Software-Based Hearing Profile Improves Hearing Aid Fitting Process

AudiologyOnline

The Connexx Hearing Profile provides numerous advantages for both patients and hearing care professionals. The consideration and use of individual information on the hearing characteristics results in a selection of patient-specific first fit prescriptions. In a real-world field study described in this article, the Hearing Profile was shown to be a valuable tool for hearing care professionals, not only by providing an individualized first fit with an appropriate target prescription, but also a means to leverage the cooperation between professionals and patients which results in improved fitting success.
