Compared to using two hearing aids, a bimodal hearing solution is proven to help people understand speech and improve the clarity of words in various listening environments, including noisy listening situations.4, 5, 6 The benefits of bimodal hearing also include the following:
- Improved hearing in quiet and noise
- Better sound quality and music appreciation7
- Prevention of auditory deprivation8
- Improved ease of listening9, 10
- Superior sound localization11
