Can You Hear Subtle Sounds?
Our ability to hear is extraordinary. Because we use our hearing every day, it may be difficult to distinguish when we start to not hear so well. Can you hear the birds singing outside? Do you hear the refrigerator humming at night? Or the pitch of a loved one’s voice?
If you can’t remember when the last time you heard a subtle sound was, then it may be time to make an appointment.
Will Hearing Aids Help
Hearing aids provide improvement in frequencies and volume that are powerful in helping us understand speech and other sounds so much better. With hearing aids, you can hear talking sounds – the tone of what someone is saying – and other nuances of hearing.
What exactly are the nuances of hearing? The Merriam-Webster describes “nuance” as: 1. a subtle distinction or variation. 2. a subtle quality. 3. a sensibility to, awareness of, or ability to express delicate shading as a meaning, feeling, or value.
These subtle sounds can be meaningful or mundane. Whether you can hear the instruments in your favorite song or the clicking of a turn signal, all sounds are important to individuals in their own way.
Why Talking Sounds Matter
Being able to recognize emotion behind what is being said is incredibly important. For those with hearing loss, it can be difficult to understand the tone in which someone is saying something. This is often due to the fact that you may be so focused on purely hearing the words that are being spoken. Recognizing talking sounds is an important part in effectively communicating not only with family, but with friends and coworkers as well.
Hearing aids will not only help you hear words more clearly, but they can also assist in understanding the tone of the speaker.
