Hear more of what you want, less of what you don't.
Digital hearing aids account for more than 95 percent of hearing aids on the market today. Unlike the analog aids of decades past, these aids do more than just make sound louder. Digital hearing aids process sound waves through computer technology, producing an exact duplication of each sound. As they do so, the sound is instantly analyzed and optimized for your specific needs and listening situation – for example, reducing the sound of wind or whistling. The result is an experience closer to natural hearing than ever before.
Advantages of Digital Hearing Aids
- Small size: Whether behind-the-ear or in-the-ear, digital hearing aids can be incredibly discreet.
- Self-adapting: Many digital hearing aids automatically change to optimal settings for different listening situations.

- Reprogrammable: Should your hearing worsen or change, your Hearing Care Professional can easily adjust the settings of your aids.
- Compatible with technology: There are a variety of options to sync digital hearing aids with other technologies. Stream television audio right to your hearing aids or control your hearing aid settings with a phone app.

Digital Hearing Aids vs. Analog Hearing Aids: Which is Right for You?
For most wearers, digital hearing aids are the logical choice. But analog hearing aids can still be a good choice for some users, especially long-time wearers. Available at a low price, analog aids also provide clear sound quality in quiet environments and straight-forward control of volume and other functions. A trusted Hearing Care Professional can help you decide which is best for you.
