Are the New Hearing Aids
We are often asked if the new hearing aids are really better than the older hearing aid technology. The answer is Yes, however, there are still no hearing aids that restore an individual’s hearing to normal. The hearing aid manufacturers spend millions of dollars on research and development to make hearing aids smarter and faster. The speed of the processors has doubled in the last 2 years allowing the chips to be better at determining what needs to be amplified (ie: speech vs noise) and by how much as well as better detection of the direction of sound. Some hearing aids are capable of communicating with each other and many hearing aids have Bluetooth capabilities to allow wireless communication with Bluetooth cell phones or the TV. Progress is being made with the newer technology and people are finding benefit with some of these “smarter” hearing aids.
