What are some advantages of getting a newer hearing aid model?

If you have been using a hearing aid for a while, you know that hearing devices work using three simple components- a microphone, amplifier, and speaker. The microphone picks up the sounds around you, and the amplifier adds power to the sounds and sends them to the speaker, which permits you to hear. But while hearing devices may work on the same principle, they produce a different sound experience—and it can be challenging to know which one is optimal for you.

Why opt for newer hearing aids?

Upgraded hearing aids can give you better:

  • Connectivity. As hearing aid technology progresses, patients are getting more options to interact with their electronic devices. Many devices can now connect wirelessly to cell phones, televisions, and stereo systems via Bluetooth technology. Paradise Audéo has an all-new speech enhancer and motion sensor; the Paradise Audéo delivers an unrivalled hearing experience.
  • Background noise. Many patients with hearing loss find it difficult to hear in situations with high background noise levels. Many newer devices offer directional microphones to home in on the sounds you want to hear and offer one-touch remote controls to adjust in noisy situations easily. A good option for easy control is the Widex Moment™ also features exclusive Sound Class technology that automatically adapts your hearing aid to specific listening requirements. You are ensured optimal clarity, comfort, and audibility in different situations.
  • Speech sounds. Some hearing aids prioritise speech sounds and conversational understanding above all else. Upgraded hearing aids make it easy to hear multiple speakers in a discussion, even if one is in front of you and the other is behind. Signia Pure 312X incorporates a game-changing acoustic-motion sensor technology, allowing the hearing aids to tailor your needs based on your environment. ReSound Enzo Quattro has the latest super-powered hearing aid that gives you 60% better speech clarity! By detecting your environment, the Enzo Q automatically adjusts itself to provide you with the right sound balance even in noisy environments.
  • Comfort. If your hearing aid has a history of falling off your ear or delivering spotty sound due to a poor fit, you should know that many new designs can improve wearer comfort. In-the-canal models are fitted using custom earmolds, preventing whistling or feedback from a loose-fitting device. One example is Vitro Titanium, super discreet and titanium, custom-made to fit your ears perfectly.
  • Discretion. In the past, patients with profound hearing loss would be forced to rely on heavier, more noticeable hearing aids necessary to deliver higher amplification. Today, patients with advanced hearing conditions can enjoy a clear sound in devices that fit entirely within the ear canal, like when using Insio Charge and Go AX - revolutionary rechargeable hearing aids customised to fit.

While new hearing aids may come with high-tech qualities, the essential thing to weigh when choosing a new hearing aid is whether it helps your hearing concerns. You should consult your problems openly with an audiologist and let them recommend a device specificallyy based on your needs. If you speak on the phone regularly, a device with wireless features would be ideal—while people who enjoy outdoor sports may feel satisfied with wind-resistant models.
