This unique type of hearing loss requires special attention. If you have trouble distinguishing women's and children's voices and miss words the ch,s,t,f sound, these are some tell-tale signs of a high-frequency hearing loss. The best results are achieved when hearing aids are used in both ears. Many behind-the-ear instruments can be used with a special open-type custom ear-mold (seep. IS). The goal of our fitting is to provide you with amplification of the higher tone while letting your natural hearing hear the lower tones. A good fitting will improve word discrimination and understanding of conversations.

The custom models on pages 5-9 and 13-14 can be specially designed to fit high frequency losses at no extra cost. These are appropriate for users who have good hearing up through 1500 Hz to 2000 Hz.

In the past few years there have been exciting new products launched by several of the leading manufacturers for high-frequency hearing loss. These are primarily small behind-the-ear style instruments with a tiny wire tube that comes around the front of the ear. These are digital circuit aids with very open, non-occluded earpieces. Prices vary, but these instruments are generally in the mid-digital technology price range.

This is the fourth pair of hearing aids I have purchased. The quality of sound is great, I am able to use with my phone much easier than any of the others I have had!! I appre- ci ate being able to order the aids at such a reasonable cost and the fact that they fit so much better! As far as I'm concerned, you have a customer for the rest of my lifetime.

Important Message for Customers
Congratulations on taking a step toward improved hearing. Research has shown that hearing instruments substantially benefit most people who wear them. But hearing instruments may not pro- vide the same advantages to all wear- ers. Individual hearing improvement depends on the fit of the hearing instruments, the degree of severity of the hearing loss, and the accuracy of the patient evaluation.

Also for proper fifing of a hearing aid, some customers may need from a licensed hearing aid dispenser or audiologist (I) the results of a hearing examination within the past S months and (2) an ear impression.
