Hearing loss is a common problem in the United States, with somewhere in the range of 30 million Americans having detectable levels of hearing loss in one or both of their ears. Hearing loss can be damaging to daily routines, self-reliance, and personal relationships without the proper approach to addressing the problem.

Assistive Listening Devices

Assistive listening devices come in many shapes and sizes and are designed to provide you with an enhanced hearing experience in both general and specific conditions. 

Given that hearing loss is rising worldwide, but especially in technology-rich nations like the United States, the U.K., Germany, and Japan, incredible strides have been made in the last few years in regards to assistive listening technology.

From small, more sensitive, and discreet hearing aids to Bluetooth applications that allow you to customize your hearing experience based on specific circumstances you find yourself in, improved hearing is more effective and easier to achieve than ever before, and Valley Hearing Center can help you find the right assistive listening device for you.

Cochlear Implants

Cochlear implants are a specific kind of assistive listening device that is designed to address the needs of hearing loss patients with severe to profound hearing loss. While not the right choice for everyone, it’s good to know that if you are severely hard of hearing, or you have a degenerative hearing loss condition, there are still options that allow you to retain a portion of your auditory sense.

Hearing Management Training

Hearing management training, also sometimes called auditory training, is a series of different exercises and trainings to help people with hearing loss learn to identify, discriminate, comprehend, and detect auditory input, and enhance their own cognitive approach to listening.

Additionally, modules and walkthroughs that are designed to help people using assistive listening devices become familiar with their hearing aids, learn to navigate auditory programs on computers and in public spaces, and other supplement hearing technologies can maximize a person’s ability to take advantage of the assistive listening technology at their fingertips.

Custom Earplugs

For those who are looking to mitigate damage to their hearing and prevent unnecessary hearing loss in recreational and occupational environments, custom earplugs and hearing protection are available.
