Types of Hearing Aids
Today’s digital hearing aids are typically offered in various technology levels, such as Basic, Entry, Advanced, or Premium. Basic aids generally require the wearer to make some manual adjustments in certain listening environments, such as turning the volume control up or down, or pushing a button to change a listening program. In contrast, a Premium, or more advanced, hearing aid responds automatically to changes in the listener’s environment, making changes based on the signals being detected by the hearing aid. As the level of technology increases in the hearing aid, so does the availability of advanced features.
