6 Home Remedies to Remove Earwax Naturally

Wednesday, June 12, 2019 3:29:25 PM Asia/Calcutta

Feeling irritation or a sensation of discomfort in your ears? Do you notice changes in your hearing such as a diminished hearing ability or feel that your ears are blocked. Continuous accumulation of earwax might harden it, which later might cause serious problems like itching, pain and other complications, including hearing loss in which case you will have to go for a hearing loss treatment. So why wait until situations turn worse? Hardened earwax is a common problem, but you need to treat it at the right time to avoid further botherations.


What is Earwax Build-up?

Earwax, also known as cerumen, is a grey, orangish or yellowish waxy substance which is produced by the ear canal as a part of the body’s defence mechanism against bacteria and other harmful foreign particles. Earwax also acts as a natural lubricant to trap dirt, thus reducing the growth of bacteria, hence protecting the skin from water and infection.

Earwax removal should not be done on a regular basis as it is essential for keeping away the harmful particles from entering into our ears. It must be done only when required. Earwax is a natural protection for the inner ear and the eardrum.

 

How to Get Rid of Earwax?

Often there are times in which the earwax hardens so much that it becomes difficult for it to fall off naturally. In such a case it is required to remove it manually. A hardened earwax can cause many hearing problems and if you show reluctance in removing it, you will have no other choice left but to go for a hearing loss treatment.

Yes, it is true that there are experts and professionals, mostly Audiologists who can help you get rid of earwax, but you can try a few easy methods to do it yourself at home. And the best part is that all of these earwax removal ways are quite natural with absolutely no risks of any side-effects.

  1. Hydrogen Peroxide - Take 3% hydrogen peroxide solution, water and cotton balls. Mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water to make a solution. Tilt your head sideways with your affected ear facing the ceiling and squeeze some of the solution using a cotton ball in your blocked ear. Let the solution settle for some time and then tilt the head towards the floor to let the extra solution drip off. A single use of this remedy should help remove your earwax and relief you from a blocked ear. Apart from removing earwax, hydrogen peroxide also acts as a disinfectant that will keep away ear infections.

  1. Coconut Oil - Take 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and lightly warm it using a dropper. Pour a few drops slowly in the affected ear and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Now tilt your head to remove the melted earwax. Apply this home remedy as and when required. Coconut oil has the capability to kill a wide range of harmful bacteria that may have accumulated due to the earwax build-up.

  1. Almond Oil - Just like coconut oil, almond oil works as well. Fill a dropper with almond oil at room temperature and use it in the same way as coconut oil. Repeat this method as and when required. Almond oil too acts as a lubricate that helps in the elimination of earwax.

  1. Baby Oil - Yes, that Johnson and Johnson baby oil of your childhood will be very effective in earwax removal. Apply the same method as above. Put a few drops of baby oil in your blocked ear with a dropper or a cotton ball. Also, block the opening of the ear with a dry cotton ball to avoid oil from oozing out of the ear for some time and then remove it afterward. Baby oil contains mineral oil which acts as an effective moisturizer and lubricant and helps to soften the earwax.

  1. Alcohol - Mix 1 part rubbing alcohol and 1 part white vinegar to make a solution. Flush your ear with this mixture to get rid of hardened earwax. Repeat this procedure every few weeks to keep your ears clean free of infections. A mixture of alcohol and vinegar helps dissolve the earwax. While alcohol serves as a drying agent that evaporates when the temperatures are low, white vinegar, on the other hand, has astringent properties for which it fights against microbial infections.

  1. Baking Soda - Mix a quarter teaspoon of baking soda properly with 2 teaspoons of water. Pour a few drops of the solution into the affected ear with a dropper and let it stay for a few minutes. Then tilt your head to remove the melted earwax and clean it with a soft dry cloth. If required, you can repeat using this remedy after a day or two.

With a hardened earwax, one can even face difficulties with hearing aids. If your earwax keeps on accumulating for days, the risks of ear infections and hearing loss increase. So it would be a safe option to remove hardened earwax than to go for hearing loss treatment.

Newborn Hearing Screening: Why is it Necessary?

Saturday, June 1, 2019 5:23:18 PM Asia/Calcutta

Watching your sweet little baby for the first time - moving his/her tiny little hands and smiling at you is such a beautiful moment of happiness and pride. We know that you want the best for your child in every possible way. But do you know that a good life starts with good hearing? So before you come home with your newborn baby, there is one very important test to do (along with many others) - which is a hearing test, or newborn hearing screening.

