When the medical process has been completed, we can advise you about the possibilities of a hearing aid.

better Adjustment of a hearing aid
Correctly setting up a hearing aid is often difficult. This may lead to people wearing the hearing aid less often. It is often quite possible to adjust the hearing aids better. Often other earmolds can be tried and settings changed. Sometimes a different hearing aid may be advised or additional aids such as a TV solution or solo equipment may be prescribed. It is therefore certainly worthwhile to make an appointment for this.

Second opinion on the hearing aid
If you are about to purchase a hearing aid, but are not sure whether the chosen hearing aid is the best solution for you, it may be advisable to request a second opinion. Before purchasing the hearing aids, it is possible to do an objective final check at KNO MC. We will then evaluate whether the devices provide sufficient improvement and whether you are satisfied with them.
