Hearing care professionals can gain valuable insights to what their patients’ initial listening experiences might be like simply by listening to the hearing aids. In a novel experiment designed to put Hearing Care Professionals in the shoes of their patients and to illustrate how sound quality can positively color the initial experience trying hearing aids, ReSound field representatives were trained to demo ReSound LiNX Quattro hearing aids on HCPs in a similar way that HCPs might do with their patients.
We would like to thank Dorea Ruggles, GN Advanced Science, for her assistance with the statistical analysis in this paper, and Hans Christian Dreschler, GN Education & Training, for creating the demo used in the study.
