Amplification and Assistive Devices (AAD)
Instructional Level: Intermediate
Hearing science and research have shown two ears are better than one. In this course, we review how this logic extends into the realm of direct streaming or wireless acoustic streaming with hearing aids. The recent increase in patient use of technology with streaming capability has prompted studies to evaluate bilateral versus unilateral benefit. Results indicate routing a signal bilaterally provides superior sound quality and speech understanding delivered to the listener.