Yes, there are good chances that your newborn can hear. But according to studies, out of 97% of newborns screened, fewer than 1% are diagnosed with permanent hearing loss. So there still might be a chance of your child born with some hearing problems - no matter how small the chance might be.

Newborn Hearing Screening

Why is Early Intervention Necessary?

From birth, one very important way by which a child learns is by listening and hearing. If a child is not given proper access to the hearing world, he or she won’t develop the speech, language and other communication skills. Although most infants are born without any hearing problems, yet 1 to 3 in every 1000 babies born in the United States is born with some kind of hearing problems.

The first 1-2 years of age is the most crucial period in a child’s life to learn and develop all the developmental skills - primarily with the help of hearing. In this period, the child’s learning capability attains its highest position, due to the presence of the maximum synaptic density or neural interconnections in the brain. The more these neural interconnections, the greater will be the child’s ability to learn new things.

Since synaptic density gradually starts reducing after 2-3 years of age and as he or she gets older, it’s extremely necessary that he or she must be given the opportunity to learn quite well in the first 2 years - and one very important way of doing so is to ensure that your child is having proper access to the hearing world. Early intervention and an early hearing loss treatment will bring a huge difference to the development of communication skills - especially speech and language.

According to professional Audiologists, the intervention should begin before your baby turns 6 months old. If your child receives well and proper access to the hearing world during this time, his or her spoken language development would be better.

 

Why do Newborns Need Hearing Screening?

The goal of newborn hearing screening is to ensure that all the babies who are born with hearing loss are identified as soon as possible so that their hearing loss treatment can be started immediately after. It is only through newborn hearing screening that you would get to know whether your child is suffering from any hearing problems. Sometimes you may think that your child has a normal hearing as he or she is responding to your calls or some sound-producing toys. But this doesn’t prove that your child is not suffering from any hearing problems - chances of a mild or moderate degree of hearing loss can still be there.

Therefore, without a newborn hearing screening, it is difficult to know the minor hearing changes in the child. Don’t ignore even if your child has mild hearing loss or if he or she misses out the less important sounds. Each and every hearing issue is important because every sound is food to the brain!

 

When Should I Go for Hearing Screening for My Newborn Child?

As early as right after your child’s birth. The best decision is to do your child’s hearing screening before taking him or her to home from the hospital where he or she was born. Your goal should be to get your child’s hearing screening done within 1 month of age, get your child’s hearing problems identified within 3 months of age, and if your child is diagnosed with a hearing loss, then start an intervention or hearing loss treatment programme within the first six months.

Nowadays, most well-known hospitals perform routine newborn hearing screenings before you leave the hospital and take your child to your home.

 

How is it Done?

There are a few tests performed in any newborn hearing screening programme that determine whether your child is able to hear well. A good hearing loss treatment programme starts only after identifying whether the individual is really having hearing loss, and if found with one, then what is its severity. And this should be done right after birth.

  • Otoacoustic emissions (OAE) - This test measures how sound waves are produced in your baby’s inner ears. In this test, a miniature microphone and earphone are placed inside your baby’s ears to measure his or her response to sounds played into the ear such as clicks or tones. If your baby has normal hearing, then the sounds would trigger an echo in the ear canal, which is then measured by the microphone placed inside it. If your child is born with any hearing problems, then this echo won’t be produced and hence the microphone wouldn’t record any.

  • Auditory brainstem response (ABR) - This test measures how the auditory nerve and the brain of your child respond to sound. Soft earphones are placed inside your baby’s ears and clicks or tones are played. Three small electrodes are placed on the baby’s head which test the response of the auditory nerve and the brain.

Both of the above screens are quick and takes about 5-10 minutes. Both of them are absolutely painless and can be done when your child is sleeping or laying down still. One or both the screening tests can be used to determine your child’s hearing abilities.

 

What if My Baby Doesn’t Pass the Screening Tests?

Even if your baby doesn’t pass the hearing screening test, then that doesn't necessarily mean that your child is deaf or hard of hearing. The results might be affected by excessive fluid buildup in the child’s ears, or due to excessive noise in the room where the test was performed. There are many cases in which the babies who don’t pass the hearing screening tests have quite normal hearing. But you need to be sure right? So for that you really need to go for further tests, so that you can start your child’s hearing loss treatment in case he or she is identified with a loss.

