Hearing Aid Technology

Remember your grandparents’ big, beige hearing aid that you could hear whistle and buzz when you’d give them a hug? Hearing aids have come a long way since those early models, and the new technology is making it easier for people with hearing challenges to enjoy the sounds of life.

Digital hearing aids are miniscule compared to their ancestors of 20 years ago, and they can do so much more. Today’s listening devices contain microcomputers that filter out background noise, clarify sound and adjust volume. They’re also programmed to exactly match nuances of an individual’s hearing loss.

Some of the latest hearing aid models incorporate everyday conveniences, like the ability to directly interface with the television to enhance your hearing and viewing experience.

As hearing aid technology advances, the features and capabilities become more and more sophisticated and customizable. Learn about all your options from your Audiologist.
