Hearing Aid Technology
Hearing aids have advanced immensely in recent years. Hearing aids are now digital, and many are even considered to be “smart.” Smart hearing aids include features such as Bluetooth connectivity, rechargeability, automatic functioning, and even artificial intelligence. With today’s hearing aids you can connect to many of your favorite smart devices. With Bluetooth hearing aids you can connect to your smartphone to stream phone calls, music, and other audio directly to your hearing aids. Rechargeable hearing aids are also popular among many patients. Instead of having to worry about changing batteries every week, you can just place your hearing aids on their charging station, and they will fully charge overnight. Adaptability in hearing aids is another incredible feature that has advanced in the technology in recent years. Hearing aids are fully automatic, so they can adjust automatically to the sounds in your environment. If you are at a noisy restaurant with your family, your hearing aids will accommodate you by filtering our background noise and focusing your hearing on the conversation with the people around you. Hearing aid’s ability to recognize speech in noise is highly advanced and will allow you to hear better in any environment.
It’s Time to Get More Out of Life
The Oticon MoreTM is a new perspective in hearing care. This hearing aid is designed to work more like the brain does because it learned through experience. Using On-board Deep Neural Network (DNN) the Oticon More TM gives the brain more of the information it needs to make sense of sounds, even in the most complex listening environments.
