microphone is placed in the ear canal. While the hearing aid processes and amplifies the various sounds, the resulting output from the hearing aid is measured in real time at the level of the ear-drum. Real ear measurements are considered the “gold standard” method for achieving a proper hearing aid fit. Without conducting these measurements, it is impossible to accurately predict that an individual’s prescription has been achieved.
The benefit of this technology for our patients is improved clarity, better sound quality, fewer follow-up visits, and the peace of mind of knowing that your hearing instruments are optimized and providing you with maximum benefit.
