Hearing aids alone are not always enough to help people communicate effectively. An Assisted Listening Device (ALD) is designed to help individuals hear speech through noise and improve sound to noise ratio. Visit us at our Wexford, PA office to learn more about how assistive listening devices can transform your life.
Assistive listening devices are listening devices that are designed for a variety of listening situations and hearing abilities where it is difficult to hear speech through the noise. ALDs are designed to help you with environmental sounds both in the home and at work and improve the sound to noise ratio.
There are different types of ALDs:
Some situations, such as high exposure to city noise, will require more hearing capacity. Restaurants, grocery stores or simply places with poor acoustics can have a negative effect on the speech you wish to understand; that is where ALDs can provide support. Take note that assistive listening devices can be used alongside a hearing aid or cochlear implant to help you hear in specific situations.
At Francis Audiology Associates, we offer personal hearing amplifiers and FM/Digital systems. We also carry a wide assortment of personal listening devices with varying features that would suit your personal needs, from an adaptive Bluetooth device that link to your phone for improved sound quality to personal amplifiers to help you hear clearer sound no matter the setting. We follow strict guidelines from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association to assess your hearing needs. We are open from 8 am to 5 pm every Tuesday and Thursday and from 8 am to 4 pm every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Call or book an appointment today!
