Tinnitus is defined as the perception of a sound when there isn't an external sound present. Tinnitus is commonly described as a ringing, buzzing, or roaring sound. Hearing aids with tinnitus therapy work to enhance speech and ambient sounds while also distracting the brain's focus on tinnitus sounds. This allows you to leave tinnitus behind and get back to doing the things you love.
For those with an active lifestyle or live in a humid environment, internal components of hearing devices require protection from the elements, such as dust and moisture. Water resistant hearing aids can be subjected to low levels of moisture, such as humidity and sweat.
Custom fit hearing aids allow for the ultimate factor of comfort and personalized fitting of hearing aids. An impression of the outer ear and ear canal is taken in order to create devices that fit seamlessly with the wearer's ears. Some hearing aid wearers are unable to use certain custom fit hearing aids due to their ear canals being too small, so it's important to talk to your hearing healthcare professional and determine what can work for you.
Hearing aids that connect directly to your smartphone allow you to control many facets of your hearing aids, such as volume levels, as well as deliver audio from your TV, phone calls, and music directly through the hearing aids. The smartphone direct designation represents devices that can connect directly to an iPhone without the use of intermediary device.
In the past, hearing aids were large, bulky and uncomfortable. As enhanced features were developed and implemented, attention became focused on the look and feel of the devices. Therefore, sleek hearing aids emerged. These devices are smaller and more stylish, but still include sophisticated technology and features.
