Special Features in Hearing Aid Prescription
Hearing aids have come a long way ever since digital technology was incorporated into the device. Nowadays, your audiologist may be able to include some special features in your hearing aid prescription. You may no longer have to be content with just being able to engage in conversation.
Here are some new features in hearing aid prescriptionswhich may fit your particular circumstances.
Previously, people just amplified their phones and then placed the receiver into their hearing aids. But now, there are some hearing aids which can be adjusted so that phone conversations can be improved. There are even some hearing aids with a “telephone” setting so you can hear the words more clearly.
There are several ways and strategies which your audiologist can include in your hearing aid prescriptionso that you will be able to listen to music more effectively. This can be a lifesaver if you are a musician and you’re now experiencing some hearing loss.
But now there are also new types of hearing aids which already come with a pre-adjusted music setting. That means you can basically flip a switch and change from focusing on conversations to focusing on music.
However, if you are having some difficulties when you engage in conversation, then your hearing aid prescription may specify directional mike hearing aids. These things focus on sounds coming in front of you and reduce the sounds from behind you. This means you can just face the person you are talking to so that you can have a conversation, even if the rest of the room is noisy.
Your audiologist is there to help you get along with your hearing loss. With these features, perhaps you can get along much better than you used to.
