Hearing aids have certainly come a long way in recent years and continue to develop steadily alongside other technological breakthroughs.
From the aesthetic aspect, the receiver-in-the-ear style has proven to be a great and inconspicuous solution that can fit a wide range of people with hearing loss. The style that fits completely in the ear canal is another virtually invisible option. When selecting the style appropriate for each patient, the main considerations are the degree of hearing loss and the patient’s dexterity.
In addition to being discreet, hearing aids have become water-resistant and some are even entirely waterproof. Sweat and humidity are far less worrisome now. The drag of battery replacement is gone, too. Many models come with an option that allows patients to charge their hearing aids overnight, right next to their phone. Most hearing aids have an option to be adjusted using an app on your smart phone and direct phone-to-hearing aid streaming is becoming a standard.
Call your audiologist or hearing specialist and schedule an appointment for yourself or a loved one for a hearing evaluation and a hearing aid consultation. It is important to find a practice that partners with virtually every manufacturer of hearing aids in the world for a hearing solution that will fit your specific hearing and lifestyle needs.
