One of the most common questions we receive is on which level of technology our clients need depending on their level of hearing loss.
Here are some quick tips for researching each type of technology:
If you’re new to hearing aids, the basic-level technology may suit you fine. The truth is, even the most basic hearing aid technology delivers remarkable hearing – especially in quiet environments. Hearing aids with this technology offer varying numbers of channels (the more channels, the greater programming flexibility). At this level, you’ll most likely have to manually control the volume and different listening programs, but you’ll still be hearing better.
Do you lead an active life? Perhaps you find yourself in noisy situations struggling to hear. Or maybe you just love listening to music. If so, the advanced-level technology may be right for you. Hearing aids with this technology offer more customizations, including automatic adjustments for best listening in several unique listening environments. You’ll get more channels in the hearing aids for greater programming flexibility. Overall, this level can really optimize your ability to hear conversations in noise or crowds.
If you want the ultimate listening experience in every situation, the premium-level technology is the way to go. Hearing aids with this technology are designed for the most challenging listening situations. You get automatic performance in seven unique listening environments with no manual adjustments needed. It comes with sophisticated speech-enhancement technology that allows you to focus on conversations from any direction. With this technology level, your hearing loss will no longer get in the way of living life to the fullest.
