Out-dated notions about hearing aids may be stopping some people from addressing hearing loss. At Sandia Hearing Center, we can help you learn about the latest in hearing aid technology.

In the past several years, hearing aid technology has gone through a radical transformation. Today’s hearing aids are state-of-the-art, highly effective, sleek, and sophisticated wearable electronics that can help people stay actively engaged on the job and in life. They are digital, wireless, can connect directly to smartphones and other electronic devices, and can be as discreet or as visible as the user likes.

Today’s hearing aids are all about active lifestyles—they’re ageless.

Below are five little-known facts about hearing aids that everyone should know. Although each hearing aid model offers different features, those listed below are on the market and are available through Sandia Hearing Center in Colorado Springs, CO.

  1. They’re virtually invisible. Many of today’s hearing aids sit discreetly and comfortably inside the ear canal, providing both natural sound quality, and discreet and easy use.
  2. They automatically adjust to all kinds of soundscapes. Whether you want audibility on a conference call, the ability to hear the audio prompt on machinery or a computer, or ease in discerning conversation at a client luncheon, recent technological advances have made hearing aids far more versatile than ever before—and in a broad range of sound environments.
  3. Water, sweat, and dust are no problem while wearing them. Waterproof, digital hearing aids have arrived. This new feature is built into some newly designed hearing aids for those concerned about water, humidity, and dust. This feature suits people who work in demanding environments, as well as those with active lifestyles—like swimmers, skiers, and sports enthusiasts.
  4. They love smartphones, computers, and other prized electronics. Wireless, digital hearing aids are now the norm. That means seamless connectivity—from smartphones, MP3 players, computers, FM systems, televisions, and other beloved high-tech gadgets—directly into the hearing aid(s) at volumes just right for the user.
  5. They’re always at the ready. A new rechargeable feature on some newly designed hearing aids allows users to recharge their hearing aids every night, so they’re ready, ramped up, and waiting in the morning. There’s no more fumbling with small batteries. Just place the hearing aids into the charger at night, and in the morning, they’re ready to go.
