Rechargeable Hearing Aid
Rechargeable Hearing Aid
As technology made everything easier and more convenient, it drastically improved the quality of hearing aid with several advanced features. By introducing rechargeable hearing aids, they not only saved the time and effort of changing batteries but also reduced e-waste in enormous amounts.
They have these inbuilt batteries which won’t demand periodical checkups like disposable batteries. Like smartphones, we just need to plug in the charger to charge the battery. The battery life and capacity entirely depend upon the individual brand we are opting for.
But on average, they need 3 hours of charging to last 24 to 30 hours continuously with several hours of audio streaming and other facilities. Unlike traditional hearing aid with nickel batteries, these hearing aids have lithium-ion batteries that last for 5 years on average. This enables us to use a hearing aid the whole day without consciously worrying about the battery replacement.
Bluetooth compatibility is a feature that allows the hearing aid to connect with mobile phones and other digital devices which has an inbuilt Bluetooth feature. Bluetooth has this exclusive ability to improve the signal-to-noise ratio and eliminate feedback from the microphone because the signal bypasses the microphone and directly enters the hearing aid’s processor. A Bluetooth feature will not experience much interference, which can occur with an FM system.
Some high-end hearing aids have artificial intelligence (AI), which allows them to analyze a sound using a deep neural network. Hearing aids can begin to make these modifications automatically when the environment is recognized by recording volume control settings and program preferences for specific sound environments. A DNN essentially allows hearing aids to begin to simulate how your brain would hear a sound if you weren’t deaf.
- More feasible
- Eliminates the need of changing batteries
- Portable charger
Safer for kids
For kids, wearing hearing aids will find it difficult to change batteries often. If you are using a hearing aid in an environment where children are more frequent, we can’t keep them away from our hearing aid and batteries. We have heard stories about accidentally swallowing batteries and other horror stuff. So it is better to prefer rechargeable hearing aids to disposable batteries.
Easier to handle
People with dexterity issues or those who don’t want to change their batteries periodically need to move for rechargeable hearing aids, as they reduce your worries and comfort your everyday routine just like using cellphones.
