Hearing aids will not restore your normal hearing, they are an aid for hearing, not a replacement.. With practice, however, a hearing aid for profound hearing loss or moderate hearing loss will increase your awareness of sounds and their sources. To get the best results out of any hearing aid you will need to wear it regularly, so select one that is convenient and easy for you to use.

Other elements to consider when you rate hearing aids include parts or services covered by the warranty, estimated schedule and costs for maintenance and repair, options and upgrade opportunities, and the hearing aid company’s reputation for quality and customer service.
