Hearing Aid Features
There are many different types of hearing aids that are available on the market, with advanced technology to improve the lives of those with a hearing impairment. Advanced Audiology is Santa Clarita’s expert on hearing solutions, with a wealth of knowledge about the top aids in the industry. As technology levels increase, hearing aids become more automatic and have better features to help you communicate in difficult listening situations. Here are some newer features that have revolutionized hearing aids, and improved the quality of living for those who cannot hear well.
Bluetooth Compatibility is a wireless feature that will connect hearing aids to mobile phones and other Bluetooth devices. It uses components like telecoil and FM compatibility to improve the signal to noise ratio and eliminate feedback from the microphone. Another feature is wind noise reduction, which allows people who enjoy outdoor hobbies to avoid and reduce the amplification noise of wind blowing.
Many hearing aids now have smart features that allow them to learn your preferences. It will log your volume control settings and program preferences for certain sound environments, and in time they can make automatic changes when particular environments are detected. Many of these aids will also have Binarural processing, meaning they will communicate wirelessly with each other to process information coming from both ears, allowing them to operate synchronously. In addition, some of these hearing aids can log data so that you have valuable hearing information to provide to your doctor during checkups.
While these are common features found in modern hearing aids, there are some innovative brands that have unique features that make them stand out.
