Because of the shackles of traditional concepts and ideas, many people have misunderstandings about wearing hearing aids. They think that in most cases, hearing aids are not needed to hear clearly, hearing will decline faster when wearing hearing aids, and both ears can’t hear clearly, as long as wearing a hearing aid. These ideas have led to a decrease in the proportion of hearing aids worn by the elderly. But experts remind: many old people’s hearing loss is caused by the degradation of hearing organs, which is not paid attention to in the early stage, and only when it develops to moderate or even severe. Theoretically, there is 40 dB hearing loss. It is recommended to wear hearing aids. After wearing hearing aids, it can maintain speech recognition rate and delay hearing loss.
