Digital vs analogue hearing aids

Analogue hearing aids simply amplify the sounds around you while digital hearing aids convert the sound waves into digital signals. 

Digital hearing aids are usually fitted and fine-tuned by a hearing care expert. They can also be programmed to adjust automatically to the sound environment (unlike analogue hearing aids.)

As technological advancements increase, the capabilities of the latest digital hearing aids are phenomenal.

How do digital hearing aids work?

Modern hearing aids work by amplifying sound via a three-component system:

  1. Microphone – Receives the sound waves and converts them into electrical signals.
  2. Amplifier – Increases the strength of the sound signals and sends them to the ear.
  3. Receiver/speaker - Converts the amplified electrical signal into sound and delivers it into the ear canal.

Digital hearing aids automatically adjust the volume and listening programmes based on the environment.
