When your hearing starts to fade, finding the right hearing aid is essential. Once you find the perfect fit, your audiologist will program your device and make sure you are satisfied with the sound quality. Even though sounds will be much crisper you should still be aware that even the smallest, most unnoticeable programming issues can stop you from getting the best results from your devices. To help avoid this, technology offers useful options for testing hearing aids, such as Verifit.
One of the top rated hearing aid fitting options on the market is Verifit. For over a decade now, Verifit has offered the leading technology when it comes to testing hearing aids, ensuring that each individual walks away with the best fit possible. With the recent release of the Verifit2, results are now more reliable than ever.
The Verifit2 tests hearing aids in two ways. The first is by using a probe, to test the devices while they are being worn by the patient. This permits the system to accurately test sounds as the patient is hearing them. Additional testing is completed with the hearing aids inside the Verifit2 system testing box.
Each process is facilitated by an audiologist, but the Verifit2 is equipped with features to make sure the patient understands the results too. If something feels off with the sound of your hearing aids, the tests will show it visually, and you will be able to pinpoint the problem. If you have an ITE (in the ear) hearing aid, all it takes is a few adjustments and your device will be more accurately tailored to your needs.
Another standout feature of this technology is the ability to test the hearing aids in pairs; this is done through the system’s binaural test box. This is the first and only hearing aid testing system to have this technology. Now that hearing aids are being programmed to work in pairs, it only makes sense to test them in pairs. The Verifit2 can test the devices while they are paired using both of the testing methods. These factors work together to create the most accurate results available.
The Verifit2 offers a more sleek and compact design than its predecessor. With only one wire connecting the patient to the system, the testing process is smoother and simplified. This system can test patients of any age, including children. The testing time has nearly been cut in half compared to the previous Verifit system.
The technological advancements are another stellar reason to rely on the Verifit2. The binaural testing box is a huge advancement for the system, along with its ability to test amplification up to 16kHz. Hearing aids have been providing amplification over 8kHz for a while, with little insight into how much higher amplification actually benefits the user. Now that this system is able to test up to 16kHz, we can begin to gather these highly amplified measurements.
You want the comfort of knowing your audiologist is using the most reliable testing system for your hearing health. Whether you have been wearing hearing aids for years, or you are just getting fitted for your first pair, avoid wasting time and money on mediocre devices. The Verifit2 system is the most advanced and accurate solution on the market. Believe us when we say, your ears deserve this type of quality.
