Ear and eye health is intricately linked with our brain health. There is ample evidence that taking care of hearing and vision, helps us to keep our brain healthy.
The hearing technology has improved tremendously in last 2-3 years. Modern hearing instruments have embraced the latest advances in electronics like never before.
Today’s hearing devices provide much better speech understanding in noisy environment than any time before. They do not whistle and look ‘sexy’.
Most hearing devices have rechargeable batteries that last up to 25 hours, super-fast computer chips to process the sounds at unprecedented speed, and improved microphones and speakers to give perfect sound to the ears. And that’s all without any effort from the wearer. It is all set from the computer by a qualified audiologist. Technology is your slave, not the master. It works for you intuitively.
For the users who want this facility, contemporary hearing devices seamlessly connect with Apple and Android phones and tablets to stream music and calls. Wearers can use special smartphone applications to control various features of the hearing instruments and stream music directly like a Bluetooth headset. They can remember the adjustments you make at a particular location e.g. your favourite restaurant or golf course, and automatically change the settings as soon as you are there. You can find the instruments via your smartphone GPS tracking system.
And much more….
So, don’t get put off by what you know, have seen, or experienced with the hearing technology of the past. Embrace the future. It is easy, convenient, and effective.
Wish you all a great better hearing journey!
