Professionals have been pushing forward with better technology for the hearing industry. Their dedication to tinnitus treatment using sounds and signals has helped put hearing technology into a proactive position. When your health profile is in danger, there are plenty of ways to correct the condition.
Small treatments have been improved, and can now be handled on the same day visit. If you have earwax buildup, removing it doesn’t take a separate appointment. It’s a painless procedure and doesn’t take a huge chunk out of your day.
When a hearing aid is fitted for the first time, it includes personal settings based on your original test results. Although accurate on its own, the use of live speech mapping ensures that it is ‘real-world ready’. This is a big departure from traditional methods and allows a professional to see what you hear in real-time. The information used will allow the best adjustment possible for new hearing aids.
Hearing aids come in all shapes and sizes. There was a time where larger hearing aids had more power, were more reliable and came stacked with the most features. Technology has improved, and smaller hearing aids bridge the feature gap by using an app to manage advanced settings. The app isn’t mandatory but is a nice way to have extra settings without a bulkier hearing device. For Bluetooth enabled hearing aids, use of the app is essential in dealing with equalizer and media settings.
Now that you have a hearing aid with wireless functionality, what is the next step? If you can use a smartphone, then streaming sound with wireless hearing aids will be a breeze. Older Bluetooth enabled hearing aids depended on the host device to manage basic connect settings. Newer hearing aids rely on an app and gives more control to the user. This is an important setup if you use hearing aids with a smartphone, landline phone, sound system, car, laptop or any other media device. No matter how new the host machine is, chances are it will be compatible with the streaming audio portions of a hearing aid.
Invisible hearing aids seemed like a dream until the hearing industry made it possible. There are privacy concerns when wearing behind the ear devices. Invisible devices sit in your ear canal and are indistinguishable in normal everyday activities. You gain the power of hearing aid but maintain your privacy among friends, family and colleagues. Another added benefit is that there is no need to change the battery of invisible hearing aids. There is no need to purchase extra batteries, or to have a rechargeable stand in your home. How much you choose to reveal about your hearing health is always up to you.
There is never a wrong time to take care of your hearing health. Technology improvements in the industry prioritize health, but also take ease of use practices seriously. It is the best of both worlds and should be more than enough to bring your hearing back to normal.
