Programmable Digital Hearing Aid
No all the digital hearing aid are programmable and what does programmable mean?It means that an audiologist can modify a hearing aid’s settings for your personal hearing loss – it also means that they can set the aid up so that you can hear the sounds that you want to hear in your everyday environments. There will default options for common situations such as: at home, at a party, at the theatre, listening to music, and so on. You can ask your audiologist to modify these to suit your needs.
Programmable circuit features allow the hearing instrument to be variably reset and adjusted (via an external computer platform and software) closely to the patients targeted needs.
The advantages are the more precise acoustic adjustments that can be made when the product is fitted to the patient. More exact variable adjustments to individual patient preferences can be easily made while wearing (fitting) the aids during the fitting process and the patient can "test drive" different settings in various created environmental conditions (quiet, cafeteria noise, traffic, theater, groups at cocktail parties, etc.)
However, do everyone need these different programmes? The answer is no, this is up to you! Personally, 99% of the time I use my hearing aids on the default setting – I wore analog hearing aids for many years and am used to having the same sounds all the time, so I keep the same programme on.
If you work in a library and party a lot at night then you will probably find you can hear much better with a programme for the quiet library and another for the noisy party.
Modern aids have the ability to be configured exactly how you want them.
Like our hearing aids, JH-D10, JH-D18, and JH-351R4 can be made into programmable type hearing aids, which depend on your need. We have a strong hearing aid D&R team.
