One of the biggest challenges to providing patients with the most natural hearing correction is being able to simulate real-life settings in the clinical office. Traditional fittings rely on the hearing aid wearer telling us if the sound seems more or less natural at different settings. The problem with that approach is that it does not include all of the visual and auditory distractions that can affect a person’s ability to listen to conversation. It is almost impossible to provide the best programming in a clinical office setting. Upon leaving the office, Patients become disappointed that their hearing instruments fail to provide the same quality of sound that they provided in the structured office setting.
Gulf Gate Hearing Aid Center has met this challenge with Audio Reality™, Using a large flat screen TV and a 5.1 surround sound system, this tool simulates real-life difficult listening environments, allowing patients to experience the performance of their hearing instruments in settings as diverse as a noisy restaurant, a moving car, as well conversations from a distance at home.
The use of Audio Reality™ has significantly improved patient satisfaction with hearing instruments. Audio Reality™ can be used to test the efficiency of all hearing aids. If you currently wear hearing instruments and feel there is room for improvement in their overall performance, contact us for a complimentary demonstration of Audio Reality™.

“The beauty of Audio Reality is that it can be used to help us optimize any hearing instrument, no matter what brand or model, not just today’s most advanced models,“ adds Andrea. “Hearing correction is very personal; for me it was about hearing my wife, especially in noisy environments and being able to communicate on my radio show with confidence.” – Charlie.