About 1 or 2 in every 100 babies born don’t pass hearing screening tests. So if your baby is one of them, then you need to consult a professional Audiologist who have good experience working with babies. This test should include a thorough hearing evaluation programme as well as medical evaluation. Make sure that you perform these additional tests as soon as possible and definitely before your baby turns 3 months old. However, it is not a good idea to wait that long.

 

If My Baby is Identified With Hearing Loss, What are the Treatment Options?

Today there are a host of advanced hearing loss treatment options which would provide a wonderful listening experience. However, which option to go for would depend on the type and degree of hearing loss of your baby. It would also depend on your preferences and choices that you think would be good for your baby. This would include lifestyle choices as well as the environment your baby is growing up in.

The various hearing loss treatment options and intervention services include the following -

  • Hearing aids - These are electronic devices which are worn in the ear. These devices, which come in a bundle of advanced features today and a number of shapes and sizes, amplify the sounds for you to help you hear better.

  • Cochlear implant - These are electronic devices which are surgically implanted to replace the damaged cochlea of the inner ear.

  • Language and communication - Speech and language therapy is very important to help a child learn and develop communication skills while using hearing devices.

  • Assistive listening devices - These are devices which enhance the child’s listening experience, like the microphone or telecoil.

There’s nothing to worry about if your kid is diagnosed with hearing loss. Your child is in the 21st century, which is radically changing in terms of a technological boom. With so many hearing loss treatment options available today, hearing loss will no more be a barrier in your child’s journey towards success.

Are you aware of any latest hearing loss treatment technology specially designed to enhance the hearing ability of children?

5 Common Hearing Aid Disasters: How to Deal With Them?

Wednesday, May 29, 2019 2:47:03 PM Asia/Calcutta

You have finally realised that you have hearing loss and accepted your hearing problems. You have decided to take an appointment with your Audiologist and have started wearing hearing aids as recommended by him or her. You have also developed an excellent habit of taking care of them like cleaning them and keeping them in a safe case as advised, whenever you are not using them - such as at night or while you are having a shower.

Congratulations you are on the right track! You are following the care and maintenance rules for your hearing aids regularly and perfectly. But life isn’t always the way you want. What if you happen to drop your ear machine accidentally? What if you forget taking them off at the time of bathing? Or what if you realised that you left your hearing aids at home when you needed them really badly?

Anything can happen! No matter how careful you might be, you are sure to drop your hearing aids at least once in your lifetime. Panicking won’t be the solution. You need to know some tips to handle situations like these.

 

What if...

You drop your hearing aids in water, such as the bathroom?

Sadly, this happens to a lot of people, especially those who have the habit of taking them off in the bathroom. If you accidentally drop your hearing aids in the bathroom and if the toilet or the sink is clean enough, stop all sources of running water. Grab it as fast as you can. If you can’t do it, quickly call someone and ask the person to help you retrieve it, especially someone who is handy with a pipe wrench.

After you have retrieved your device successfully, immediately remove the batteries and leave open the battery compartment for the internal parts of the device to dry.

Don’t worry about the device getting damaged, as nowadays most of the modern hearing devices have a protective nano-coating which can be disinfected by a simple alcohol wash. However, if you drop your ear machine in the unflushed toilet and end up ruining it, then consider it as a biohazard and you should not use it further.

How to avoid this?

Before you enter the bathroom, find a place in your bedroom, preferably the centre of your bed, sit down and take off your hearing aids and keep them on a soft and dry surface. Using a soft towel will be a good idea to take your hearing aids off as it will act as a cushion the blow and reduce the bouncing in case you drop them off. Make sure to carefully put them back in the hard protective case provided with your product. However, if the bathroom is the only option for you to take your hearing device off, then close off all the taps and other sources of running water and clog the sink with a tissue or handkerchief. Always remove your hearing aids on a dry surface, and if possible do it on a soft cloth or a tissue.

 

What if…

You wear your ear machine in the shower or the pool?

Yes, we understand that today’s digital hearing aids are so comfortable that you often forget that you are wearing them! Naturally, you forget to take them off before going for the shower or jumping into the pool. You may have developed the habit of removing your device if you have a fixed schedule for bathing or swimming. However, this habit might break sometimes, especially if you are out on your vacation.

