My hearing specialist says I have normal hearing, but I still struggle to hear when there is a lot of background noise. What can I do?

Some people with normal hearing find it difficult to separate the sounds they want to hear from other background noises. More specialised hearing assessments will often show a problem with the sound going to the brain rather than a problem with the ears. Low-volume hearing aids and remote microphones can help in this situation.

At Resonate, we offer an Ear360 appointment where we focus on much more than just the usual hearing assessments. We also look at your ability to understand speech in noise and to what extent this impacts you. If this is an area of concern for you, we'll offer you expert advice and referrals for treatment. Book your Ear360 appointment today.
