First Ever Hearing Aid Know Podcast is Now Live



Hearing Aid Know Podcast

Well, don't blame me, Steve made me do it, just be thankful it is audio and not video, I draw the line at a video. What am I talking about, our first ever podcast for Hearing Aid Know. The first of many, we plan to undertake regular podcasts to accompany our articles. It makes sense really for us, while we believe the articles are very important, to get all of the information across sometimes would take thirty feet of text. So we plan to drive the core information in the articles, and where it makes sense, deliver the wider picture in our podcast. The topic of our first podcast, is hearing loss. 

Audiogram and hearing loss

Hearing loss is pretty much misunderstood by the general population, and I think the reason for that is our cultural understanding of hearing loss. Our cultural understanding of hearing loss is formed by what we see on TV or the theatre stage, or perhaps what we hear on the radio. Generally, we believe that hearing loss is all about volume, well, it isn't. In general, hearing loss is actually about clarity.

Most run of the mill hearing losses begin in the high-frequency area, this area of hearing is responsible for our perception of consonants in speech. Without consonants, speech is basically mush. In the podcast, I explain it in a little deeper manner, and I also explain why you can hear some sounds really well.
