Noise Desensitization Therapies
The Listening Program – trains the brain to better receive, process, store, and utilize the valuable information provided through the varied soundscapes in our lives such as music, language, and our living environment.
The Listening Program is a personalized, adaptive sound brain fitness program designed to target specific areas of brain performance; executive function, communication, auditory processing, social & emotional, stress management, motor coordination, and creative expression.
Earobics – a computer program that assists in the development of phonemic awareness, auditory discrimination, attention, and decoding skills. Comprised of six fun, interactive games, the program gets progressively harder as the student makes progress. This adaptive training technology means each experience is customized based on student performance.
The Sound Pillow® – is a personal audio device consisting of a hypoallergenic pillow with two virtually undetectable stereo speakers. You use it by simply plugging the pillow’s standard headphone jack into a personal listening device (CD player, MP3 player, iPod, iPhone, sound machine, laptop, etc.) and enjoying a restful night’s sleep without disturbing your roommate or bed partner.
The Sound Pillow® Sleep System – pairs the Sound Pillow with an easy-to-use MP3 player pre-loaded with sleep-inducing binaural music, nature sounds, and white, pink, and blue noise files. The soothing sounds and music were designed to relax the body and “slow down” the brain to help promote sustainable sleep. The Sound Pillow Sleep System is an affordable, natural solution for sleep deprivation caused by tinnitus, past traumatic experiences, anxiety, and the stresses of everyday life.
“Dr. Cohen really opened my eyes…and ears. After fitting me with good hearing aids, she explained that hearing aids are only part of good hearing. Your ears hear the sounds but your brain is what makes them understandable. So she worked with me on a program to train my brain to better understand what my ears were now hearing well. And did that make a big difference. Thanks to her, my hearing is as good as when I was a teenager. She’s a great combination of professional and friendly.”

Restore Your Hearing Clarity
Many of today’s hearing aids use narrow directionality to help block out external sounds. This leads to an under-stimulation of the brain and ultimately to less enjoyable and effective social interactions. The cutting-edge hearing aids offered at Hearing Loss Solutions are able to process sound more efficiently. The result is a clear sound that delivers a rich acoustic experience. This full soundscape empowers your brain to choose what it wants to focus on, improving speech clarity while simultaneously reducing the amount of required mental effort.
The Secret to Improved Hearing Begins With Your Brain
You hear with your brain, not with your ears. Hearing, and especially speech understanding, is a cognitive process, not a mechanical one. Your ears receive sounds, but then your brain must process those sounds to give meaning to you.
When your ears receive sounds, your brain performs four tasks simultaneously:
- Orient according to the position of sounds, using both ears
- Separate sound sources
- Focus on what’s important
- Recognize what each sound is and make sense of it
Whenever there are missing sounds, your brain tries to fill the gap – an often difficult and exhausting process. Good hearing isn’t simply a question of making sounds loud enough. It’s about helping your brain understand the sounds you hear. That’s why our team at Hearing Loss Solutions has moved from an “ear first” to a “brain first” approach to hearing.
How Does the Technology for Our Hearing Aids Work?
NeuroTechnology™ helps your brain transform the sounds of your life into meaning, while preserving the context around you. NeuroTechnology™ is supported by a number of innovative features in a wide variety of hearing aids, too.
With NeuroTechnology™ treatment, you will be able to enjoy 3 key improvements to your hearing clarity:
#1 — SUPER SPEECH RECOGNITION
Speech Guard works to make the world and all its sounds as clear and distinct as possible. The technology provides clinically evidenced improvements to speech understanding in noisy situations and makes it easier to engage actively in conversations. It helps to reduce the effort required to understand speech and makes it easier for you to select and switch between conversation partners.
#2 — LOCATE THE SOURCES OF SOUND
Spatial Sound supports your brain’s ability to locate where sounds are coming from, so you can respond to conversations and sounds around you.
Our ability to determine precisely where sounds are coming from can be crucial in everyday life. Your spatial hearing helps you take appropriate action when sounds come from different directions and sources, by either moving to safety or turning your head to optimize your hearing conditions. Spatial Sound helps you use the differences in sound at the two ears to create the auditory world around us. This makes it easier to orientate and locate the sounds around you.
#3 — INCREASED UNDERSTANDING OF QUIET VOICES
Soft Speech Booster enriches and increases the number of details in soft speech while maintaining a high level of sound quality.
Making sense of soft sounds is an important part of making sense of a listening situation – moreover, they provide the details for understanding soft speech. Soft Speech Booster improves soft speech understanding by up to 20% and opens the way for achieving even greater satisfaction. With the Inium Sense processor, you get more gain (hearing aid amplification) on soft speech enriching delicate moments and private conversations without compromising feedback and sound quality.
