Digital Hearing Device:

The ability to communicate is played important role in every aspect of life.Older technology and now changes in hearing; adjusted to individual needs in a way older analog hearing instruments never could. What is different about today’s digital hearing aids? They’re smarter, smaller, more effective and easier to use than their predecessors.Today, microchips, computerization, and digitized sound processing are used in hearing aid design.

The digital hearing device offers great technology, especially when compared to the hearing aids your grandma used to wear. No longer will you find bulky, awkward devices with a high-pitched squeal. Depending on the type, some of the most advanced digital hearing aids are so discreet that people may not even realize you’re wearing them. In a Digital Hearing Aid have some advanced features along with Analog Hearing Aid features.

In a Digital Hearing Aid have some propelled includes alongside Analog Hearing Aid highlights. Be that as it may, Digital amplifier has the most recent innovation which changes over sound waves into computerized signals which break down whether the sound is commotion or discourse and give a twisting free flag.

Some Advanced Features f Digital Hearing Aid:

Gain (volume) Processing:

For a long time, listening devices have possessed the capacity to naturally increase or decrease volume according to the input sounds.This innovation minimizes the need to physically adjust the volume control. More recently, the hearing device to leave sound into different frequency regions called channels. The sound of each channel can be adjusted independently, allowing for certain sounds to be amplified more than others, similar to an equalizer on a stereo. The amount of amplification in each channel can usually be set by your hearing aid specialist  using the hearing aid programming software

Wireless and Bluetooth Connectivity

  • This technology uses a Bluetooth or wireless streaming device  to receive sound from Bluetooth transmitters and send the sound to the hearing device
  • Wireless devices are also available to flow other audio signals directly to the hearing device, like the audio signal from a television or MP3 player.

Digital Noise Reduction:

  • Digital noise reduction schemes are being used in most hearing aids currently marketed
  • digital noise reduction (DNR) schemes are intended to reduce hearing aid output in the presence of noise
  • the hearing care business has been challenged to develop schemes and algorithms that provide some assistance from those unwanted sounds to hearing-impaired hearing aid users

Digital Feedback Reduction:

  • Acoustic feedback in the hearing device is the high-pitched hissing sound that you may have heard from some older hearing aids.
  • It is a result of the increased sound dripping out the ear canal and being picked up by the microphone of the hearing aid
  • feedback is now much less common because the most digital hearing device has a feedback manager that reduces feedback.
  • The possibility of feedback also depends on the configuration and severity of the hearing impairment

Self Learning:

Hearing aids with this feature can remember your volume and program preferences in specific listening environments it works just like self-learning program. We can train the hearing device with a push button or with the help of remote control.  For example, if the volume of the hearing device is reduced every evening by using the volume control, eventually, the hearing aids will automatically turn on at a lower volume setting.
