Play an active part in life

Life is full of precious moments.
The right solution can help you never miss a single one.

Not just sound quality.
Life quality.

Improving your hearing is about much more than frequencies and decibels – it’s about your ability to engage fully with life and the people you care about.

With hearing loss, your brain is constantly at work trying to extract meaning from noise. Hearing aids can help your brain make sense of the sounds and let you understand more with less effort. You will get less tired and less frustrated, and you will have the energy to enjoy and take part in life around you.

Do you recognise early signs of hearing loss?

Ask yourself these 6 questions. If you can answer YES to more of them, it might be signs of hearing loss, but you need a professional hearing test to determine it.

  • Do you experience that people around you mumble or speak softly?

  • Do you find conversations in restaurants or crowded places difficult?

  • Do you often have to turn up the volume on your TV, radio or phone?

  • Do friends and family members complain that they have to repeat what they say to you?

  • Do you have to look at people’s face in order to be able to understand what they are saying?

  • Have you noticed that everyday sounds, like the twittering of birds, footsteps or the clock ticking, are gone?

Hearing loss in children

We start to develop language from the moment we are born. Even though children have not yet learned to talk, they are constantly listening. With hearing loss, the basic development will often be delayed, so every minute counts.

Children with hearing loss often have difficulties with communicating because they are unable to hear sounds around them – maybe even their own voice. If your child shows signs of hearing loss like not being startled by loud sounds, difficulty locating sounds or delayed ability to understand or speak (for his/her age) it is important to get a hearing test. The sooner the hearing loss is identified and treated, the better the chances of a brighter future.
