With the huge choice of options when it comes to hearing aids these days, choosing the right one for your needs may seem overwhelming. Whether you value power, features or a discreet form factor, we’re sure to find a hearing aid that best suits you.
But in order to find the right hearing aids for you, we need to first assess your hearing. This helps us to determine exactly which features would suit you best. We're ready to help you use the latest technology to get you back to living your life the way you want.
Special Hearing Aid Features
There is a wealth of cutting-edge technology in every hearing aid that we offer, but here are some of the hearing aid technologies we’re most excited about:
Wireless Bluetooth technology
Through the power of Bluetooth technology, hearing aids now have the ability to connect to your phone, TV, music players, and a host of other devices. Bluetooth hearing aids are now able to direct these audio signals to your hearing aid, enabling you to stream content from any Bluetooth-enabled device straight to your ear. Many hearing aids even allow you to stream phone calls to your ear, too!
There are three types of Bluetooth enabled hearing aid:
- ‘Made for iPhone’ hearing aids have the ability to pair directly with your Apple device.
- ‘Made for any phone’ hearing aids can connect directly to all smartphones.
- You can use a compatible hearing aid accessory that connects to your devices and streams the sound directly to your hearing aids.
Lithium-ion rechargeable technology
Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries have long been the favored technology in many major industries, and now this innovation is finally available for hearing aids.
Compared with traditional battery technology, lithium-ion batteries deliver enough power to stream hours of content and still have enough to get through the rest of the day. The batteries themselves last up to five years and can be charged conveniently overnight making them a very attractive choice for any hearing aid wearer.
Many of our hearing devices come with special programming features including:
- noise management programs
- automatic adjustments
- ear to ear communication
- function controls
- directional microphones
- music programs
