Step 2: Hearing Aid Fitting - Pindrop Hearing

Hearing Aid Settings

Hearing aids arrive with factory settings, so we will need to programme yours during a hearing aid fitting appointment. We use a process called ‘Real Ear Measurement’; an essential step that measures the performance of the hearing aid while it’s in the ear – removing any element of guesswork.

How does Real Ear Measurement work?

  • Tiny microphones are placed in your ears, so that we can measure the exact levels of sound arriving at your eardrum. The output from the microphone is displayed on a screen for you to see.
  • We put in your hearing aids and play a series of calibrated signals, such as speech and music. We can then see the exact level of sound being produced by the hearing aids in your ears and whether the hearing aid is adequately restoring sounds.
  • We compare this level to the targets calculated from your hearing test results.
  • We make sure that you are totally happy with the sound coming through your hearing aids. We will also show you how to handle your hearing aids, so that you are comfortable using them at home.

You’ll then be able to take your hearing aids home to start making the most.
