Do I need to wear two OTC hearing aids?

    You should wear two OTC hearing aids if you have hearing loss in both ears.  Wearing two hearing aids makes it easier to identify where sound is coming from and makes speech clearer and easier to understand, especially in noisy environments.  You can wear just one hearing aid if you have one-sided hearing loss.
