are hi-tech marvels. They come in a wide variety of styles from the compact miniature sizes that fit in the ear canal to the larger body style aids. Other styles fit into the outer portion of the ear; still others are worn behind the ear. Newest on the scene are disposable hearing aids.
Hearing aids have gone beyond amplification only. New technology has made it possible for some hearing aids to screen out unwanted background noises, amplify only specific frequencies or mask noises generated in the ear itself.
These are important points when selecting a

High Tech Computer's On Your Ear
High tech computers
Hearing technology is constantly evolving and becoming increasingly advanced. Modern hearing aids are small high-tech computers, constantly being refined and developed to provide better reproduction of natural human hearing.
They come in many different colours.
The progress allows for increasing numbers of sophisticated features to be built into the hearing aids and providing improved sound reproduction. The ability to adapt the devices to individual demands with respect to your daily environment and type of hearing loss is constantly improving.
The most advanced modern digital instruments are constantly analysing the sounds of your environment and changing between built-in programmes, automatically selecting the appropriate programming mode for the specific situation.
The entire sound reproduction is constantly adapted by the hearing aid to provide you with the best possible hearing. This has to be taken into account when prescribing hearing aids.
Intrusive background noise is cut out
Many hearing aids have two microphones, making it possible to focus on specific sound sources while reducing irritating background noise.
At a reception the voice of the person you are looking at can be accentuated while the voices of others around you are softened.
Behind-the-ear hearing aids used to make it difficult for the user to determine the direction of the sounds. This is no longer the case. Complicated calculations in the hearing aids now make it possible for the brain to determine where the sound is coming from. This type of hearing aid has also become sleeker and less obtrusive than earlier models.Some hearing aids are
Advancements in technology
Digital programmable hearing aids allow the audiologist to set up the hearing instrument with an analogue circuit to a wide range of different configurations.He may then proceed to fine-tune the instrument with a high degree of flexibility by using the computer.The computer used will normally be a P.C. and Hi-Pro box.A programmable instrument may have more than one memory, which can be accessed by the use of a button/switch or a remote control handset, e.g.
*a linear programme for quiet environments,
*a wide dynamic range compression programme for more complex environments,
* a directional microphone programme for very complex environments
*A music programme,
*a telecoil programme
*a microphone programme
These programmes may be individually tailored to suit the patient's needs.In addition, should the patient's hearing change the hearing instrument can be reprogrammed to the new requirements,
