What is EAS?
Are certain sounds easier to hear than others? Do people always sound as if they’re mumbling? Do you feel that your hearing aids are just not good enough?
If this sounds familiar, you may be missing out on hearing high-pitched sounds. When you cannot hear high-pitched sounds, you have a type of hearing loss known as high-frequency hearing loss. This type of hearing loss is common in both children and adults.
EAS is the combination of two technologies: cochlear implant technology for high-pitched sounds, and hearing aid technology for low-pitched sounds. By using two different technologies in one device, you can hear the full range of sounds, making it much easier to chat with friends, enjoy music, and communicate in everyday life.
