Live Speech Mapping Validates Proper Hearing Aid Fittings in Tampa Bay, FL

Live Speech Mapping is an essential part of the hearing aid fitting process. However, studies show that only 30% of hearing healthcare professionals regularly perform this aided hearing aid test.  At Gardner Audiology, Live Speech Mapping is performed during every hearing aid fitting. Schedule an appointment to have Speech Mapping performed at our Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater and other locations. 

Why is Live Speech Mapping so important? 

The prescription settings recommended through your hearing aid manufacturer is often invalid because of the unique shape of your individual ear canals. Ears come in all shapes and sizes and one ear can even vary from the other for a single person. The shape of the ear changes the acoustics, or sound of a hearing aid. With Speech Mapping we can visually see the proper hearing aid adjustments for your specific anatomy and hearing loss. 

Speech mapping has also led to less need for follow-up adjustments and enhanced sound quality for our patients, meaning less trips for you to the office!
