Why Hearing Aid Trials?

To provide James with feedback direct from our local community, Acute Hearing conducts field trials of the latest hearing aids at no cost. We look for 25 candidates to trial a pair of hearing aids for between 7 and 10 days. In return, we ask you to complete a before and after questionnaire. These trials provide us with direct feedback and allow us to understand the true positives and negatives of the new hearing aid.

We have recently completed hearing aid trials for three different types of hearing aids:

Hearing Aid Trial Results

Of the clients who participated in the trials 55% did so because they had noticed that their hearing was increasingly causing them problems and 45% of the participants felt they could benefit from hearing aids but had chosen not to do anything about it.

Before taking the trial, all of the participants noted that they wanted to follow conversations more easily, particularly in noisy environments. After completing the trial 86% of participants strongly agreed that it was beneficial to experience and trial a new release hearing aid before making a decision. More importantly, 88% of the participants noted a significant improvement in following conversations in a one on one situation and on the phone. More importantly, 73% of the participants noted an improvement in following conversations in noisy environments.
