20 Sounds We Love To Hear

28 June 2018

Hearing is a sense that people often do not fully appreciate until it is compromised. Beginning to lose your hearing can make you acutely aware of all the wonderful sounds that are so important in your life, and hearing aids play a vital role in making these audible again.

Here at Hidden Hearing, we love to find out which sounds our customers are most delighted to hear again, and we’re glad that our digital hearing aids are sensitive enough to pick these up. Our most discreet models sit inside the ear canal so they are not visible to others, and they easily adapt to different environments so that your listening experience is not compromised by a change in background noise or venue.

The 20 Most Magical Sounds:

Research shows that men and women often identify different sounds as their favourites, and that the sounds chosen can also vary according to age, lifestyle and location. However, twenty of the sounds that are consistently named as the best or most magical to hear include:

  • A child’s first word
  • Wedding vows
  • The words ‘I love you’
  • The sound of rain falling
  • The pop of a champagne cork
  • Bird song at dawn
  • A child laughing
  • Waves crashing onto the beach
  • A favourite band playing live
  • A thunderstorm
  • Christmas songs
  • Being proposed to
  • The theme tune of a favourite TV programme
  • A cat purring
  • Popping bubblewrap
  • Bacon sizzling in a pan
  • The kettle boiling
  • A fire crackling
  • A steam train whistle
  • Football crowds chanting

Do You Think You May Have Hearing Loss?

Hearing loss can be a difficult condition to seek help for, since many people still feel that there is a stigma attached to wearing hearing aids. However, untreated hearing loss can lead to many other problems, including linked conditions such as dementia and depression, as well as further deterioration of the hearing. For this reason, it is vital to seek help as soon as you realise that you have hearing loss, and our experienced team of audiologists will be happy to help you when you book a free hearing test with us.

Hearing loss has many causes, some of which are fully treatable, so it is important to seek help from an audiologist if your hearing changes. For example, some types of hearing loss can be caused by earwax blockages in the ear, and a simple earwax removal procedure can resolve this easily and quickly. However, if your hearing loss is found to be permanent, you will be able to try different types of hearing aids to find the best solution for you and your lifestyle.
