Anyone with substantial hearing loss knows that it can lead to a considerable decrease in quality of life, especially while in the presence of others. Hearing is a critical part of participating in public activities. Luckily, hearing aids can help people to live a normal life even with hearing loss.
Technology You Don’t Notice
The hearing aid technology of today offers the most seamless hearing experience ever. Even if your hearing loss is severe, hearing aids can help you to communicate and understand the world around you normally. The newest wireless technology allows users to control all of the settings via smart phone or other device, acting as a kind of remote control. Hearing devices are now smaller than ever–so discreet that people you encounter may not know you are wearing them!
The functional technology of modern hearing aids like feedback cancellation, background noise reduction and speech recognition can make the use of hearing devices easier than ever. Hearing aids are now “smart” and can learn your needs and automatically adjust to your preferences.
In addition to their basic functions of restoring your hearing, today’s hearing aids can also allow you to stream sound from telephones, TVs and other devices—like having earbuds available whenever you wear them. Without any additional devices you can listen to TV, movies or music wirelessly.
New Capability for New Technology
In the past, hearing aids were merely amplifiers of sound, doing nothing to assist the brain in processing sound. We now realize that hearing loss is much more than not hearing sounds—it can involve the inability of the brain to interpret the sound coming in. it therefore becomes necessary to find a way to assist that communication between the brain and the ears.
Hearing aids today are truly smart devices, complete with computer chips that can predict your hearing needs and provide a solution. They have learning capabilities, for example, that can help you control background noise and volume—almost as well as your natural ears!
