Trouble Hearing On The TV? Here Is Why.

"Why is it so hard to hear on the TV? Blame the TV crew!"

"Turns out it was the set-up for the sound recording of the programs that contributed most to a poor listening environment. Background noise, poor microphone placement, substandard dialogue levels, and loud background music also made it hard to hear the main dialogue."

Sound Level Ratings Of Tulsa Area Restaurants

Thank you for requesting a copy of the Audiology of Tulsa, PLLC Sound Level Ratings for Tulsa Area Restaurants Guide. We hope that this information will be helpful to our hearing aid patients and their families when selecting Tulsa restaurants in which they can enjoy a meal AND carry on a conversation with their dining companions without the intrusion of unnecessary background noise.
We have measured the following sound levels using an Iphone Application called “Decibel Tenth”. It has been found to be accurate up to approximately 100dB. We have sampled sound levels for several minutes in each restaurant and used those data in determining an average sound level in each eatery. Please keep in mind that the number of people in a restaurant and time of day can both contribute to greater sound levels and we have tried to give a rough idea of crowd conditions in each at the time we measured.
You will notice that there is no mention of the quality of food or service in any of the listings. We are hearing experts, not food experts. The primary focus of our ratings deals with the question “How easily could someone with hearing loss communicate in each of these restaurant environments?”. For example, we always prefer booths over tables, with the higher seat-backs being preferable. Carpeting also helps absorb sound and usually lowers sound levels. Music, while possibly contributing to a “festive” atmosphere, is a detriment to most of us with hearing problems. Avoid setting beneath loudspeakers.
As a general rule, sound levels of 70dB or less make for ideal listening conditions for most listeners. 70-75dB levels are usually OK, but even this relatively low amount of sound can cause some difficulty for older listeners (particularly those with more severe hearing losses). Sustained sound levels above 75-80dB are going to be impair communication for most persons above the age of 40 who have even mild to moderate hearing losses. Also, you may notice that if we have visited a particular restaurant several times, there may be significantly different sound levels measured from one time to the next. This speaks to the inherent variability in any restaurant depending on time of day and how busy they are at a given time of day.

Study Shows A Link Between Osteoporosis And Sudden Hearing Loss.

Published June 11, 2015
HealthyHearing.com

"...those with osteoporosis are 76 percent more likely to develop sudden onset hearing loss."

"Using information culled from a national health database, a team lead by Dr. Kai-Jen Tien at the Chi Mei Medical Center in Tainan City, Taiwan compared 10,000 people diagnosed with osteoporosis between 1999 and 2008 to 32,000 people without the condition. 89 percent of the subjects were women. While, in general, those with osteoporosis were 76 percent more likely to develop SSHL, the results for women were even more grave: women with osteoporosis were 87 percent more likely to develop SSHL than the general population."

But no matter how impressive the newest hearing aids or cochlear implants were, Hoffman said he's seen many children bullied for being different.
"One of the moms told us that her son had taken [his hearing aids] and buried them in the sand," Hoffman said.
