Hearing aids FAQ

What does "Programmable" mean?

Today's technology has allowed hearing instrument engineers to develop a microchip that, along with the circuit itself, allows the instrument to be digitally programmed with up to three different "situation" setting or "memories."

Unlike traditional non-programmable instruments, they offer the user a wide range of adjustments. Your hearing health professional will fine-tune the instruments according to your specific needs. The instruments will then automatically adjust to changes in your environment.

Unlike other hearing aid instrument models that basically amplify sounds, this new sound processing technology, with more control options and flexibility, allows your hearing health professional to obtain a higher degree of precision in fitting your individual loss.

Now, he or she can target the exact amount of amplification you require better than ever before.

How do I program it?

These advanced technology instruments are digitally programmed ONLY by your hearing health Professional. NO programming is required on your part.

Programmable are truly revolutionary circuits with more functions and control features than were previously available. You, today's sophisticated customer, can now enjoy this versatility. (Hearing aids bc)

Soft sounds can be heard, average sounds are comfortable, and loud sounds are loud, but not uncomfortable. It automatically adjusts to make the listening environment a more secure, welcoming place for those with a hearing loss.

How digital signal processing technology works. A computer chip in the instrument analyzes incoming sound waves and converts them into digital signal (1's and 0's).

The digitized numbers are modified according to algorithm instructions in an effort to reduce background noise while amplifying the sound patterns of speech. The signal is then reconverted to sound waves and high fidelity sound.
