If you wear a hearing aid in combination with a mouth mask and your surroundings also cover the mouth, you can run into the following.
As a hearing aid wearer you probably already have experience with one of the above challenges. The good news is that the problems are fixable. Think of: alternative mouth masks and aids, but also by adjusting the communication and settings of your hearing aids!
When wearing a mouth mask, important pitches are muffled. Good news: the hearing care professional world is constantly on the move. An adapted mouth mask program is now available for Signia hearing aids. When wearing a mouth mask, such a mouth mask program – through your hearing aid – compensates for the attenuation and distortion of speech. You can operate the special mouth mask program by means of your corresponding hearing aid app or via the button on your hearing aid.
Do you want to view the hearing aids with which you can easily hear voices from behind a mouth mask? Then view the hearing aids with optimal speech understanding programs.
Pay extra attention to the method of communication. Speak calmly and clearly. Look at each other while you talk and take turns speaking. Do you want people to see from a distance that you are hard of hearing while wearing a mouth mask? So-called “Limited Hearing” sticker sheets are available for textile use. You can stick these yellow stickers on your fabric mouth mask. People know from afar that they have to take your impaired hearing into account.
