(NAPSI)—Whether heading to the gym before work, meeting up with
friends for dinner, or flying across the country for a business trip, if you’re
like many people, your life seems busier than ever. If you also have hearing
loss, you might wonder how hearing aids can fit in. While there are many
different kinds of hearing aids, not all are designed for today’s
Here are four features to keep in mind when choosing hearing aids.
1. Portable recharging: One of
the worst things that can happen to hearing aid wearers is for their
batteries to die while they’re out and about. That’s why rechargeability is one of the biggest trends in hearing
aids today. While most rechargeable hearing aids require a charger that plugs
into the wall, the newest models offer a portable charger that can keep them
charged for three full days—great for a business trip or weekend
2. Modern style: Although the
basic shape of hearing aids hasn’t changed much over the years, the
newest offerings are designed to look like modern consumer electronics.
Instead of the typical tear-drop shape, they’re slim and sleek. When
combined with bold, vibrant colors, they look more like a cool pair of earbuds than assistive devices.
3. Exceptional hearing:
Certainly, the main goal of hearing aids is for you to hear better, so you’ll
want hearing aids that help you understand speech clearly, even in noisy
situations such as a crowded train or a loud restaurant. Also, with some
hearing aids, your own voice can sound tinny or mechanical, so it’s
important to get the kind with a feature to make your voice sound as natural
as possible. This way, you’ll be able to hear confidently in any
4. Wearing comfort: If you’re
going to wear something on your ears all day, you want it to be comfortable.
Hearing aids used to be large, clunky, and awkward but the newest models are
lightweight, able to fit most ear types, and designed with comfort in mind.
They’re also robust and resistant to dirt and moisture, so you can wear
them throughout your day.
