For driving and car lovers

If you like traveling by car to new destinations or if driving is your prefered method of transportation, Amplifon offers some of the most advanced hearing devices with innovative noise reduction technology, such as Car mode, that senses when you're traveling at speeds above 10mph and automatically adjusts your hearing aids to adapt to the sounds of driving. The best hearing aids for driving are the ones that provide a clearer speech signal and help reduce ambient noise in relation to speech. This makes it easier to hear others in the car.

Understanding conversations in large groups

Conversations can sometimes be difficult to follow, especially when it comes to large groups. Thanks to one of the most fundamental noise reduction features, directional microphones, Amplifon hearing aids can help improve your ability to hear in environments with a lot of background noise.

Watching TV lovers

Watching television is a great leisure activity for most people, whether they are a fan of news programs, political segments, or entertainment shows. So, if you love watching but have a hearing impairment, Amplifon's TV streamer feature transmits television audio directly to your hearing aids, without any intermediate devices. This is especially useful for those who need to listen to TV at a higher volume than other family members or for those who watch TV in bed and do not want to disturb others.

Music lovers on the smartphone

Amplifon offers several Made-for-iPhone hearing aids, the most suitable for you in case you have iOS devices; for Android devices you need to check the hearing aid's compatibility with Android ASHA (Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids), usually found on devices with Bluetooth 5.0+ and Android 10 (or higher).

What are the best hearing aids for active lifestyles?

Hearing aids offer significant benefits for people with hearing loss, especially for those who lead an active lifestyle and are exposed to more risks. 

The choice of a hearing aid for sports lovers is often synonymous with comfort, reliability and durability

Comfort, size, and fit

If you lead an active lifestyle, you may prefer a compact and inconspicuous hearing aid to ensure comfort and freedom of movement during physical activities. In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids offer a suitable solution due to their small size and snug fit within the ear canal. This type of hearing device is a perfect fit for those who enjoy running or activities that require helmets or face masks as they have a more secure hold and are less likely to fall out.

Alternatively, behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids can also be practical, especially when equipped with sweat-resistant covers for added durability and a secure fit.

Water resistance

If you engage in outdoor activities or water sports, it is essential to choose a hearing aid that is water-resistant or waterproof. Many modern hearing aids are described as "water-resistant", able to withstand some exposure to moisture. It is essential to follow the manufacturer's instructions for care and use. For more intensive water activities, it is preferable to opt for a "waterproof" hearing aid.

Connectivity

If you track your sports performance or are a fan of smartphones or other electronic devices, you should look for a hearing aid that integrates seamlessly with these technologies. Many modern hearing aids are equipped with Bluetooth capabilities, which allow direct audio streaming from your phone or other devices to your hearing aids. In this way, you can seamlessly access hearing assistance, music and various audio content during exercise or other activities.

Battery life

Battery life is important for people who lead active lifestyles and thus avoid unpleasant incidents. 

The technology behind hearing aids is always evolving and many modern hearing aids now offer longer battery life. however, it is advisable to look at the manufacturer's specifications and explore rechargeable hearing aid alternatives.
