Musicians suffering from hearing loss are scared to lose what is the most important for them: making and listening to music. They dispose of very educated and trained hearing capacities. Especially when talking to sound engineers or piano tuners, technical specifications of hearing aids can easily be checked. The most disadvantaged musicians in terms of hearing aid adjustment are still the singers. They suffer from occlusion and produce very loud sounds inside their heads. And in the pause, they need to understand the conductor. Music is very variable, and so should be the fitting strategy of the audiologist who programs their hearing aids.
