3 Modern Hearing Aid Features to Consider

If you are looking for new hearing aids, there are many options to consider. The function of your hearing aids is an essential factor when making the decision, but so is style and comfort. You should consider three modern features that all hearing aid users think of when buying their next set of devices:

Remote Controls

Remote controls allow you to adjust your device from a distance. For example, you can control the volume, change programs, or turn off and on your hearing aid without having to touch it. Nowadays, many devices have wireless and wired options for remote controls, depending on what works best for you. 

You can control some hearing aids with your cell phone or tablet. You could also consider pairing your remote with an app. The “Hear” app is one example of how you can use technology to control your hearing aid from any distance.

Wireless And Bluetooth Connectivity

The wireless connectivity will allow you to connect your hearing aids directly to a Bluetooth-compatible device, such as a smartphone. It will enable the user complete control over their devices while not being limited by wires. It is beneficial because if you have a phone call, you can take all your calls on speakerphone, just like on a landline.

You can make calls on speakerphones, and you’ll still be able to hear the other person because your hearing aids will pick up their voice through the microphone. The wireless connectivity also means that you don’t have to get up every time something happens in another room – like if someone knocks at the door or a phone call.

You can control your hearing aids with a smartphone, which is very convenient. For example, with an app for iPhone or Android smartphones, you’ll be able to adjust the volume that way if it’s too loud in certain places like at work or on public transportation. 

You’ll also be able to choose from different types of programs and settings depending on what you’re doing. It makes it easy to switch between various programs depending on your surroundings. You don’t have to worry about battery life either because these devices are rechargeable, reducing the number of times you need to change batteries over time.

With Bluetooth connectivity, users can take phone calls directly through their hearing aids via a compatible smartphone. It is convenient because it allows users to take calls on speakerphones just like they would with a landline phone, and the hearing aids will still pick up the other person’s voice through the microphone.

Self-Learning

Self-learning, vertical or horizontal directional microphones are two famous examples of self-learning features. They allow the hearing aid to adjust its settings based on what sounds it hears in your environment. If you prefer specific frequencies over others, this is an excellent feature for customizing sound. For example, it helps filter out background noise while amplifying clear voices that you want to hear.

The more you wear your hearing aids, the more information it gathers about how they are working for you. It means that over time, the technology will continue to improve as well!

Hearing aids have come a long way since the bulky, uncomfortable devices of the past. They now offer high-quality sound and convenience features that can help you to enjoy your day with ease.
