8.Keeps both ears active resulting in less hearing loss deterioration.
Research has shown that when only one hearing instrument is worn, the unaided ear tends to lose its ability to hear and understand. This is clinically called the auditory deprivation effect. Those wearing two hearing instruments keep both ears active. In fact, wearing one hearing aid when two are required might result ingreater deterioration of hearing loss in the unaided ear than when wearing no hearing aid at all.
9.Hearing is less tiring and listening more pleasant.
More binaural hearing aid wearers report that listening and participating in conversation is more enjoyable with two instruments, instead of just one. This is because they do not have to strain to hear with the better ear. Thus, binaural hearing can help make life more relaxing.
10.Feeling of balanced hearing.
Two-eared hearing results in a feeling of balanced reception of sound, also known as the stereo effect. Whereas monaural hearing creates an unusual feeling of sounds being heard in one ear.
11.Greater comfort when loud noises occur.
A lower volume control setting is required with each of two hearing instruments than with just one hearing instrument, resulting in better tolerance of loud sounds.
12.Reduced feedback and whistling.
With a lower volume control setting the chances of hearing aid feedback is reduced.
About 50% of people with ringing in their ears report improvement when wearing hearing aids. If the subject has a hearing aid in only one ear, there will still be ringing in the ear, which does not have a hearing aid.
14. Consumer preference.
When given the choice and allowed to hear binaurally, the overwhelming majority of consumers choose two hearing aids over one, when they have a hearing loss in both ears.
15. Customer satisfaction.
Research with more than 5,000 consumers with hearing loss in both ears demonstrated that binaurally fit subjects are more satisfied than people fit with one hearing aid.
