All custom shell made and behind-the-ear hearing aids today are digital.
Why is it important to wear hearing aids sooner than later?
Why are two hearing aids better than one?
The digital hearing aids that are available currently are sophisticated and multi-functional in terms of offering clear, rich sound experiences combined with modern technology which allows us to control our hearing aids via a remote-control app on a smartphone. The remote-control app allows the hearing aid user to adjust and control volume and frequencies, select programs for defined listening situations as well as creating preferred settings for specific listening situations. The Bluetooth capabilities of these hearing aids allow for hands-free calls, streaming music from a phone directly to hearing aids, listen to podcasts and stream TV straight to the hearing aids. A significant development in modern digital aids allows for real-time remote video support. The Audiologist can adjust and optimize hearing aids settings directly in the fitting software. This feature is particularly relevant and convenient in the current COVID situation.
