Hearing Aid Technology
Hearing aids and hearing aid technology has improved hugely the years.
Today’s technology offers more natural hearing, greater control and connectivity, higher efficiency, increased comfort and more discreet aids than ever before.
Hearing aids can now connect seamlessly via Bluetooth with equipment such as your TV, landline, mobile phone, stereo and other wireless devices, transforming your hearing technology into the world’s smallest hands-free kit. Most also connect to an app on your smartphone or tablet giving you ultimate control.
Technology has also come a long way in helping to reduce background noise, even in noisy and difficult environments such as the car, restaurants and outdoors in windy conditions. All this allows you to focus your hearing better, so that you can relax, be yourself and enjoy your social life again.
The colour options have also moved on from ‘hearing aid beige’ and we can colour code them to your hair or skin tones. For the more gregarious person there are some fantastic colours and patterns available to make your hearing technology a fashion statement and something to show off (much like your glasses!)
