Hearing aids have come a long way in the last few years. Here are a few of the new features that are available:
Hearing aids continue to shrink in size and comfort is improving.
Some hearing aids have built-in blue tooth capabilities. These can connect directly to phones and streaming services.
Some hearing aids have volume and other controls that can be managed through a phone app. In some cases, these apps give a read-out of the remaining battery life.
Rechargeable batteries are an option in some models.
The range of price points is wider than ever before.
Over-the-counter hearing aids are now available for those with mild to moderate hearing loss.
Technology for reducing background noises and for adapting to positional changes is improving.
Losing your hearing can be a lonely and devastating challenge, yet many people who need hearing aids either don’t get them or never wear them. Whether it’s been a while since you’ve shopped for hearing aids or you’re just starting out, take a look at the options. It’s important to choose what you can afford. It’s also important to choose hearing aids that you’ll actually want to wear.
