Face Masks Degrade High Frequency Sounds

Masks decrease high frequency speech sounds (which are critical to speech understanding) by 5-10dB, depending on the kind of mask that is used. If you wear hearing devices, you may need a manual “mask program” that compensates for the decreased speech signal while in public settings. If your hearing devices are bluetooth compatible, you have the ability to make changes from the mobile app yourself. We can show you how to make those changes, or create a manual mask program, or both.
