Types Of Hearing Aids
The latest technology focuses on digital hearing aids devices and the old analogue ones are fast becoming a thing of the past. Digital devices have a lot of benefits that makes it a far better solution.
Firstly, it offers a superior sound quality and the problems of noise that analogue devices have is pretty much eliminated digitally. Since digital hearing aids are controlled by a microchip it can be programmed to suit your exact hearing levels which makes it extremely effective.
There are essentially 4 styles of ear hearing aids on the market. Each one is slightly different in the way it works and the style that best suits you depends on your own unique situation.
The behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid is still the most inexpensive but its also the biggest and gets fitted over the ear. Inside-the-ear (ITE) aids are those that sit just inside the ear while in-the-canal (ITC) devices sits mostly inside the ear canal and is virtually invisible with just a small part sticking out.
The most advanced devices are the completely-in-the-ear-canal (CIC) hearing aids that are positioned deeper inside the ear canal and completely invisible.
Hearing aid technology is constantly evolving and becoming increasingly advanced. Modern hearing aids are small high-tech computers. Hearing aids are constantly being refined and developed to provide better reproduction of natural human hearing.
The progress allows for increasing numbers of sophisticated features to be built into the hearing aids and providing improved sound reproduction. The ability to adapt the hearing aids to individual demands with respect to your daily environment and type of hearing loss is constantly improving.
The most advanced modern digital hearing aids are constantly analysing the sounds of your environment and changing between built-in programmes, automatically selecting the appropriate programming mode for the specific situation.
The entire sound reproduction is constantly adapted by the hearing aids to provide you with the best possible hearing.
