Five surprising things you may not know about hearing aids

Posted by

Did you know?

  1. Hearing aids are advanced medical devices that enable you to hear in quiet and in more difficult hearing environments

    Hearing aid technology has come a long way from the big, bulky devices of the past. Most hearing aids are now extremely cosmetic and nearly invisible when worn. Many hearing aid users can now wear hearing aids that are open in the ear canal eliminating the head in the barrel effect when the ear is plugged. These open fittings allow for more natural sound quality.

  2. Connectivity and accessibility have improved dramatically

    Hearing aids allow direct wireless streaming from mobile devices, televisions and small microphones that can be worn by a companion.

    Both iPhone and Android users can stream music or calls directly to their hearing aids. In addition to wireless streaming from the phone, this streaming is also available from the TV and companion microphones. Companion microphones, when worn in a noisy environment, provide the benefit of allowing for hearing of the companion’s voice in even the most difficult environments.

  3. HEARING SAVERS
  4. No more batteries

    The tedious chore of changing small hearing aid batteries is a thing of the past. Now you can have hearing aids with rechargeable batteries and portable chargers, a great benefit to those with vision or dexterity limitations.

    Recharging at home is simple with most hearing aids. An overnight charge is all they typically need to be ready again in the morning without any risk of losing a charge throughout the day. Some chargers can both hold a charge for portable charging and can charge very fast providing 8 hours of use time after only 30 minutes in the charger.

  5. Smartphone apps discreetly manage device functions, such as checking battery status and adjusting volume to using more advanced fine-tuning features that control speech focus, noise and wind filters. Some apps even offer a find my hearing aid feature.

  6. Remote customer care is now available

    Working with a professional Audiologist is essential in treating hearing loss and maximising the benefits of your hearing aids, but it doesn’t mean you have to spend time trekking back and forth to the Audiologist’s office.

    Smart apps enable users to connect directly with hearing care professionals remotely. After submitting a request, your hearing aid programming can be adjusted via your phone without an office visit.
