The world no longer has to be muffled- your hearing no longer has to diminish as you age. In the age of smart technology, your hearing can be as clear as a newborn baby’s, allowing white noise to be filtered out and the crisp words of your friends, family, and favorite television show to be heard loud and clear. With microscopic hearing aids, and now smart hearing aids, hearing problems are a thing of the past.
What are Smart Hearing Aids?
Smart hearing aids are the new wave of technology for the hard of hearing. Much like a smart phone, they can be synced to your personal technology as well as to you, personally, to assist with hearing everything you want and need to hear and nothing you don’t. Smart hearing aids can be controlled by an app on either your Android phone or iPhone and adjusts as needed, depending on your surroundings. They can also be set completely automatic without your own intervention or control.
Benefits of Smart Hearing Aids
Many hearing aids require manual adjustment based on your activities and location. For instance, in a restaurant, different settings may be required than when home watching television. Unfortunately, with manual adjustments comes human error, wherein the wearer may forget to make the appropriate adjustments at the appropriate time, leaving the hearing aid less effective, or worse, causing the sound to be less natural and optimal. Smart hearing aid takes the human error out of the equation.
A smart hearing aid is paired with your phone and the app you install on your phone. Then it is programed for your specifications based on your hearing evaluation results. It cannot be transferred to another person and the room for error is so small, it is almost non-existent. Then the magic occurs. As you go about your daily living, your hearing aids automatically adjust accordingly. If you are on the phone with your lovely grandchildren, the settings will adjust so you can hear every word or babble. Then, if you are out to lunch with some friends, your hearing aids will again adjust so you do not hear everyone else’s conversation. Then, when out at the pool, they will adjust yet again. Also, when you are playing golf or jogging, or simply doing yard work, you will not be bothered by the wind noise. You do not even have to think about it. The hearing aid takes over and does the thinking for you, so you can just enjoy your life and those in it.
One other benefit to the smart hearing aid is its relatively small size. Smart hearing aids fit snug and cozy in and around your ear so no one has to know you are wearing it, except for you and those you choose to tell. They feel quite natural and are very lightweight to allow comfort as well. They even have different colors to match your hair or your skin!
