The evolution of hearing aids and hearing care with Dr. Beck

As we traverse the audiology best practices and their transformation, Dr. Beck, our new co-host, sheds light on the crucial balance between comprehensive diagnostic assessments and functional hearing evaluations.

Hearing aid programming: Real ear measurement

In our chat with Dr. Leavitt, we talk about why those generic “best fit” settings may not cut it, and why it’s so important to aim for the gold standard set by the National Acoustic Laboratories (NAL) targets. We’ll swap stories and dive into how personalized real-ear measurements can seriously change the game, making a real difference throughout your hearing world.
