Time To Upgrade
Hearing aid technology is rapidly advancing. If your hearing aids are more than a few years old, it may be time to consider an upgrade. Today’s products offer a unique and personalized experience to suit your lifestyle.
Today’s hearing aids are smaller and more feature-packed than their predecessors, offering an array of options. Current hearing aid algorithms are designed to detect and amplify speech while reducing annoying background noise. This will enhance speech understanding, especially in difficult listening circumstances.
Many devices have the ability to determine your environment and automatically adapt hearing aid settings for an easier and more comfortable listening experience. For example, in an outdoor setting, wind noise reduction will help eliminate the muffled sound of wind amplified through a microphone.
Hearing Aid Options
With so many choices and features available, making a decision about which hearing aid is right for you may seem overwhelming. Shannon will recommend the appropriate make and model to suit your hearing loss.
You can make phone calls, listen to music and watch television with direct audio streaming to your hearing aids.
Rechargeable Hearing Aids
Traditionally, hearing aid batteries require replacement every one to two weeks. Many of today’s products offer rechargeable options, essentially eliminating the need for regular battery changes.
The benefits of rechargeable batteries are plentiful:
- You don’t need to worry about having extra batteries on hand.
- You will save time and money by not having to purchase disposable batteries.
- Your charger will serve as your devices’ overnight home for safe and dry storage.
