Types of Hearing Aids


The most basic hearing aids can amplify sound, making everything louder. That is not always the best idea! The hearing aid dispensers at Ahrens Hearing Center in Fair Lawn, New Jersey will evaluate your needs to provide the best solution for you.
 
Programmable Analog Hearing Aids
These devices change sounds to amplifiable electrical signals. Depending on your needs, our hearing aid dispensers can program your devices to improve hearing in ranges such as human voice, low tones, or higher pitches. Modern hearing aids also allow the wearer to manually change settings for different situations such as talking in a quiet room, or enjoying dinner in a noisy restaurant.  
 
Digital Hearing Aids
Sounds are changed to computerized code, which allows better filtering of background noise and provides highly customized options depending on the results of your exam. These digital hearing aids can automatically adjust to different sound levels, or selectively increase volume in one direction. 
 
One person may need a hearing aid to amplify sound coming from the front to assist with conversations, while another person may need a hearing aid to amplify sounds from behind. Most people appreciate that high-quality hearing aids can also minimize the effect of loud noises by instantly cutting volume.
