Discussion Topic – High Frequency Hearing Aids and Audiometry
The blog posts which I normally write are designed to be informational and either provide technical, support or product specific information so this is a first for me. I thought that if i can get a response from some of my fellow audiology professionals it would help to build this particular post into a useful and informative conversation.
AS HEARING AIDS ARE CLAIMING TO OFFER MORE AND MORE BANDWIDTH AND OFFER AMPLIFICATION AT HIGHER FREQUENCIES, SHOULD HIGH FREQUENCY TESTING BE MORE COMMONLY USED?
My initial thoughts are that if the aids can offer usable amplification at frequencies above 8kHz then surely we should be testing above 8KHz to effectively use these capabilities.
Please leave comments below on this blog or feel free to email me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org , and I will gladly copy and paste it directly into this post.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this post and hopefully consider writing a response.
I look forward to reading your thoughts, best regards,
