Digital Hearing Instruments The term DIGITAL is used so often today, it can be confusing. When the term "digital" is used while referring to hearing aids, it generally means the hearing aid is 100% digital. In other words, the hearing aid is indeed a "complete computer." 100% digital hearing aids have been commercially available since 1996 and are really wonders of modern technology. They can process sound using incredibly fast speeds such as 100 to 200 million calculations per second. Interestingly, most 100% digital hearing aids have analog components, such as the microphone and the receiver. 100% digital's transform analog information into a digital signal and process the sound to maximize the speech information you want to hear, while minimizing the amplification of sounds you do not want to hear.

Digital Hearing DevicesToday's digital technology has evolved from first generation (early models) to fourth generation (state of the art) which allows the audiologist maximal control over the sound quality and the loudness of the hearing aid. More importantly, all of this happens "automatically" and allows the audiologist to tailor or customize your hearing aids to what you want and need to hear. In summary, if you want unsurpassed technology, GO DIGITAL - get 100% digital hearing aids.
