Brain hearing is one of the latest developments in hearing health since the digital hearing aid. Not many people are familiar with the difference between this model and those of years past. Some people still imagine the large, uncomfortable hearing aids of the late 20th century when they think of hearing aids, but these are more beneficial, better looking, and more concealable. Let’s take a closer look at this burgeoning technology and how it can help the hearing impaired community.
How Do You Get One?
Unlike many other hearing aids, you cannot get one of these in a big box store. You need to first visit an audiologist so that they can take all of the measurements that they need to make your hearing device work to meet your specific needs. This entails a customization process that would seem excessive if it were not for the absolutely incredibly results that a brain hearing aid device is able to produce.
How Good Are They?
When the brain hearing aids were examined by doctors and their patients in terms of their improvements to the overall hearing quality, 95% of respondents said that they highly approved of the hearing aid technology. Compared with the digital and other forms of hearing aids on the market, with only a 79% approval rate, this is absolutely incredible. With one new development in hearing aid tech, the entire hearing aid market has been transformed for the better.
What Is Brain Hearing?
Brain hearing is a manner of approaching hearing loss that looks to approach hearing loss with a whole-brain approach. After all, hearing occurs in the brain, so it makes little sense to focus on the problems that occur in the inner ear rather than in the entire body. The digital hearing aids that have been used for years bring in sound from the environment and amplify it to compensate for the inner ear’s inability to process sound. This is helpful, but tends to clutter the hearing process, wearing out the brains processing abilities throughout the day, making hearing more difficult. Brain hearing focuses on only bringing in the sound that the inner ear can’t process by itself and sending that to the brain, filtering out everything else. The end result is specific, precision-driven sound that allows for clear hearing to occur.
Brain Hearing Aids: Benefits
There are many good reasons to get a brain hearing aid. Since they are targeted to work within the specific confines of a person’s needs, they have a very high rate of success. They allow the person who uses them to hear more sounds that are occurring around them with a more natural sound, but they also come with four other specific benefits that are causing a great deal of excitement in the hearing impairment community.
Sound Filtering: brain hearing aids can filter out sounds that are not needed to improve the user’s hearing.
Speech Recognition: by recognizing speech patterns, these hearing aids can improve the quality of any conversation.
Sound Focus: even in the midst of multiple other conversations, the sounds outside of your immediate area will be deemphasized.
Spatial Recognition: due to brain hearing’s ability to define sounds from each ear, the people using them can find out exactly where the sounds are coming from.
