From audiograms to tinnitus, find all the terms commonly used for hearing loss and hearing aid technology listed below:
Made-For-Smartphone hearing aids allow you to control the amplification settings of your hearing aid, based on the sounds in your environment, from your smart device.
The app associated with your hearing aid can also store those settings so that you can easily switch between environments such as work, home and your favourite restaurant, for example, without having to readjust the settings each time.
Furthermore, some hearing aids feature technology that can even learn your preferred settings and switch between programs automatically as you change environments.
Many public settings, such as theatres, stadiums and public transport stations, are equipped with induction loop systems. In these systems, microphones transmit sound to a permanently installed induction loop wire (usually located in the ceiling or under the carpet), thus generating a current and creating an electromagnetic signal.
When used on a specific setting, hearing aids can pick up this signal directly and wearers can adjust the volume as desired. The effect is the same as having a sound transmitted directly to your ears with your hearing aid.