So here’s what you should do if you accidentally get your hearing aids wet. Immediately remove them from your ears, dry them with a soft and dry towel and as mentioned above, remove the batteries and keep the battery doors open for an hour or so, and if possible, overnight. Use a hearing aid dryer (if you are carrying one), to dry the internal parts of the device. Never ever use a hair dryer, an oven or the microwave to dry your hearing device, as they would destroy your precious hearing aids. If in the morning, however, you find that your device is not working, contact your Audiologist immediately.

How to avoid this?

Make it a habit to feel for your hearing aids with both of your hands before entering the pool or going for a shower. You can also remind yourself by setting alarms or posting notes by the shower or attach one with clips to your swimsuit or towel. Having a hearing aid case handy is also a good idea.

 

What if…

You accidentally drop your hearing aids outside?

The moment you realise that your hearing aids are gone, pause right there with whatever you are doing! Don’t panic or start searching for it in a rush. Keep calm. Ask everyone who is with you to stand still without moving anywhere. Feel your body right from your head to your feet to search for it and to check whether the device is attached to any of your garments. Try to recall what may have caused it to go off your ears. Did you wear a scarf, a cap or other such head garments? Or did anything get brushed against your ears? When did you last pull it off and where was the place? From when did you start having a muffled hearing?

Simply relax and start retracing your steps. Most probably you will find your device.

How to avoid this?

If you wear caps, scarfs, earmuffs or other garments in and around your head and neck region, do take great care while taking off the garment, especially if you are wearing a behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid, so as to avoid your device coming off along with it. Hearing aids are really necessary when you are outside your house, not only for entertainment purpose but for your safety as well. Check from time to time whether your hearing devices are right in the place they are meant to be. Also, nowadays specially-designed earmolds or ear-grips are available which are designed to keep your ear machine in their proper place, without getting displaced. Consult your Audiologist and ask for one. They are really helpful and would help you stay relaxed when you are on an outing! Just chill out and have fun!

 

What if…

You left your device at home when you really needed it?

Everyone is always on the rush and most hearing aid users are sure to miss out their hearing aids some day or the other. Again don’t panic if this happens to you! Yes, of course, it is the most common hearing aid disaster among all others. If you can, immediately return to your home, because hearing is very important for just anything you do! Try to retrieve them. If you have the habit of keeping them at a safe place, well and good! If not, do take the help of someone to find it for you.

How to avoid this?

Wearing hearing aids is a must for your general health, your communication ability as well as to keep our brain active and stimulated all the time. Your hearing loss is not intermittent, so your hearing aid wearing schedule shouldn’t be intermittent as well. You need them every time (except of course in the shower or the pool and while you are asleep)!

The best way to avoid wearing your ear machine when you are going out is to set up a routine as prescribed by your Audiologist and make it a habit to wear it accordingly.

You can also make it a habit to put your hearing aids (stored in the protective case) in your bag which you take with you daily while going out.

Another way is to post notes beside the door on the inside to remind you of wearing your hearing device before you leave your house. You can also tell someone at your home to remind you before you step outside.

 

What if…

Your hearing aid is eaten!

Yes, it can be true, however strange it might seem! Do you have pets in your house? Or small children? Pets or small children are often curious to explore new things with their mouth. Forget pets or children! You will be surprised to know that even adults have swallowed hearing aids by mistaking them for food, especially if they have kept them near some nuts or candies. Because the digital hearing aids of today are so tiny and colourful that often can confuse you with some yummy tidbits!

Anyway, what’s done cannot be undone! What you can do is to check whether your pet or your kid has swallowed the device. If not, then try to retrieve it from its mouth and check for any broken parts or batteries. Swallowing batteries is really dangerous! If the device is already been ingested, rush your pet or your child to the doctor (a veterinarian in case of a pet) immediately, as first of all, it is toxic to health!

After you have ensured the safety of your pet or your kid, claim for the hearing aid. If you find that all the parts are intact along with the battery, clean it with an alcohol wipe and check its performance. If it fails to work or if you find that your device is broken, contact your Audiologist. Be sure to take with you each and every part that you retrieved from your damaged hearing aid.

How to avoid this?

The very important thing that you should do is to keep your hearing aids out of reach of pets and small children. Always keep it at a level much higher from the ground. Also, make it a point to store them in the hard protective case provided with the device to avoid losing or falling the device from heights.

