Digital hearing aids are the latest in technology and have a small computer inside them. This computer will process the sound.. Having a small computer in them allows your audiologist to customise the aid to suit your hearing loss perfectly! A digital hearing device can also be cleverly programmed with preset settings. These presets are for different sound environments, for example a quiet room, an auditorium or a busy shop. If you require it, these presets can often be turned on or off using a small remote control (for example a special watch) so that the mode can be changed very discretely. The benefits of digital devices can be:

  • customized to suit your hearing;
  • clearer listening in different environments;
  • your hearing aid is less likely to give feedback (ie whistle);
  • some can identify noise and reduce the amplification required (providing more comfortable usage)
