Life Style Comparison
A Treatment Plan to Suit Your Listening Lifestyle
At Hearing Aid Counselors & Audiology, your hearing care professional will develop a treatment plan specifically for your listening lifestyle. Below you can learn more about some of the different listening lifestyles.
Active: Frequent Background Noise
An active listening lifestyle is one where you need the ability to hear and listen in a range of environments and situations, including conversations in noisy environments including:
- Social gatherings
- Family get-togethers
- Restaurants and bars
- Airports and other public locations
- Sporting events
- Concerts, movies and other entertainment venues
- Outdoor activities
- Routine: Daily Background Noise
A routine listening lifestyle is one where you need to listen to others and interact with small groups of people in some occasionally challenging environments.
Quiet: Occasional Background Noise
A quiet listening lifestyle is one where you lead a quiet life, with primarily one-on-one social interactions, with little or no background noise (or at home where you can control the background noise.)
Private: Minimal Background Noise
A private listening lifestyle is one where you need the ability to listen in very quiet environments that are free of background noise, with infrequent visits to locations with background noise.
