Do I have to wear two aids?
For people who have hearing loss in both ears the answer is YES!! We are designed to have two ears working equally. This is the way the brain is built. Certainly for those who can’t handle 2 aids, it is better to use a single aid, rather than none at all. The goal however should be to work towards binaural amplification (2 hearing aids). When we get closer to having 2 ears working equally, we take best advantage of the natural “wiring” from the ears to the brain.
