Hearing Instruments

The hearing Instrument industry has made significant advancements in correcting hearing loss, including the cosmetic impact of hearing aids, rechargeable options, and technology. Many people feel apprehensive when they recognize they have hearing loss. They don’t want to wear a hearing instrument. They feel uncomfortable with the knowledge that others will know they have trouble hearing. However, hearing instruments have changed considerably in the last few years due to consumer demands and technological advances. The hearing aid industry recognized this change, and responded with hearing instruments that do not look like traditional hearing instruments. In fact, many are so tiny; others will never recognize you are wearing one. Further, the experience of wearing hearing instruments has improved greatly through better technology and research. This new generation of hearing instruments can stream music, television and phone conversion seamlessly using Bluetooth technology. Many manufacturers have rechargeable hearing instruments that do not require the purchase of batteries. You simply plug the hearing instrument into the charging case at night and the internal battery is charged for up to 24 hours of wear time.
