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.
