The hearing aid industry is constantly evolving and improving every day! In the short 4 years I have been in this industry I have seen technology drastically change for the better! When I first started most hearing aids did not have the feature of being rechargeable, patients had to change batteries weekly and Bluetooth compatibility was just a mere hope for the future.
As a standard all manufacturers now have options for rechargeable or non-rechargeable in most styles. Giving patients the option to choose what is more convenient for them. If using a rechargeable hearing aid, you will never have to mess with small batteries again. All you’ll need to do is place the hearing aid in a charging case overnight and you will be set the next day with a full day worth of charge!
Having trouble hearing while on the phone? Do you want more control of your hearing aid? Never fear Bluetooth compatibility and apps are here! With most iPhone and Android cell phones you are able to connect your new hearing aids via Bluetooth and stream phone calls directly to your ears, you will never have to worry about placing the phone up to your ear again. You are also able to download a manufacturer specific remote-control app giving you the freedom of making minor adjustment from the comfort of your own home!
You may be thinking…. “All those extra features are great but I just want to hear clearer in background noise” The newest technology has you covered! Every year technological advances are helping patients hear more naturally and clearly even when you are in a noisy environment!
