Learning More About Hearing Loss To understand hearing health and hearing loss, you should first understand how your ear works to capture sound and transmit it to your brain. The outer ear is designed to capture sounds and funnel them into the ear canal. The sounds enter your ear canal, where they cause vibrations in your eardrum. The eardrum has the job of transferring the sound waves from your outer ear to your inner ear. As the sound passes through the inner ear, it vibrates tiny hair cells that represent individual frequencies or pitches. If you think about the inner ear as a piano, some hairs represent the highest notes on the piano, and some represent the lowest. As the various hairs vibrate, it triggers transmission of those frequencies to your brain for interpretation of what sound you have heard. Your ability to hear clearly can be impacted by certain medical conditions, genetics, accidents, prolonged exposure to loud noises, or even aging.
Signia Siemens Hearing Aids - Signia Siemens is focused on technology that can be clinically proven by independent studies to be a true benefit to patients. Two independent clinical studies prove that Siemens Signia technology is better than normal hearing in demanding listening environments (University of Northern Colorado, 2014 and Oldenburg Horzentrum Research institute in Oldenburg, Germany, 2013). Signia and Siemens Primax features significantly reduced listening effort, which has benefits in the short-term and in the long-term. Speech recognition performance for those with hearing loss were equal to normal-hearing individuals (University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, USA HARL, University of Western Ontario NCA, London Ontario, Canada and NAL, Sydney, Australia). Siemens have been engineering hearing instruments for over 147 years. Signia Siemens is the preferred premier treatment for hearing loss. Signia Siemens won two prestigious Innovation Awards for the Cellion Primax hearing aid and the Signia Siemens myHearing app at the CES 2017. Over the years more of our patients have preferred Signia Siemens technology, quality and reliability over other major brands.
Completely-in-canal (CIC) hearing aids are the smallest type of hearing aids choices. These hearing aids have good cosmetic appeal and are different from others as they are custom fitted to the inside of your ear canal to amplify sounds in individuals with mild to moderately severe hearing loss.
The sense of hearing is an incredibly important component of the way people experience life. When individuals begin to lose this sense, the negative effects can be profound. From both a physical and a psychological standpoint, hearing impairment is a very difficult affliction. However, by understanding hearing aid technology, people can, in most cases, restore much of their ability to take full part in the life around them.
Additional features Some hearing aid optional features improve your ability to hear in specific situations: Noise reduction. All hearing aids have some amount of noise reduction available. The amount of noise reduction varies. Directional microphones. These are aligned on the hearing aid to provide for improved pick up of sounds coming from in front of you with some reduction of sounds coming from behind or beside you. Some hearing aids are capable of focusing in one direction. Directional microphones can improve your ability to hear when you're in an environment with a lot of background noise. Rechargeable batteries. Some hearing aids have rechargeable batteries. This can make maintenance easier for you by eliminating the need to regularly change the battery. Telecoils. Telecoils make it easier to hear when talking on a telecoil-compatible telephone. The telecoil eliminates the sounds from your environment and only picks up the sounds from the telephone. Telecoils also pick up signals from public induction loop systems that can be found in some churches or theaters, allowing you to hear the speaker, play or movie better. Wireless connectivity. Increasingly, hearing aids can wirelessly interface with certain Bluetooth-compatible devices, such as cellphones, music players and televisions. You may need to use an intermediary device to pick up the phone or other signal and send it to the hearing aid. Remote controls. Some hearing aids come with a remote control, so you can adjust features without touching the hearing aid. Direct audio input. This feature allows you to plug in to audio from a television, a computer or a music device with a cord. Variable programming. Some hearing aids can store several preprogrammed settings for various listening needs and environments. Environmental noise control. Some hearing aids offer noise cancellation, which helps block out background noise. Some also offer wind noise reduction. Synchronization. For an individual with two hearing aids, the aids can be programmed to function together so that adjustments made to a hearing aid on one ear (volume control or program changes) will also be made on the other aid, allowing for simpler control.
