Hearing aids: Much more technical than you think!

Hearing aids are a cutting-edge technology. They now offer a range of features and can be chosen to fit your lifestyle.

Here are some examples of what they have to offer:

Rechargeable hearing aids: Environmentally friendly and practical

New rechargeable hearing technology means you won’t have to worry about your battery running out of power anymore! After just a three-hour charge, the new devices with lithium-ion batteries will last 24 hours.

Besides no longer having to worry about bringing spare batteries with you everywhere, you can rest easier knowing your hearing aids will work the whole day and won’t die at the wrong moment.

This solution is as environmentally friendly as it is practical!


Integrated Bluetooth®: Connected right to your ear!

Since the pandemic started, family gatherings have transformed into virtual conversations. Bluetooth® technology can help you understand these conversations better because it connects your hearing aids directly to electronic devices like your cell phone or tablet.

With clearer sound delivery from these devices, you’ll be able to follow family discussions easily, from the comfort of your living room.


Hearing-environment recognition: Automatically adapts to improve sound quality

Hearing aid design is constantly improving so wearers get clearer sound without interference. Hearing aids can now recognize your environment and make automatic adaptations that boost comprehensibility and reduce listening effort.

Regular, everyday discussions will be much more pleasant thanks to this development!


Movement detection: Microphones point toward the speaker

Another innovation in hearing aids that helps users understand speech is a movement detector. This technology senses movement and signals the directional microphones to point toward the origin of speech while the wearer is moving.

For example, if you are walking and talking with a friend, the hearing aids will recognize that you are moving and will turn the microphones in the direction of the person speaking beside you, while also filtering out unnecessary sounds.

Whether the other speaker is in front of you, beside you or even behind you, you will be able to hear them and detect where background noise is coming from.
