a statement we hear frequently. A common misconception is that hearing aids worsen your hearing capability when not using your devices. In fact, using hearing aids has been proven to help delay the natural progression of hearing loss!
Without getting overly technical, when you don’t address hearing loss your brain essentially “forgets” how to process high frequency tones – an atrophy of sorts – use it or lose it!
When using properly calibrated devices for your specific hearing loss your brain re-adjusts to a “new normal” of hearing as you reintroduce it to previously “forgotten” frequencies. As a result, your perception may be that things are more muted when you don’t have your hearing aids in than before!
