Are Your Hearing Devices “Smart?”

November 25, 2019

Wherever we are, our technology has gotten “smart,” from the smartphones in our pockets, to our smart TVs and smart meters. But what does it mean for a device to be “smart?” Smart devices can communicate each other, either via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or another wireless connection.

Even our hearing aids are getting smarter! Modern hearing aids can actually “learn” what we like and adjust the settings automatically, which makes our lives easier. Our hearing experiences also become more seamless and natural feeling. And since smart hearing aids can also connect wirelessly with other smart devices like your phone, your TV and other electronic media in public places, it’s becoming almost better to have hearing aids than perfect natural hearing!

They Learn Your Preferences!

Your smart hearing aids take note of every manual adjustment you make. Part of being “smart” is the ability to learn how to optimize your hearing in every environment, then auto-adjust the next time you are in that situation. This optimizes your hearing experience, making it more natural and seamless the longer you use them.

They Have Automatic Adjustment!

Whenever you need to manually adjust something with your hearing aids, it is now so much easier! You can “automatically manually” adjust them remotely via your smartphone app. Unlike in the past when you may have had to remove your hearing aids and look at them to make adjustments, the same process is now as easy and inconspicuous checking the weather on our phone.

They Adapt to Your Environment!

Everywhere you go is different: your house may be calm and quiet first thing in the morning, and you may next go to a moderately noisy work environment or a group meeting with a lot of background conversation. Modern hearing aids collect data from every environment you typically surround yourself with.  The next time you are in that environment your hearing aids can automatically modify the settings suit that environment. You no longer need to worry about manually tweaking your hearing aids while en route to another location! These smart hearing devices have your back!

They Connect Wirelessly!

 Smart hearing aids can also wirelessly connect to each other, so you don’t have to worry about discreetly covering up the wire between your devices. Also, the signal can reach both hearing aids at the same time, so the ears both hear more precisely, and your brain can process incoming sounds more naturally and effectively.

They are Social AND Smart!

 Smart hearing aids can actually do things people without hearing aids can’t do! They can stream TVs content, radio and music directly from your phone to your ears! The volume can be adjusted without a remote. You can even answer a phone call without touching your phone! Many people buy separate wireless headsets to do this, but with your smart hearing aids you don’t have to! Discreet volume control is also possible via phone apps, which makes life easier for you!

No More Background Noise Worries!

 Smart hearing aids have automatic noise cancellation, so you don’t have to worry about background noise like extraneous conversation in public places or wind when you’re outside. This helps your brain to hone in on the sounds that are necessary, instead of amplifying every sound around you.

Smart hearing aids are a “smart” investment, because they help to make your daily life easier, wherever you are.

Come on in and see the latest hearing technology options, and you can evaluate the value these newer devices could provide for your quality of life.
