What’s the difference between analog and digital hearing aids? Analog hearing aids basically take sounds and make them louder, just as cupping your hand behind your ear amplifies sound. Some analog hearing aids include a programmable microchip, but the functions are relatively basic. Digital hearing aids take in sound waves (in themselves, analog signals, for the tech folks out there), translate them into digital format, process, filter, distort, amplify and ultimately deliver a sound signal into your ear canal that is custom-tailored to your needs. In order to perform all these wonders, digital hearing aids contain a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) chip. To better understand digital versus analog, consider the difference between analog vinyl records and digital CDs. Vinyl records require fairly simple methods for playback, and a simple turntable and needle will do the trick. CDs take a little more hardware, as the digital information has to be processed and reproduced. While there is a greater amount to do, CDs provide clearer, high fidelity sound. Some people prefer the warm crackle of a vinyl record, but that fuzz simply won’t do when it comes to your hearing!
Behind the ear A behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid hooks over the top of your ear and rests behind the ear. A tube connects the hearing aid to a custom earpiece called an earmold that fits in your ear canal. This type is appropriate for people of all ages and those with almost any type of hearing loss. Behind-the-ear hearing aid: Traditionally has been the largest type of hearing aid, though some newer mini designs are streamlined and barely visible Is capable of more amplification than are other styles May pick up more wind noise than other style

Signia Siemens Hearing Aids - Signia Siemens is focused on technology that can be clinically proven by independent studies to be a true benefit to patients. Two independent clinical studies prove that Siemens Signia technology is better than normal hearing in demanding listening environments (University of Northern Colorado, 2014 and Oldenburg Horzentrum Research institute in Oldenburg, Germany, 2013). Signia and Siemens Primax features significantly reduced listening effort, which has benefits in the short-term and in the long-term. Speech recognition performance for those with hearing loss were equal to normal-hearing individuals (University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, USA HARL, University of Western Ontario NCA, London Ontario, Canada and NAL, Sydney, Australia). Siemens have been engineering hearing instruments for over 147 years. Signia Siemens is the preferred premier treatment for hearing loss. Signia Siemens won two prestigious Innovation Awards for the Cellion Primax hearing aid and the Signia Siemens myHearing app at the CES 2017. Over the years more of our patients have preferred Signia Siemens technology, quality and reliability over other major brands.
Perhaps you've thought about getting a hearing aid, but you're worried about how it will look or whether it will really help. It may help ease your concerns to know more about: *The hearing aid options available to you *What to look for when buying a hearing aid *How to get used to it Hearing aids can't restore normal hearing. They can improve your hearing by amplifying soft sounds, helping you hear sounds that you've had trouble hearing.
Open-fit hearing aid is a variation of the behind-the-ear hearing aid with a thin tube. This style keeps the ear canal very open, allowing for low-frequency sounds to enter the ear naturally and for high-frequency sounds to be amplified through the hearing aid. This makes the style a good choice for people with mild to moderate hearing loss. An open-fit hearing aid: Is less visible Doesn't plug the ear like the small in-the-canal hearing aids do, making your own voice sound better to you May be more difficult to handle and adjust due to small part
BTE Cross System Cross systems are used for people with hearing loss in one ear or significantly more in one ear, this system allows the user to wear technically a microphone in one ear and the speech is transferred into a speaker in the good ear, whilst the cone in the good ear allow normal hearing
Learning More About Hearing Loss To understand hearing health and hearing loss, you should first understand how your ear works to capture sound and transmit it to your brain. The outer ear is designed to capture sounds and funnel them into the ear canal. The sounds enter your ear canal, where they cause vibrations in your eardrum. The eardrum has the job of transferring the sound waves from your outer ear to your inner ear. As the sound passes through the inner ear, it vibrates tiny hair cells that represent individual frequencies or pitches. If you think about the inner ear as a piano, some hairs represent the highest notes on the piano, and some represent the lowest. As the various hairs vibrate, it triggers transmission of those frequencies to your brain for interpretation of what sound you have heard. Your ability to hear clearly can be impacted by certain medical conditions, genetics, accidents, prolonged exposure to loud noises, or even aging.
Working in loud environments can also hamper hearing, and the older we get the more likely we are to have hearing problems
