Binaural and Monaural hearing loss


Binaural: “Having or relating to two ears”

Monaural: “Of, relating to, or designating sound reception by one ear”

If you have a binaural hearing loss then you have a problem in both of your ears – if you have Monaural then it’s only one.

If you do have a binaural loss then it is very important that you wear hearing aids in both ears. Don’t be tempted to buy only one – in my opinion it would be better two buy two cheaper hearing aids than it would be to buy one expensive one. We use both of our ears to hear and if you wear only one hearing aid you will have big problems trying to locate the source of sounds and everything will sound very uneven. You won’t hear half as well with one aid, you’ll hear less.
