Tips for Enjoying Conversation at a Restaurant for Those with a Hearing Device
To have the best hearing experience possible at a restaurant, people who use hearing aids should sit in a way that takes advantage of the device features.
When choosing your seat, do sit in a spot where you are facing the person you want to talk to and where the noise of the room and other tables is behind you. This will reduce the amount of background noise you hear and help you hear your conversation partner more clearly. Try not to sit in a spot where you are facing other tables and the noise of the restaurant. This only increases the number of talkers and background noise you hear and will make your conversations more difficult to understand.
The video below explains the best places to sit to limit background noise and improve your ability to understand conversation.
