Our secret is in the testing and fine-tuning
If you've already had your hearing tested, your sensitivity to sound was measured within 5 decibels (5dB) of accuracy. That's the audiology standard and it works well but we take it a step further...
When you're spending thousands of dollars for high performance hearing aids, you should insist on getting the best results possible.
That's where we come in.
We test your hearing within 1 decibel (1 dB) of accuracy rather than 5 db. This measures your hearing 20% more accurately than a standard test and it allows us to fine-tune your Phonak hearing aids to a higher standard.
Zero decibels (0 dB) is the quietest sound audible to a healthy human ear. From there, every increase of 3 dB represents a doubling of sound intensity, or acoustic power. Can you imagine the difference that 5 dB makes?
When you wear hearing aids, even 1 little dB can mean the difference between hearing clearly and comfortably or cringing with discomfort every time somebody puts a cup down on the table or shuffles a newspaper.
If you've ever heard somebody complaining about hearing aids being noisy and uncomfortable, it's likely because the hearing aids weren't tuned properly.
When your hearing aids are programmed using our AFT process, your sounds are personalized to your exact needs, with an emphasis on comfort, clarity, and preferences for how you like to hear in your specific situations.
*High Frequency Hearing Loss: When you can hear but have trouble hearing in noise or speech sounds muffled - like people are mumbling... you're probably not hearing high frequencies (or treble) like you used to.
I am now able to hear birds again to the same degree as my birding friends that still have their hearing intact.
