Exciting New Advancements in Hearing Aid Technology

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Choosing a hearing aid can sometimes be challenging, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Each type of device offers a different solution to each individual’s unique hearing needs. If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by the choices available, we can promise you that you’re not alone. At Hearing Sense, we offer support to help choose the right hearing aid for you and your needs. No question ever goes unanswered, and we pride ourselves on providing the best quality devices available. We consider our jobs half done if a client leaves our clinic without a smile on their face, and we are always excited when we can share new ways to improve a client’s quality of life. Hearing loss often segregates its victim from enjoying a normal life. With new hearing aid technology, those worries fly out the window, and clients can regain their confidence and independence. Hearing aids no longer have the same stigma attached as they did 20 or 30 years ago. Nor are they simply an aid to help you hear better, they are now more of a lifestyle aid.

Imagine telling your children or grandchildren that you have a device that’s almost as advanced as their smartphone? Just like any other type of technology, hearing aids have changed drastically in the past decade. From artificial intelligence to smartphone compatibility, hearing aids are changing to keep up with the demands of their users. For those users who want or need a more comprehensive range of features in their devices, there are many options and technology levels to select from. Devices don’t just offer improved hearing; they’re now equipped to well and truly improve quality of life.

In recent years, we have seen an increase in demand for more advanced hearing aids with a broader range of functions. One manufacturer who is well and truly at the top of their game when it comes to technological advancements is Starkey. Starkey has listened to their consumers and designed devices that give their user both peace of mind and make their lives a whole bunch easier.

The Starkey Livio AI is a hearing aid that launched a revolution and was awarded a spot in TIME Magazine’s 100 best inventions of 2019. With the recent release of Livio AI Edge, Starkey devices are considered some of the best on the market. The new features of the Livio AI Edge help users regain independence. These devices can adapt the users hearing experience depending on what environment they are emerged in. With a simple tap, the technology assesses the situation and modifies the settings completely hands-free. Settings can also be changed through a helpful app. So, if you’re heading to the shops for your weekly groceries, your settings can adapt to lower your volume if you want to shop in peace. If you’re attending a family gathering, your devices can adjust to help hear the conversations happening around you—no more straining to listen to the person talking from across the table or bar. With Edge Mode, you can optimise hearing voices in an instant. Discretely tap your ear twice, and muffled voices are converted into clear discussions.

In recent weeks Kelly, Senior Audiologist saw Hearing Sense’s first client try his new Livio AI Edge aids, and this is what she had to say. 

“I was just blown away by the technology and the whole experience. Both my client and I were so excited. The aids looked so funky, and the sound quality was excellent. One of the best parts was his face when I turned on the aids – like the sun coming out from behind a cloud.

We set up this impressive feature where you pat your ear twice, and the aid goes into Edge Mode. The device does an immediate environment analysis and works cleverly to optimise hearing voices in that instant.

We always offer a free months trial and like to catch up halfway through to check progress. I can’t wait to hear how the client has gone and, see how well everything has worked!”

With advanced technology options like the Livio AI Edge, you can enjoy conversations even in busy settings by suppressing background noise. No buzzing, no whistling, just comfortable feedback-free hearing assistance all day. The aids are fully customisable to fit a unique ear canal and come in a range of colours which means the devices can be as visible or as discrete as a client chooses.

If you’re looking for a truly extraordinary hearing experience, we recommend booking in at one of our clinics today to discuss your hearing aid options. At Hearing Sense, we are incredibly passionate about finding the right solution for you, and we offer a trial on all devices, so you can see if the hearing aids are perfect for your life.
