Digital Hearing Aid Technology

Digital technology has made a huge impact on the way hearing aids look, feel and work. They can be so small making them virtually invisible, and so natural sounding, they mimic closely the way you used to hear before you experienced hearing loss.

Digital Hearing Aid Technology Features:

Dual microphones allow you to hear better in noisy situations. Some can even identify the source of the noise and reduce it! It allows the listener to focus more on the person who is in front of them while being less bothered by other noises surrounding them.

Open technology helps to keep the ear canal unobstructed while eliminating that "talking in a barrel" effect. This technology is often referred to as “open fit” hearing aids, receiver-in-the-ear hearing aids (RITE) or receiver-in-the-canal (RIC) hearing aids.

Feedback cancellation does just that... It cancels feedback BEFORE you hear it as an annoying whistle.

Automatic technology adjusts to your listening environment... whether you are on the phone, in a crowd or in wind. Most hearing aids allow the patient to have a manual button to override the automatic functions when the patient requires more control.

A digital hearing aid is 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!
