You must know that hearing aids are created to meet the needs of many hearing situations. Hearing aids can be adjusted either automatically or via manual controls. It’s all up to you whether you want to listen someone’s whispering or don’t want to hear your grand daughters crying. It’s all your hands’ play.
Let’s have a look at some broad terms:
Automatic hearing aid volume control
Newer hearing aids apparently have in-built automatic volume control. This means that hearing aids can adjust the volume according to your sound environment. In this case, hearing aids automatically adjust the sound amplification like loud sounds are amplified less than soft sounds. And the amplification level depends only on your hearing loss.
Manual hearing aid volume control
Sometimes you may want to adjust the volume of your hearing aids manually. Basically, there are two volume control options in the hearing aids eg. fingertip and screw-type. Fingertip volume control – the most common type of volume control uses the small wheel that rotates with the twist of your fingertip. The screw-type volume control is a little inset control that can only be adjusted with the use of small screwdriver so that you can adjust the volume as per your needs.

Low/High Cut Tone Control
The low cut tone control is also known as the noise-suppression switch is used when you want to listen to conversations as low-frequency sounds/noise is amplified less with it.
Once the high cut tone control is activated, then the high-frequency sounds/noise is amplified less. Moreover, this control reduces the squealing sound of hearing aids. It also prevents loud noise from becoming louder, for example, dishes clanging, or paper crinkling.
Loud sounds can be easily adjusted with the maximum output control so that these can be amplified less. Loud sounds can be efficiently amplified in the hearing aids with the help of gain control. Output gain control allows you to adjust both the gain control plus the maximum output control at the same time.
You might take a little while for getting used to hearing aids. Here are few tips on how to use your hearing aids initially:
- Go slow and wear them only for one to two hours in a day.
- Try to avoid a noisy environment in the beginning and use your hearing aids in the presence of few people.
- Don’t forget to take small breaks during the day.
- Go to your hearing specialist if you face any pain in your ear.
- Don’t rush and start slowly using your hearing aids for prolonged period.