You can also make small enclosures or home for your pets so that they don’t loiter around the house and mess up with things. Also, do engage some time in training your pet.

 

Anything can happen anytime. Of course, it’s good to know about these tips, but the most important thing that you must do is to ensure at the time of purchase that you are getting a good warranty period and ask your dealer whether that would cover repairing or replacing facilities.

 

Which do you think is the most common hearing aid disaster?

Which of the above have you faced in your day-to-day lives?

Are you aware of any other hearing aid disaster which the hearing aid wearers must be careful about?

Kindly tell us in the comments section. We would love to hear from you!

Stem Cells and Hearing Loss Treatment

Saturday, May 25, 2019 11:18:16 AM Asia/Calcutta

Cells of the body perform specific functions. But stem cells are cells which are undifferentiated but have the power to perform as any cell as required by the body. This characteristic of stem cells has also shown some promises to treat several health conditions and diseases. This, therefore, has made Audiologists to question whether these stem cells could be used for hearing loss treatment. It is still an area which is under research.

 Stem Cells and Hearing Loss Treatment

How Do We Hear?

The human ear can be subdivided into three main parts - the outer ear, the middle ear and the inner ear. Sound waves travel from the outer ear to the middle ear in which the small ear bones, known as the ossicles, vibrate on receiving the sound stimuli. This vibration is sent to the inner ear and passes through the cochlea and stimulates the hair cells present in it. Hair cells are the main components for which we can hear. These are small sensory cells present in bundles inside the cochlea of the inner ear which convert the sound vibrations into electrical impulses. These impulses are sent to the brain via the auditory nerve and then can a person ‘hear’.

When these microscopic hair cells and/or the auditory nerve are damaged - by disease, injury or due to ageing - a person suffers from severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss. Although fish, amphibians and birds have the ability to regenerate damaged hair cells, mammals don’t have this ability to regenerate hair cells naturally on their own. Although wearing hearing aids or going for other hearing loss treatment methods such as cochlear implantation, would help you to hear, but otherwise, your hair cells don’t regenerate on their own.

 

What was the Scenario Yesterday?

According to studies, about 90% of the permanent sensorineural hearing loss is due to damages in either the hair cells or the auditory nerve cells. Scientists previously believed that the hair cells in mammals once damaged could not be restored.

But some studies suggested that when a hair cell develops, it inhibits the neighbouring cells from becoming hair cells. Instead, they become supporting cells, which made scientists wonder whether these supporting cells have the ability to turn into hair cells when the neighbouring hair cells are injured or damaged.

It was very necessary for the researchers to find an answer to this. Hence, a research study was carried out by a group of NIH-supported scientists to test the destroyed hair cells in the inner ear of a mouse. A time-lapse photography set-up showed that the neighbouring supporting cells of the damaged hair cells gradually migrated to the hair cell region and grew to be hair bundles on their surfaces. Although the procedure couldn’t restore the hearing ability of the mouse, this experiment definitely opened up windows to new possibilities of whether damaged hair cells could be restored, thus restoring or at least improving hearing loss. This would then be the greatest research in the history of the development and the innovations made in the hearing loss treatment procedures to date.

 

What New Researches Say?

Hearing loss has become an alarming problem as it affects people of all ages from birth to adulthood. This compelling need to address the problem, together with the previously done researches, has urged scientists to invent methods and the possibilities for hair cell regeneration with the help of stem cells.

The previous research studies have proved that the supporting cells have the ability to become hair cells under certain conditions as and when required such as when the hair cells of the inner ear have been damaged or severely injured. NIH-supported scientists have identified a gene in mice called Rb1 which inhibits the growth of new hair cells in the early stages of their development. An experiment was done with mature hair cells growing in culture dishes in which it is proved that if this gene is deleted, these hair cells were able to regenerate.

However, the hearing ability would not be restored if the nerve endings were not properly reconnected. The scientists were later able to find out a way to successfully reestablish connections between these newly formed hair cells and the nerve cells in an organised way. This can bring permanent solutions in the field of hearing loss treatment.

 

Further Researches to be Made in the Future

Although experiments proved that it is possible to reconnect the hair cells with the nerve cells, yet more discoveries and inventions are yet to be made which would include the following -

  • The hair cells generated from the stem cells should be mature enough to mimic the environment that the naturally developing hair cells would experience.

