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 specifically 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.

I started experiencing loss of hearing sometimes in 2010 (41 years old) owing to some medical issue. I was having difficulties hearing conservation especially in meeting. Thus, giving me the fear in attending meeting.

Initially I started with Phonak hearing aid. It helps amplified the sound and I could hear better then. Somehow, my hearing loss deteriorated further that in late 2012 (43 years old), there was profound loss of hearing on my right ear. Even digital hearing aid could not help. On my left ear there is still about 50% to 60% hearing with hearing aid. I was lost at this point of time. I was considering learning sign language. I went to see my ENT specialist and my audiologist Mr. Bala advised me to go for an CI as an alternative to my hearing loss.

I also thank God for Engineer and Scientist, giving them the knowledge to create such a complex and sophisticate device to help those with hearing loss like me. It will be all perfect if the cost is affordable too.

Also her after service is superb so I highly recommend.

My mum, Madam Kek (73 year old) had the Cochlear implant (CI) done on her left side in 10th September 2019. Thereafter, thanks to the subsequent auditory verbal therapy, evaluation from SGH ENT team, as well as, the support from AB's and Listening Lab staffs; Madam Kek was able to hear, comprehend sound and music from her Cochlear implant, Naida CI Q90, and hearing aid (HA), Naida Link UP, for her right side before end year. We are happy that both the CI and HA have improved mum qualify of life. Now Madam Kek is looking forward to work again to pass her time as she can hear and better communicate with others.

Titus was implanted when he was 18 months old. He is a happy, talkative 6.5 years old now. AB has been with him for 5 wonderful hearing years and we are looking forward to a bright future that lies ahead for him. AB’s Naída CI sound processors are reliable and the technology is constantly evolving and upgrading. When Titus was introduced to Naida Link CROS, his life was enriched. The wireless network established between his Naida CI sound processor and a Naida Link CROS transmitter allows him to hear from both ears. This changes Titus’s life and the way we interact with him. We are also very pleased with the prompt response and service provided to us. The staff in AB genuinely cares! We want to thank AB for making Titus’s hearing journey an enjoyable and a relatively stress free one!

I have been living with progressive hearing loss for more than three decades. Socially, I find myself fearful of communicating with people and at home, watching 'soundless' television programs is a norm.

An unforgettable experience. Trying on a pair of Resound GN hearing aid, I was energized and revitalized and overwhelmed with emotional tears of joy. The Resound GN is truly remarkable and uniquely equipped with three-friendly-user environmental modes that provide hearing comfort wherever we are.

In particular, I like to extend my utmost gratitude to Hearing Consultant. With her profound compassion and wisdom in guiding me, I am confident that I can forge a formidable partnership with the Listening Lab; So that I can rebuild a new chapter of a happy and value-creative life and simultaneously, leaving behind the painful memories of the past three decades.
