Smart Hearing Aids

Hearing aids have come a long way and today’s models are packed full of advanced features that make wearing them a breeze!

Wireless Connectivity: Bluetooth Hearing Aids, Smartphone Apps, and More

Hearing aids have come a very long way in terms of design and usability. Smart hearing aids are the most popular and effective treatment option for any type of hearing loss because they offer automatic functionality. This allows users to interact with their environment naturally while the device’s algorithms enhance desired sound in real time. With smart hearing aids, you can easily synchronize all your devices (whether it be a smartphone, tablet or even your smart tv!) and navigate between audio sources with ease without sacrificing discretion or audio quality. Plus, hearing aid design has become sleeker and more modern, so you don’t have to worry about dealing with clunky models. You can move forward with your life and hear better than ever before!

Smartphone Apps Offer Customized Hearing Experience

Part of what makes this wireless connectivity so incredible is the ease of use that comes along with your advanced hearing aid. In most cases, you can install an app onto your smartphone that allows you to adjust the volume or change the settings of your hearing aid. You can create a customized hearing experience depending on the environment you’re in, all with the discreet and simple action of touching the screen of your phone.

Wireless Capabilities with Bluetooth

Wireless features also work to improve your hearing ability and the ease in which you can communicate with others. Many hearing aids can link to your phone via Bluetooth technology to provide clear and crisp conversations. By streaming directly to your aids, you remove the possibility of feedback or asking people to repeat themselves. Other audio activities like enjoying podcasts, audiobooks, listening to music, and more can also stream directly to your devices, allowing you to enjoy your favorite hobbies once again.

Today’s hearing aids use the latest in digital technology. Hearing aids work by amplifying sound through a three-part system with four simple components: a microphone, a speaker or receiver, an amplifier and a power supply (batteries). First, the microphone receives sound and converts it to a digital signal. The amplifier then increases the strength of the digital signal. Finally, the speaker projects the amplified sound into the ear.

How Do Hearing Aids Help Me Hear?

The goal of hearing aids is to help those with hearing loss better understand speech. When combined with expert speechreading skills (reading lips, taking in facial expressions, body language, and other contextual signs), these visual cues help people with hearing loss gain excellent understanding of speech.

There’s a variety of types of hearing aids that can help with different types of hearing loss or background noise concerns. No matter which type you select, each hearing aid consists of the four simple components.

Hearing aid accessories and devices can help bridge the gap between you and the sound source. Hearing aids work by eliminating the effects of distance, noise, and reverberation, bypassing challenging acoustics—sending sound directly to your ears.

Do Hearing Aids Just Make Sound Louder?

Although the primary function of a hearing aid is to make sound louder, it is not the only one. Hearing aids do many things to assist those with hearing loss. Hearing aids measure the amount of amplification needed based on the volume level and quality of the sound. They ensure that all sounds are clear including whispers, your phone or the TV volume. Hearing aids also can filter background noises, making it easier to hear the intended sound.

What Hearings Aids Work Best?

There is a variety of types of hearing aids including completely-in-the-canal, in-the-canal, full shell in-the-ear, behind-the-ear and receiver-in-the-canal. There are many hearing aids designed for different functionality including those with easy user support, best high-end design, best for artificial intelligence features, best for group and classroom conversations and more. There are even options for waterproof hearing aids.

Each type of hearing aid can help with different levels of hearing loss as well as meet the needs of your lifestyle. Schedule an appointment with our team of hearing specialists to help determine which type of hearing aid best fits your needs.