  • How these newly generated hair cells would send appropriate signals to the hearing centre of the brain needs to be explored.

  • New methods yet to be developed to protect the hair cells from damage after trauma or disease, thereby enhancing the survival of these hair cells. For this, a better understanding of the cellular and the molecular mechanisms of the body need to be studied.

Researches are going on to use stem cells to regenerate hair cells and restore the lost hearing ability of a person. If this becomes a success, then in the future it might be even possible to eradicate hearing loss.

7 Must-have Features in Your Digital Hearing Aids

Wednesday, May 22, 2019 7:19:35 PM Asia/Calcutta

You are extremely mesmerised by the advancements hearing devices are making and you have planned to buy digital hearing aids. Because these are the hearing aids you need so badly! You feel that the technologies found in these digital hearing aids are just for you!

Of course, hearing aids are primarily meant for amplifying sounds, but the technological boom in the past few decades have also found their way into listening devices as well, which made many other features to be incorporated into them. Many hearing aid manufacturing companies offer multiple features which are designed to cater to your personal needs according to your lifestyle choices. But there are certain features which you must look for while buying digital hearing aids. While the previous analog devices amplified all the sounds without differentiating between what’s really necessary and what’s not, the digital hearing aids of this generation are built only to make your life easier and simpler - with a more comfortable hearing experience.

Do make it a point to discuss your lifestyle choices with your Audiologist while buying digital hearing aids and leave the rest upon him to decide which device would suit you the best - based on both your hearing abilities and personal requirements. Check out for these must-have features in the device you would plan to buy -

  • Multi-channel - Digital hearing aids have the option of multi-channels. Channels in hearing aids enhance the listening experience of an individual by modifying each of the discrete sections in the sound frequency ranges. The more the channels in a hearing aid, the more capable will the device be to work with more and more discrete sections by dividing the frequency range into smaller parts.

  • Binaural processing - Just as you won’t have a complete and balanced vision if you see with only one eye, similar is the case with our hearing mechanism. If both of our ears are not properly engaged in receiving, transferring and converting sound stimulus due to certain problems in either of them, we would experience an unbalanced and muffled hearing. That means if we use binaural digital hearing aids and if the two are not properly linked, then we would not have a very enjoyable listening experience.

  • Digital noise reduction - Using cheap hearing aids of very poor quality would make you feel annoyed and frustrated in noisy listening situations, such as on the roads or at a busy restaurant, particularly if you are having a conversation with someone. The modern digital hearing aids are quite advanced with noise-cancellation features which would reduce or cancel out the background noises, enabling you to stay focused on speech.

  • Digital feedback reduction - Often the analog hearing aids produced internal feedback sounds due to improper fitting of the device in the ear canal. Choose digital hearing aids which would reduce these annoying feedback sounds.

  • Directional microphones - The hearing aids of today are designed to provide you with more comfort, especially in noisy listening situations. One amazing feature to combat the problem of distinguishing speech in noise is that of adaptive directionality. Digital hearing aids, nowadays, are being updated with more advanced directionality features to help you stay focused on the conversation - no matter in which listening condition you are in.

    The directional microphones in hearing aids enable the user to concentrate on the sound sources they want to, by ignoring or minimising the others which are relatively unimportant. Digital hearing aids can have two or more directional microphones separated by a specific distance. Although the directionality feature allows the listener to focus on sounds coming from the front, one advantage of multiple microphones in hearing devices is that you can even listen to someone speaking from behind.

    To learn more about how directional systems work in ear machine, read our blog on ‘The Concept of Directionality Used in Digital Hearing Aids’.

  • Multiprogram - Digital hearing aids of today are advanced with multiprogram storing capabilities. In other words, it would save your volume and program preferences which you have set in different listening situations.
  • Direct streaming - With the introduction of wireless technologies like Bluetooth and WiFi, life has become so much easier and enjoyable. Wonders happened when these technologies found there way in listening devices as well. There are so many apps that allow you to connect and easily pair your digital hearing aids to your smartphones via the latest wireless technologies. Thus, the hearing devices of this generation can now directly stream your phone calls and music into your hearing aids from your smartphone. This allows your hearing aids to turn into a wonderful pair of stereo headphones! Isn’t that absolutely wonderful?

In a nutshell, digital hearing aids are incomplete without these smart features. Do make a smart choice and live a better quality of life.
