Assistive Listening Devices to the Rescue!

Assistive Listening Devices to the Rescue!

A Primer to Help You Get Started

© February 2008 by Neil Bauman, Ph.D.

Hard of hearing people often lament, “Hearing aids don't work well for me, particularly in noisy places such as while driving in the car or talking in noisy restaurants.” They then ask, “What can I do in order to better hear my spouse and friends under such conditions? Being unable to communicate freely is putting a strain on my marriage and my friendships.”

Unfortunately, when most people lose some of their hearing, they are told to get hearing aids, as though hearing aids were the whole answer to hearing loss. The result is they become disillusioned with their hearing aids.

You see, hearing aids are not perfect, and in some listening situations such as in noisy places, or when you are at some distance from the speaker, they can be almost useless!

That’s where Assistive Listening Devices come in. They can largely overcome these two main limitations of hearing aids (noise and distance), and thus help you hear awesomely better.

Picture this. You have your hearing aids on and are sitting in your living room trying to listen to your favorite TV show. Only one problem. Your young grandkids are playing and shrieking right at your feet. Your hearing aids are picking up and amplifying all their racket. Your frustration mounts as you miss most of your program. Your hearing aids are just not helping you in this situation.

Now picture this same scenario. The grandkids are making just as much noise by your feet as before—but you sit there oblivious to their shrieks as you enjoy your favorite TV program—hearing it clearly without any interference. The difference is like night and day. That is what Assistive Listening Devices coupled with your hearing aids can do for you. Sounds incredible, doesn’t it?—but once you’ve tried it, you’ll know it’s true!

Generally you can use assistive devices with, or without, your hearing aids—but teamed up with your hearing aids, they can make an awesome combination.

Benefits of ALDs

There are two major benefits of Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs).

First, ALDs can bring distant sounds close to your ears. When you use ALDs properly, it sounds as if a person is talking directly into both of your ears at the same time, and not from a distance. As a result, their speech sounds much clearer—you understand more than you would with hearing aids alone. This is because with ALDs you now hear more of the high-frequency sounds that give speech much of its intelligence. Since these sounds are lost in the air with increasing distance, your hearing aids don’t pick them up as the distance increases. However, properly-used assistive devices do. This makes an enormous difference to your understanding people talking.

Second, ALDs, when properly used, cut out most background noise since the microphone is much closer to the speaker’s mouth than it is to the surrounding ba...
