Do I need a hearing aid for both ears?
While you might not think you need to wear hearing aids in both ears, ask your hearing healthcare professional. You may not, depending on the severity of your hearing loss, but if you do they can explain why it’s easier for your brain to interpret sound better with amplification in both ears. And if you do need two hearings aids instead of one, take heart. According to the Better Hearing Institute, about 90 percent of patients need hearing aids for both ears.
