Technological advances continue at a pace, improving and transforming lives in so many ways, and that is certainly the case when it comes to intelligent hearing aids.

What are intelligent hearing aids?

Intelligent or smart hearing aids have evolved utilising Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help people adapt to hearing challenges and make hearing better and easier.

You don’t have to be tech-savvy to appreciate the difference they can make. Here are five key benefits that intelligent hearing aids provide:

1. You can connect your hearing aid to your mobile phone
If you struggle with phone conversations because you can never hear the other person, mobile phone connectivity means you can now take the call directly from your hearing aid.

2. You can control your hearing aids from your mobile device, making adjusting to new environments easier than ever
No longer will a change in environment overwhelm you with new sounds, you can discreetly adjust the settings on your hearing aid from your mobile phone, and nobody will be any the wiser.

3. You can reduce background noise in loud environments to focus directly on the person you’re speaking with
Dull the whirl of passers-by or background music by simply turning it down.

4. You can say goodbye to loud TV volume by having sound directed straight to your hearing aids
You are able to connect your hearing aids to some televisions, meaning that you can reduce the volume and make it more comfortable for others by having the sound directed into your hearing aid.

5. All this technology can fit inside hearing aids that are smaller than ever
Intelligent hearing aids allow the brain to work in the most natural way possible which makes for a better experience.

 

There are other features too. Some AI-powered hearing aids offer fitness tracking and fall detection features – sending an automated message to someone when you have a fall.

Your Hearing Aid Audiologist can explain all the benefits of these premium devices and whether their advanced features would suit you. Buying a hearing aid is a big decision and the choice can feel daunting. Our professional and friendly staff can help you make the right choice by taking your needs, lifestyle and budget into account.
