Time To Upgrade
Hearing aid technology is rapidly advancing. If your hearing aids are more than a few years old, it may be time to consider an upgrade. Today’s products offer a unique and personalized experience to suit your lifestyle.
Today’s hearing aids are smaller and more feature-packed than their predecessors, offering an array of options. Current hearing aid algorithms are designed to detect and amplify speech while reducing annoying background noise. This will enhance speech understanding, especially in difficult listening circumstances.
Many devices have the ability to determine your environment and automatically adapt hearing aid settings for an easier and more comfortable listening experience. For example, in an outdoor setting, wind noise reduction will help eliminate the muffled sound of wind amplified through a microphone.
Bluetooth and Wireless Technology
Bluetooth technology® allows devices to communicate with one another.
Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids let users stream signals from these and other electronic devices directly to their aids, improving their versatility and convenience.
You can make phone calls, listen to music and watch television with direct audio streaming to your hearing aids.
Rechargeable Hearing Aids
Traditionally, hearing aid batteries required replacement every one to two weeks. Many of today’s products offer rechargeable options, essentially eliminating the need for regular battery changes.
Many rechargeable batteries can provide up to 24 hours of hearing from a single charge.
The benefits of rechargeable batteries are plentiful:
