Your hearing serves many purposes such as keeping you safe, locating where sound is coming from, and helping you follow conversations.
Your brain takes in a wide variety of cues from your ears, and automatically and effortlessly identifies the sounds and locates where they are coming from.
Imagine you are about to step into traffic. It’s the ability of the brain to utilise information from the auditory system concerning the direction and distance of sounds that lets you know whether or not it is safe to proceed. Therefore, it is crucial that you can hear all the sounds around you from both ears to understand where a sound is coming from. In noisy environments both ears work together to improve speech understanding by proving access to the important details in the listening environment. The more detailed the information your brain receives the easier it is to identify and follow what is being said.
