Hearing Aids - the Digital RevolutionWritten by Audio Help Hearing Centers
Every year, the industry breaks new ground in hearing aid technology. 2013 is shaping up to be one of the best yet. Digital hearing aids have been around since the 1980s, but they weren’t very effective or popular until more recently.
Developments this year have the latest and greatest digital technology. Some are designed to be water resistant or even waterproof (to a certain depth), and some are able to play music through a wireless connection to a computer, cell phone or a personal audio device. Aside from these specific functions, most hearing aids are sleek and powerful with clean, crisp reception. It’s only been in the last five to ten years that digital hearing aids have become so superior to their analog cousins.
