New Accessories for Hearing Aids
In the old days, accessories for hearing aids usually meant headbands, ear tips, and neck loops. Perhaps the most advanced hearing aid accessories were the microphones. Nowadays, the microphones have become even more advanced than ever before, and now there are numerous wireless technology accessories which can really help you cope better with your hearing loss.
These new accessories for hearing aids include:
With directional microphones, you can then focus solely on the sounds coming right in front of you. These mikes reduce the pickup of sounds coming from behind you. This means you can converse better with people simply by making sure that you face them directly. Background noises will then disrupt your conversations less.
Some of these remote control devices are very discreet and look just like a cellphone which you can place in your pocket. Others look like a pen so people don’t realize you are making adjustments to your hearing aid. There are even some devices which enable you to use your actual smartphone into your remote controller through the use of an app.
Essentially, you bypass all the extraneous noise you hear, and your hearing aid mikes simply transmit the signals sent out by this accessory. Since it connects to the other devices through Bluetooth, there are no cumbersome wires to worry about. You can just focus on a single device, which means you can use your smartphone or TV much more effectively. The sounds you hear will be so much clearer.
Remember, these hearing aids accessories should be discussed first with your audiologist. If you get permission, get these accessories right away. It can make your life much easier.
