When deciding about hearing aids we help you decide what technology and size works best for you. Below is a brief overview of these topics.
Innovations in electronics and hearing aid design have created a revolution in hearing aid function. These improvements continue to make hearing aids more user friendly and allow them to offer more real-world benefits to improve your hearing clarity.
Analog hearing aids were the standard until the late 1990s. These circuits use electrical signals to produce sound but are quite outdated and offer only limited adjustment.
Digital hearing aids take the signal from the microphone and convert it into “bits” of data – (“0s” and “1s”) – numbers that can be manipulated by a tiny computer in the hearing aid. This bits are manipulated by algorithms (a set of instructions) to perform precise, complex actions to improve clarity. This process happens very rapidly, usually several million calculations per second, to manipulate sound in almost any way imaginable. These complex calculations offer many variations of background noise management and reduction to create very precise, very flexible hearing aids.
These manipulations are simply not available with analog circuits.
Hearing Aid Styles – How They Look
There are many styles of hearing aids. Your selection of the most appropriate device for your needs depends on several factors such as (1) your degree of the hearing loss, (2) features necessary to meet your individual needs, (3) your manual dexterity, (4) cost factors, and (5) cosmetic concerns. The most common styles are listed below:
During your visit, you should be given a hearing test in a soundproof booth. It will tell the audiologist or hearing specialist what type of hearing loss you have so a hearing aid can be programmed specifically for you. Not all devices will fit every person or every degree of hearing loss. And "these are custom-made devices". "It's not prudent to buy online or from a big-box retail store."
So Test Your hearing loss, and try the hearing aids which is programmed for you..
