Selecting hearing aids is an important process, matched only by the quest to find the right eyeglass prescription. Choose hearing aids wisely, and you will by privy to the cacophony of life: dogs barking, children laughing, birds singing and the voices of your loved ones. Choose not to take the quest seriously and you may be left with sub-par hearing aids that barely make a difference.
There are hearing aids that can be implanted surgically, but these are for more serious degrees of hearing loss- if your doctor thinks these are the best hearing aids for you, she/ he will let you know.
In-the-nano hearing aids have no tubes to detach and clean, you should clean the aid with a dry soft cloth or tissue. Do not use any liquid on the hearing aid as it may damage it, only use the cloth.
The Phonak Sovia uses the latest and greatest in digital hearing aid technology, with automatic sound adjusting. Like a camera focuses to pick up an image clearer, a digital hearing aid focuses on a particular sound and zooms in on it so you can hear it clearer. It analyses extraneous noises and screens out background noises, letting you focus on speech and important sounds. It also has a very low feedback rate.
Hearing aid technology is constantly improving, and new products are being introduced all the time. To understand what your loved one needs, you first must know how a hearing aid works.
But these aids are a lot less expensive than the other choices that are on the market. The design is simple and they are not as big as they once use to be. The outer shell is built to last and will have a tube that will be connected into the ear. Plus you have the ear mold that is the part that will help hold the aid to the ear.
If you find a style but the amplification or fit is not to your liking, you still have many options. Try another manufacturer with a different fit system, try a digital (or analog) device, again you are only risking the shipping and handling fee. You are in your own home, you have plenty of time and you’re protected by your credit card company. There is no better way to learn about hearing devices.
As much as you’d like to have your normal hearing back, that’s just not possible when using a mechanical device. Be wary of companies and salespeople that claim your device will completely eliminate background noise or restore your ear’s normal capacity.
