Digital Hearing Aid Features And Technology Levels

The digital revolution has made a huge impact on the way hearing aids look, feel and work. They can be so small that they are virtually invisible, so "cool" looking that you will want everyone to see them, and so natural sounding they mimic the way you used to hear before you experienced hearing loss.

Below are just a few features that are now common in hearing aids.

  • Dual microphones allow you to hear better in noisy situations, and some can even identify the source of the noise and reduce it!
  • Open technology that keeps the ear canal unobstructed eliminates that "talking in a barrel" effect.
  • Feedback cancellation does just that... It cancels feedback BEFORE you hear it as an annoying whistle.
  • Hands-free technology automatically adjusts to your listening environment... whether you are on the phone, in a crowd or in wind.
  • Your digital hearing aid can now be programmed with a computer to meet your individualized needs.
  • Wireless technology allows you to hear your cell phone, television and home phone in stereo, directly through your hearing aids!

You can choose from the most discrete of hearing aids, like those above, or you can choose less concealed models, such as "All in the ear" style, "Canal" style, or "In the Canal" style or "Receiver in the Canal" style.

Hearing aids come in many styles, as you can see here:
