Brain Hearing

Did you know that more than 45 million Americans suffer from hearing loss?
Hearing loss is more common than most individuals think and, unlike the most common stigma, it doesn’t just affect the elderly population. Hearing loss can occur in individuals of all ages and, the older we get, the higher the chance we have of developing it. After all, while there are many causes of hearing loss in both children and adults, the most common cause of hearing loss is aging.
Despite the high prevalence of hearing loss, many Americans today are able to enjoy a life full of sound thanks to hearing advances. Today’s hearing aid market includes incredibly advanced technology that will improve your ability to hear comfortably. Almost 9 million Americans take advantage of the assistance hearing aids offer in an effort to lead social, successful and happy lives. After all, living with undiagnosed hearing loss can be detrimental to one’s health and is associated with issues like cognitive decline, depression, social anxiety and isolation.
At Mountain-Ear Hearing Associates, we want to ensure you’re living your best life.

BrainHearing technology processes more sound, enabling the user to hear more sound, more clearly, without having to work harder. The technology is composed of three components that provides super speech recognition, locates the sources of sounds and enables better understanding and retention of softer voices. BrainHearing technology can be customized to meet the unique needs of a patient’s type and degree of hearing loss.
Benefits of BrainHearing technology include:

  • Better connection with family and friends
  • An active social life
  • Hearing softer sounds more clearly
  • Better sound distinction
  • Decreased social isolation
