When a person hears with only one ear, locating sound in traffic is a problem.
Many noises which sound almost alike when heard with one ear can be identified more easily when hearing with both ears.
Binaural hearing helps us to sort out and understand individual voices. Prosody, Melody and Temporal language cues depend on binaural hearing.
Binaural hearing requires less volume, giving a more natural, comfortable sound to voices and music.
When a bilaterally hearing impaired person wears a hearing aid in only one ear, the unaided ear tends to lose its ability to hear and understand speech faster. This may become permanent if not corrected in time.
As nature intended, hearing with both ears allows you to enjoy a more normal social life.
Sudden loud sounds lose much of their jarring effect when perceived with both ears.
