Confused about your hearing loss?

Hearing loss can be confusing. It's often hard to get the time of a professional to get all your questions answered. Last week at Smart Step hearing we had so much fun at a lunch and learn in the Rock Creek area. We had 13 people join us to learn about hearing. When we got started, Darin asked people to share questions that they wanted to make sure he answered. I was so impressed by the list that was generated. Here they are:



Technology Developments

Bone Conduction vs digital aids

Service when you are travelling


Types of loss

Tinnitus/Ringing in ears

Hearing aids and ear buds


Warranty coverage – damage and/or loss

Hearing with Background noise


We spent an hour reviewing hearing loss and answering these questions before we took a break for lunch. Sandwiches, salads and soup were enjoyed while chatting with each other. So many of us had similar frustrating experiences over hearing loss. Darin offered to schedule complimentary hearing testsand most everyone signed up. If you are interested in joining us at our next lunch and learn, email Darin at and he’ll give you the details on our next event.
