Getting Started With Your New Hearing Aids

Better Hearing Begins Now

You’ve embarked on your journey to better hearing and received your hearing aids, and Beltone is here to support you every step of the way. Read ahead to learn some of the most important things you need to know about your new hearing aids.

What Should I Expect From My New Hearing Aids?

Your Beltone hearing care professional has likely already told you a little about what to expect from your hearing aids in the weeks and months ahead. Here are some additional tips that may reveal more about what you need to know.

  • Give yourself time. You’ll need to give yourself time to adjust to the major life change of wearing hearing aids every day. The best thing you can do is commit to wearing your hearing aids every day so you get used to them.
  • Expect to hear new sounds. You may think your voice sounds strange (known as the occlusion effect) or that everyday sounds are too loud. You may even be confused by noise. But all of this is a perfectly normal response that will go away in time as you become used to having normal hearing again.
  • Make follow-up appointments. Your Beltone hearing care professional can help you switch out your domes, adjust your hearing aids for better performance or in-ear comfort, or help you set up your hearing aid apps so you can maintain total control of your equipment.
  • Call us anytime with your questions. Having trouble adjusting to your hearing aids? We’re here to help. Call us at 1-800-BELTONE to speak with one of our helpful representatives.
