All Hearing Aids Are not Created Equal According To MyHearPod.com Founder

An open fitting is when the fit of the hearing aid leaves most of the ear canal open to hear low frequencies, with only a small tip in the ear to amplify the high frequencies. By using any hearing aid that fills up the ear canal, you would actually prevent someone from hearing low tones - so they would actually be worse off than before they had a hearing aid," Wohlers said.

So how exactly does one find out if they have a high frequency hearing loss? The best test to determine if you have high frequency hearing loss, Wohlers suggested, is to simply sit and close your eyes, and have a friend say one of the following words: "Feet", "Teach", "Fish", or "Keep". If someone is unable to hear the higher frequencies, or the consonants, they most likely would not be able to repeat the spoken word back.

"It's important that the eyes stay closed, since a lot of people rely on lip reading without realizing that they do," Wohlers emphasized.

The Hearing Loss Association of America also states that while 95% of Americans with hearing loss could be successfully treated with hearing aids, only 22% actually use them.
