This article applies to the following Eargo products:
When first wearing your Eargo devices, keep the volume low. Your brain will likely be hearing sounds you may not have heard for some time. Your brain will be like a kid who’s been cooped up in a car for way too long suddenly being cut loose on a beach. Just running around out there hearing everything it can. … Anyway, our point is, little sounds may suddenly seem very loud. Things like water running, bags of chips crinkling, paper crumpling, babies crying, using the restroom, traffic… Your brain needs a little time to get used to hearing these high-frequency sounds again. It probably hasn’t heard them for a long time. Give it a little while. Your first weeks with your Eargo devices will be a time of adjustment. These sounds will begin to fade into the background as your brain relearns which are important and which can be ignored.
