Why does my voice sound booming?
There is a phenomenon called the occlusion effect, which is the change you hear in your voice when your ears are plugged, making your voice sound booming. People may notice it when they begin to wear hearing aids, change to new ones, or make the transition from one to two hearing aids.
Why does my voice sound sharp?
Most people with hearing loss lose their ability to hear high-pitched sounds first. When hearing aids restore some of these sounds to enhance speech understanding, it is not unusual to notice some sharpness.
If the sharpness is bothersome to you, simply reduce the volume. Many people find that with continued use of their hearing aids they no longer notice these effects within a few weeks, and can increase volume over time.
