A great hearing aid is one that will give you clear speech understanding, ensure you don’t feel tired at the end of the day and deliver sound that sounds natural to you. Alta2 will give you all this in the most discreet devices possible. The latest hearing aid from the Danish company comes with every one of Oticon’s BrainHearing™ technologies. These technologies are designed to deliver the right sounds to the brain so that four natural functions can be carried so you can make sense of sound:
Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder recently released a study stating that less sophisticated hearing aids may be better for listening to music. The study was particularly interesting to me, since I work to design and test hearing aids for Widex, a worldwide producer of what we would think of as “sophisticated” hearing aids.
