Re: OTC Hearing Aids WITH Telecoils
It is deeply disturbing to
learn that an audiologist says that 'OTC hearing aids are not
safe'. It is a totally unscientific generalization. It is
possible that ANY hearing aid could cause additional hearing
loss. This is if it delivers a too loud sound, causing
'ringing in the ears' and that warning sign is ignored.
Dispensed hearing aids should be set so that is cannot occur,
but certainly my dispensed hearing aids can be set to 'play
too loud for comfort'. Just don't do it! If you hear sound 'in
your ear' rather than 'out in the room', the sound is too
loud, so turn it down.
