Why should you wear two hearing aids and not just one?

Well you have 2 ears for a very good reason. You will be able to hear much better when you can hear properly on both ears.
We prefer to use both of our eyes - the same goes for our ears
Wearing one hearing aid would be the same as wearing eyeglasses with only one lens in it. 

When wearing one aid you do not allow the ears to work together with the brain to sort out the sounds.
What are the benefits of wearing 2 aids?
As the old saying goes, 2 heads are better than one and we could keep going with 2 hands, 2 legs, 2 eyes, 2 ears are better than 1, etc., etc.

But what are the actual advantages?

More Natural
The hearing becomes much more natural with sounds coming from all around you. 

Being able to identify where the sound is coming from is only possible with 2 aids. Eg. which direction is a car or bus coming from when you are out and about in the street. 

It is twice as easy to understand the words when others are speaking. 

It enables you to participate in conversations when there is noise around you. 

Lazy ear
The unaided ear tends to lose its ability to hear and understand over time. Both ears needs to be kept active. 

Hearing is less tiring and listening more pleasant. 

Wider hearing range
A voice that’s barely heard at 3 meters with one ear can be heard up to 12 meters with two ears. 

More comfortable
Listening to loud sounds
