Back To Perfect Hearing With The Help Of Digital Hearing Aids .

October 9, 2008 by admin 

It is amazing what the Digital Age has done for Hearing aids.. In the past, hearing aids of the old analogue system provided the user with feedback, whistling and problems with volume. Thankfully, these are all problems of the past. Today’s digital hearing aids provide clearer sound and do so through the transformation of sound into numbers or digits, when  combined with computer chips, it is easy to make use of mathematical formulae to produce sounds that are controlled to give the hearer perfect output.

They Are So Called “Smart Devices”

What is a Smart Device? Your digital hearing aid can digitally process sound which allows them to distinguish between noise and voices. Thus it is now possible to program them to amplify the voice part only and at the same time dampen the noise part of the sounds processed. This is the reason why digital hearing aids produce an extremely clear voice, even when there is loud background noise, this is far superior to what analog hearing aids where capable of.

With the analogue hearing aids you were forced to turn down the volume whenever feedback or whistling occurred making it difficult to hear. Today, digital hearing aids have eradicated this problem.  In addition, digital hearing aids can also be made so that they monitor all sounds that enter and exit the hearing aid, and establish whether or not such sounds are feedback, if this is the case, the digital hearing aid immediately cancel such feedback.

Naturally, as with most other things, the better the features on the hearing aid  the higher the price. However even the cheaper range of digital hearing aids will manage sound very efficiently, while the more high-end ones give users the ability to hear very faint noises and without any feedback, some units may include directional microphones that help in getting rid of surrounding sounds.

Unfortunately, digital hearing aids are not a one size fits all product, therefore, it is important that you consult with your specialist to determine exactly what your problem is and be guided as to what form of digital hearing aid is best suited to you. The inner contours of your ear must be taken into account insuring a comfortable fit.

Obviously, the final cost of your digital hearing aid will depend on your hearing condition and the features of the unit you want included, but be assured digital hearing aids are brilliant and the service you receive from them will amaze you.
