Hearing Aid BatteriesFor those using disposable batteries in their hearing aids, it is important to make sure you use hearing aid specific batteries. The technology in these batteries is designed to give the wearer maximum power output for as long as possible to ensure optimum hearing and provide enough power to run the hearing aid features. Wearers should not use other battery types even if they fit into their hearing aids as these may not give them good performance from their hearing aids.
Even with hearing aids, the variable sound quality on movies and TV shows can make them difficult to hear. This can be a source of frustration if the hearing aid wearer wants the TV louder than everyone else in the room. It can also be difficult to hear the TV if there are other noise sources in the room, whether that be other people or something like the dishwasher.
Many hearing aid brands have TV streamer accessories that help by streaming the television directly to the wearer’s hearing aids. This results in a better-quality sound being delivered directly to the wearer’s ears. If you are interested in a TV Streamer, talk to your hearing expert at Hearing Aid Specialists SA to find out which one is right for you.
Remote Microphone and Roger Technology
While hearing aids are enough for many wearers to meet their communication needs. Some people need more support with their hearing than just hearing aids, particularly in noisy or challenging listening environments. This might include being at a restaurant, walking
along a busy street or in a shopping centre while talking to someone, or attending a work meeting. For people who need extra support in these situations there is a range of options available that work with different hearing aids.
Some of these are a simple remote microphone that is worn by the talker and sends the speech directly to the listeners hearing aids. There is also the more sophisticated Roger Technology that can be useful in restaurants or meetings. If you are struggling in certain environments, talk to your hearing expert at Hearing Aid Specialists SA to find out if these accessories are right for you.
Hearing aids are the commonly used solution to help people with hearing loss. However, sometimes an alternative option may be better, or a hearing aid wearer may benefit from additional technology used in conjunction with their hearing aids.
