Digital hearing aids vs analog hearing aids

October 9, 2019 by Cindy  

Hearing aid technologies have changed over the years. Before digital hearing aids came on the scene, hearing aids were based on analog technology alone. 

Analog hearing aids’ sound signals are continuous and uniform in flow, so the sophisticated nuances or layers of sound that digital hearing aids have are missing. Adapting to different sound environments with analog hearing aids means simply turning up the volume, which is very uncomfortable. Also, with analog hearing aids, you don’t have the option to reduce background noises – they would also be amplified. 

Digital hearing aids have sound signals that vary and are individual, bringing natural-sounding speech and audio enriched with depth and variation. Therefore, you can really play with the sound and volume of digital hearing aids, adjusting the experience to your personalized specifications and all your different settings.
