2013 Hearing Technology to Fit Your Active Lifestyle!

Couple toasts 2013 hearing technology that will fit their active lifestyle.

Once upon a time, hearing technologies were mocked for their clunky appearance and limited functions, but no longer. 2013 hearing technologies have advanced by leaps and bounds with enough creative innovations to make even the most technologically savvy consumer stand and applaud. And applaud they have. These sophisticated hearing technologies have won awards globally for some mind-blowing inventions while being recognized in prominent publications, like the New York Times, for their superior contribution to active and healthy lifestyles.

Manufacturers of hearing aids are using a variety of scientific research to come up with these incredible and personalized hearing solutions. Today's hearing aids have targeted the thus far unattainable, as one hearing aid manufacturer dubbed it, "personally tailored sound."

Hearing Technologies Have Evolved to Keep Up With Active Consumers
In our ever-changing world, baby boomers and Gen-Xers have rewritten the aging book. They’ve led the way in exploring new eating options, challenging themselves physically and creatively, and have made efforts to not only keep up with technology but to integrate the latest technologies into their active lifestyles. Their fun-loving and energetic habits have set the tone for those that follow and it’s one of the reasons that they’ve demanded more from their hearing aids.

Gen-Xers and baby boomers are well aware of the connection hearing has to overall health, both mental and physical, but they’re not willing to sacrifice they’re lifestyles or their style in general for better hearing. They want to be able to wear their hearing aids when they’re out on the town, swimming, running, and working or just working out. And now, they can. Technology has responded to these demands, producing some of the most discreet and innovate, yet simple to use and stylish devices ever available.

What the Rapid Advances of Hearing Technologies Mean for You
You ears are as unique as your fingerprints. All of our senses are personal, but hearing is personal and complex. Hearing technology has the near impossible jobs of providing comfort, increasing sound, decrease background noise and a hundred other small details that your ears do instantly and that make your hearing unique to you. Think about it. What is loud to one person may not be loud enough for another. And what is comfortable to one person might not be comfortable for another.

Technology has risen to the challenge of interpreting sound and creating hearing aids that mimic natural hearing, but these amazing advances alone aren’t enough to create the feeling of personally tailed sound—sound that is specific to you. Using specialized and highly sophisticated computer software manufacturers have created a way to optimally fit hearing aids to make them not only find your ideal comfort level, but to take all of these technologies and adjust them to your specific hearing functions and needs.

In the past few years increased knowledge about how we hear has allowed for extraordinary auditory evolutions. Crucial new discoveries about pitch perception in music, speech, and sound location have gone into refining the latest hearing aid technologies to meet the needs of today’s savvy consumers. Some modern scientific breakthroughs include:

• Dedicated speech sensors identify language while diminishing background noise.
• Directional Microphones hone in on specific sounds-- no matter what direction they originate from, decreasing unwanted noises.
• Superior sound systems capture and preserve the naturalness of your environment, including speech.
• Open fit hearing aids eliminate the once troublesome occlusion effect—a hollow, booming, or echoing sound of a wearer’s own voice.
• Information storage systems allow hearing aids to learn a wearer’s preferences, recording them and adjusting automatically when it detects similar noise situations.
• Wireless technology allows streaming of information from computer, iPod, DVD, television, or car GPS directly to a wearer’s hearing aids.
• Resistance to dust, wind, and water making them the perfect choice for active people!
• Listening features that enable listeners to hear phone conversations clearly in both ears without added accessories.

People who deal with their hearing loss are shown to feel and act younger and are seen as more in touch. They have less problem understanding conversations, are more relaxed in social settings, and because today’s hearing technologies are so small, discreet, and stylish old hearing aid stigmas are not just fading away, they’re being demolished.
