Modern digital hearing aids don’t just make everything louder. If you are considering getting a hearing aid, understanding how they work may help you a great deal.
There are many myths about hearing aids, including that they make all sounds louder. This simply isn’t the case with modern, digital hearing aids. Today’s hearing aids are programmed specifically to amplify the sounds that you need to be louder.
Digital hearing aids pick up sounds with a microphone that are then amplified and sent to a receiver that sends the signal into your ear. The technology inside digital hearing aids is able to classify sounds as speech that you want to hear or noisy clutter in the background that you don’t want to hear. This technology allows users to hear better in even challenging environments.
The sophisticated digital technology also allows your hearing aids to be adjusted to fit your needs as your hearing loss changes.
