People often say they are more comfortable than a pair of in-ear headphones. While there is a bit of an adjustment period, the benefits of continued use are worth it!
You should start to hear things you were not able to hear before. Many of the clients we work with tell us about being able to hear, and more importantly, understand their family again. Many family members tell us that they can hear better as well because the TV is no longer at such a high volume.
While we rarely receive complaints about discomfort, everyone's ears are different sizes. If your hearing aids are uncomfortable, let us know, and we can make some adjustments to the length of the tubing or size of the earbuds.
