The Value of Hearing Health
A wide range of technology, and a whole host of features, are available in each hearing aid style. The cost of hearing aids generally depends on
the technology and the number of features the instrument has, and not necessarily on the style selected.
Today's digital hearing aids are typically offered in various levels such as basic or entry-level to advanced or premium-level. Within each level,
different technology and features are available.
Basic digital hearing aids generally require the wearer to make some manual adjustments in certain listening environments such as turning a
volume control up or down, or pushing a button to change listening programs. In contrast, a premium or more advanced hearing aid responds
automatically to changes in the listener's environment, making changes based on the signals being detected by the hearing aid. The hearing aid
wearer is not required to make any manual changes.
As the level of the technology increases in hearing aids, so do the availability of advanced features. Examples of some of the advanced features
found in today's digital hearing aids are shown below.
Applies preference to sounds in front of the wearer and reduced sound from behind
the wearer. This technology has been proven in studies to improve speech
understanding in background noise.
Determines if signal contains unwanted background noise and reduced level of
background niose if present. Background noise is less annoying and hearing aid
wearer's listening comfort is improved in noisy situations.
Reduces or eliminates whistling that can often occur with hearing aid use. Hearing
aid wearer's comfort is improved from annoying whistling.
Wind Noise Reduction
Reduces the noise created from wind blowing across the hearing aid's microphone(s). Designed to improve comfort for persons who spend a lot
of time outdoors.
The ability of the hearing aid to track and learn the hearing aid wearer's preferences in various listening environments. This information can assist
the hearing professional in making future programming adjustments and allows the hearing aid to adapt to the wearer's preferences.
This feature picks up a signal from a compatible telephone and hearing aid wearers can listen to the telephone without whistling. Some hearing
aids may require a push of a button to activate, other manufacturers offer an auto-telecoil where the hearing aid switches automatically when a
telephone signal is detected.
