Hearing aid benefit of open fitted hearing aids – An evaluation
An open fitting is suitable for persons with sloping hearing loss and relatively good low fre-quency hearing. Sensory neural hearing losses often have this type of configuration. A large ventilation canal gives a greater feeling of comfort and less occlusion. The purpose of this study was to look at the hearing aid benefit of open fitted hearing aids. Self report question-naires were sent out to 102 patients who were given ReSound AIR during the year of 2006 in Uddevalla. The study showed no significant differences in how men and women answered the questionnaire. Neither were there any significant differences in how persons with noise in-duced hearing loss selfreported hearing aid benefit compared to the persons without noise induced hearing loss. The study showed there were significant differences in how persons with tinnitus answered two of the questions compared to the rest. Otherwise there were no significant differences. The participants in the study generally indicate that they have a great benefit of their hearing aids.
