Long gone are the days of analogue and semi programmable hearing aids. Digital hearing aids have become an industry standard now. They have become super mini computers in human ears that produces clearer sound, manages background noise more effectively and comes with wireless connectivity. Within the last few years, digital hearing aid technology has set new benchmarks for digital sound processing.

In comparison to other healthcare industries, the hearing healthcare industry is relatively small. Nonetheless, it is second to none, when it comes to spending billions of dollars on research and development to make hearing aids better, slicker and high performing mini devices. There are some hearing aid manufacturers, who, spend more towards research and development programs to develop better hearing aid products than others. This obviously results in, for the end user, price variations for the hearing aids from different manufacturers.

In the day and age of fierce competition, there is little to separate between the few top hearing aid manufacturers as far as the hearing aid features are concerned. The ultimate success with hearing aid is not dependent on hearing aid itself but more importantly the hearing care offered by the hearing care specialist. The success and benefit from hearing aid fitting primarily relies on, you – the wearer, knowledge and skills of hearing care specialist, and least of all, on hearing aid itself.
