Five facts about hearing technology:

  1. Hearing aids in the past have been made so big and bulky that it was often too embarrassing for the person who was suffering from hearing loss to wear them. This was often even more embarrassing for younger people, however today hearing aids are almost invisible, they fit right into the ear and no one can actually see them. Hearing aids have evolved to providing the client with three types of hearing aids; behind-the-ear, receive-in-canal, and in-the-ear.
  • Hearing aids have been created to be moisture-resistant and some professionals call these devices ‘waterproof’. The client can even swim with a waterproof hearing aid but must wear a specialized ear mould in order to block the water from entering the tube that connects the dome inside the ear canal.
  • Hearing aid technology can also be connected wirelessly via Bluetooth to other devices such as cell phones, and computers. This allows the person to listen to music, turn the hearing aids volume up or down and even watch TV.
  • Listening in 360 provides the person to direct the sound waves, no matter how far or close the sound is. The Phonak hearing aids also enables one to zoom in or out of the sound too. Making the sound more intense or less intense based on the wearer’s preference.
  • If the client is in a busy and noisy area such as a city centre or even at a party, the hearing aid allows you to block out the noise. Providing the person with a constant comfortable environment.
