Digital Hearing Aids

Digital hearing aids have been commercially available since the mid-1990s and they are wonders of modern technology. Digital hearing aids can process sound using incredibly fast speeds. Digital signal processing can maximize the speech information you want to hear, while minimizing the amplification of sounds you do not want to hear.

Digital technology is tremendous and it allows the audiologist flexibility to adjust the hearing aid to improve the sound quality and loudness of the hearing aid. Importantly, digital technology allows the audiologist to tailor or customize the sound of your hearing aids to what you need and want to hear.

Advancements in digital technology have now incorporated wireless (Bluetooth) communication between the hearing aids and electronic devices such as cell phones, T.V., computers, iPods, and other devices. In addition to wireless technology, hearing aids can work as a binaural pair allowing for better localization, improved sound quality, and better performance in background noise.
