Whether you're an avid sports fan, a sit-com enthusiast, or a news junky, you don't want to miss out on what's happening on television. If you can't hear the TV, you'll have a difficult time keeping up with all the action!
However, if you have hearing loss, there are plenty of ways for you to better hear your TV.
Check out our helpful tips below:
Buy hearing aids with a "TV" setting
Many of our affordable hearing aids include a “Television” setting specifically for watching TV! The “Television” setting is also useful in moderately noisy situations, so you may find this setting helpful in areas outside your living room as well.
Get hearing aids with streaming capabilities
For the technologically savvy, hearing aids capable of streaming sound right from your television may be the best option. Hearing aids with wireless capabilities can also be used to stream music, connect with your mobile phone, and more.
Try changing your volume and settings
Take some time to adjust the volume and test out the various settings on your hearing aids while watching television. Try different volume levels and available settings to see what works best for you. Sometimes, adjusting your volume or changing to a different setting can make a big difference!
Use closed captioning
It can be helpful to use the closed captioning on your television even when you are wearing hearing aids. With closed captioning turned on, it’ll be easier to catch any words that you may have missed or misunderstood.
Limit background noise
To better hear the television, it helps to reduce any background noise. Turn off any household appliances that may cause background noise, like a fan or the dishwasher. Try to watch television in a quiet environment, so you can focus on the sounds you want to hear.
Try wearing wireless headphones when watching television! Wireless headphones are especially convenient if you feel like you are disturbing others by turning the television volume too high. There are a variety of wireless headphones for TV available at a wide range of prices.
