Hearing aids: then and now

Hearings aids have been around for over a century, with the first electronic devices introduced in the early 1900s. Since then, they have changed dramatically. A deeper understanding of the way our brains work, combined with innovations such as computers and microchips, have widened the possibilities. What does this mean for better hearing? Hearing aids and other accessories are now designed to suit different ears and different lifestyles, with a more natural sound and less background noise.

Explore some of the exciting innovations found in today's hearing aids.

Here are some to expect:

Wireless connectivity - It's never been easier to stream audio directly from selected smartphones. Wireless technology found in modern hearing aids gives you the freedom to listen to your favourite songs, stream TV shows or phone calls. 

Noise reduction - Sometimes, life can get noisy. Noise reduction technology helps to make uncomfortable sounds, like the clatter of silverware, less instrusive. When you're on the go and the weather picks up, wind noise reduction settings can also reduce discomfort. 

Speech focus - Being able to hear friends and family is important. When there's lots of background chatter, some newer hearing aids let you focus more on the person talking, allowing you to hear them more clearly. 

Location settings - When you're out and about, GPS data means your hearing aids will remember your favourite locations and adjust things like the volume and noise reduction for you. So, whether you're at work, the golf course or beach, you'll hear sounds in like the way you like them. 

Apps - Many hearing aid manufacturers also have their own app to give you even greater control. You can change volume or settings, check battery status, customise preferences, and even locate your hearing aids if they go missing. 

Revolutionary & rechargeable

The next big thing in hearing technology is rechargeability. These hearing aids come with a built-in rechargeable battery, giving you the freedom of a whole day of hearing. They can be charged quickly when needed, or overnight so you're always ready to go. Some ion batteries are sealed in the hearing aid, making them more resistant to moisture. Experience hassle free hearing and try our range of rechargeable hearing aids. 

Accessories that fit your life

The latest in hearing accessories make living with hearing aids even easier. If you are interested in any of these, speak to your audiologist to find the perfect choice for you.

TV streamer: Watch television in comfort with your family. You can stream audio wirelessly from the TV straight to your hearing aid via a TV Streamer. Best of all, you can change the volume independently of the TV’s speaker and listen at the perfect volume.

Remote microphone: Follow what’s being said, even in a crowded restaurant or business event with this tiny wireless device. It clips onto the speaker’s clothing and streams whatever they’re saying across the room and directly to you.
