Better, yes. Perfect, no.

Q: When I wear my hearing aids, why do I still sometimes need to ask my wife and children to repeat what they said? They get upset and harshly ask me, “Don’t you have your hearing aids on?”

A: You will certainly hear better when 1) your ears are clean and healthy and 2) you use good hearing aids that are properly fit and adjusted for you. But you will never hear perfectly. Just like good glasses will not make you a speed reader or help you understand a college economics text book, but they will help you read the words better!

Even people with no hearing loss still miss the occasional word and phrase. Many factors could hinder you from hearing a word or two at times. The next time your wife or one of your children asks for something to be repeated, point it out to them. They need to appreciate that their own hearing is never perfect, so they should not expect yours to be perfect, either. If they continue to ask if you have your hearing aids on, simply remind them you are hearing better, just not perfectly.
