Beltone develops and builds digital hearing aids that use state-of-the-art technology to allow users to hear more naturally over hearing aids of the past. Much like our phones and computers have changed drastically in recent decades, today’s hearing devices have changed remarkably.
A digital hearing aid is a hearing aid device that receives sound and breaks the sound waves up into tiny units prior to amplification. A traditional analog hearing aid simply makes the sound wave larger to amplify sounds. Digital hearing aids now adjust automatically to each person’s unique hearing needs and can adapt to almost any surrounding environment. The difference is a device that performs and adapts in ways that “old-fashioned” analog devices would never be capable.
