Assistive Listening Devices

While hearing aids can go a long way toward alleviating the difficulties encountered by loss of hearing, for many people they do not fully address the difficulties encountered. Assistive listening devices (ALDs) can be helpful when hearing aids are not quite enough to address the hearing problem or when the hearing loss is creating minimal problems but is not great enough to warrant the use of hearing aids.

The following represent a small selection of the most frequently used devices to augment the success attained with hearing aids. At Elite Audiology we can demonstrate a variety of these devices and guide you in the selection of appropriate technologies when needed.
