Hearing Aid Success in Adults

The results of several studies suggest that the most important factor contributing to hearing aid success in adults is the positive support of family and friends. Successful hearing aid users commonly report, “The people around me think it was wise to get hearing aids,” and “The people around me think I hear better with my hearing aids.” Two other important factors leading to successful hearing aid use are the person’s attitude and ease of handling. Individuals who have a positive attitude about hearing aids and are comfortable handling them tend to be successful users. In other words, a positive attitude both before and after obtaining hearing aids contributes to success.  Not surprisingly, individuals with greater hearing difficulties tend to feel they are more successful with their hearing aids. However, this is only the third most important factor.
