What to consider when choosing a hearing aid

posted in: Home | 0

When you go to a restaurant with a large and diverse menu, it can be hard to choose. Because there are so many different functions and styles of hearing aids today, the “too many choices” effect can also happen when you’re selecting a hearing aid. With so many to choose from, make sure you’ve thought about what features and benefits are most important to you in a hearing device.

Many people put off getting hearing aids because they don’t want others to know they need them. This can drive patients to ask for the smallest, most invisible model. However, choosing based solely on appearance may not be the best way to improve your hearing. Above all else, the extent of your hearing loss must be assessed. After that, discuss your lifestyle, dexterity, and what qualities of life you most want to regain with your hearing aid professional.

Finally, test some different types of hearing aids and focus on sound quality. Don’t settle for tinny, muffled, or buzzing noises. Your hearing experience should be as natural as possible.

Surround Sound Concept Leads to Hearing Breakthrough

Many people are familiar with “surround sound” entertainment. It plays back recorded sound using enhancement techniques to create a virtual three-dimensional sound environment. The result is having the sense of being in the situation you’re watching on screen. Likewise, Surround Sound by ReSoundTM enhances and balances acoustic information in a way that makes the hearing experience more natural for people who wear hearing aids.

Making digital sound more, well, analog.

Sound is by nature analog, meaning that it is a continuous stream of vibrational energy. However, most hearing aids convert sound to digital signals. The breakthrough comes in how well this conversion is done. With Surround Sound by ReSound, incoming sound is modeled to replicate the way the natural ear processes sound. Then background and wind noise are removed. Next, low and high pitches, soft and loud sounds, and sounds coming from different directions are balanced. Finally, the signal is stabilized so people don’t have to worry about annoying feedback, even when they put a phone to their ear.
