Why does my voice sound funny when I use my new hearing aids?

When you wear hearing aids for the first time, you will probably notice your voice sounds funny! You will hear your voice amplified through the hearing aid and some people describe this sensation as feeling "plugged up" or hearing your voice echoing. This is normal and will usually go away in a few days after you have given yourself a chance to get accustomed to your new hearing aids and learned to adjust the volume controls. However, there are adjustments the audiologist can make to relieve these symptoms, should they persist beyond the first few days, or it they are intolerable and need to be addressed immediately.
