Sometimes a cupped-hand can work wonders

Even though digital hearing aids do a remarkable job of helping us to hear better it is sometimes good to go back to basics.

A cupped-hand behind the ear can work wonders. If you are like me then you’ll sometimes put your hand behind your ear if you didn’t hear someone as an indication that you need them to repeat themselves, it’s a visual clue for the speaker but it actually does make a real difference to what you can hear. Try it next time you are watching the TV or are somewhere we you can’t quite hear or understand some speech, cup your ear and push it out a bit, I’m surprised how much more sound my ear captures when I do that.

Our ears are shaped to capture sounds, we can give them a helping hand when we need to.
