Noise reduction

Ideally, choose a hearing aid with noise reduction, as these help the user to adapt and hear better in noisy situations. These hearing aids reduce the volume of loud background noises, allowing the user to focus on hearing the most important sounds, such as a conversation.

Not all hearing aids have this function, and even if they do, they vary depending on the model, which reduces noise to a greater or lesser extent.

Noise in feedback

Sometimes, feedback in a hearing aid results in a loud and annoying sound. These can occur if the sound coming from the loudspeaker of the device enters the microphone of the hearing aid and amplifies it again. This, when it happens, is called feedback. Some time ago, patients wearing hearing aids had to put up with these noises. But now, with more modern models, they have been considerably improved.

Rechargeable hearing aids

Charging hearing aids at night makes them easier to maintain and it is also much more convenient not to have to replace batteries regularly, as some hearing aids today offer this advantage by having rechargeable batteries.

If the patient is looking for a hearing aid and is less mobile, we always recommend these hearing aids, as the benefit is immediate, avoiding the hassle of changing batteries.

Technology has advanced so much in the last decade that new types of hearing aids have come along to revolutionise the way hearing aids work. Instead of picking up sounds in the direction we are facing, they offer a 360° sound environment, helping to reduce the strain on the brain to listen, thus improving fatigue.
