Types and characteristics of hearing aid

There are various types of hearing aids depending on their shape and function. Know the characteristics of each type and find the perfect hearing aid for you.

Hearing aids with various types

The purpose of hearing aids for hearing-impaired people is primarily to hear words. Hearing aids work to improve language listening in various scenes of life, such as “conversation with family and friends”, “communication at work”, and “enjoy TV and movies”.

There are various types of hearing aids. There are differences depending on the price and the functions installed if the appearance looks different. In addition, depending on the signal processing method, it can be broadly divided into analog and digital hearing aids.

There are various types and types of hearing aids, but you should understand the features of each one carefully and choose the best hearing aid according to your hearing, hearing condition, shape, comfort, and budget. Let’s do it.

The age of analog hearing aids

The analog hearing aid amplifies the audio signal (analog) that has entered the hearing aid and outputs it from the speaker. A hearing-impaired person who feels inconvenient to hear is generally difficult to hear not only the words but also the surrounding sounds. Analog hearing aids amplify the surrounding sounds as well as the words you need to hear. It is good for hearing-impaired people to hear sounds that have not been heard before, including words, but to understand the “conversation” you want to hear most using hearing aids, May get in the way. Listening to “conversation” is hindered by the surrounding “noise”. In the case of hearing loss due to aging, speech discrimination ability, which is the ability to hear words, is often reduced, so if there is noise in the surroundings, it tends to be difficult to hear words even if using a hearing aid .

In analog hearing aids that basically amplify the incoming sound as it is, it is extremely difficult to control such “noise”, so there were many impressions that analog hearing aids were “noisy” or “noisy”. It is.

* There are individual differences in how the hearing aid effect is felt.

The advent of digital hearing aids

Digital processing of audio signals

With the introduction of digital hearing aids in the 1990s, hearing aids have made tremendous progress. Digital hearing aids contain a small computer (microprocessor). The sound that enters the digital hearing aid is converted into a digital signal of 0101 … by an “analog / digital converter”. The sound converted into a digital signal is analyzed by a microprocessor and subjected to mathematically complex signal processing. Because it can perform analysis and processing far more detailed than analog hearing aids, it has become possible to adjust the sound to a more suitable sound for each person.

The adjusted sound is natural and close to the original sound. The analyzed and processed digital signal is converted back to analog sound by the “digital / analog converter”. The signal processing performed by digital hearing aids is based on each person’s “Kikoe” and various settings that are stored in advance at the time of purchase. You can change this setting as many times as you like later.

The greatest feature of digital hearing aids is “multi-channel signal processing”. “Multi-channel signal processing” means that the frequency (pitch) of the audio signal is divided into several channels (multi-channel) and the audio signal is processed for each channel. Fine adjustments tailored to the user, which were impossible with analog hearing aids, are now possible with digital hearing aids.

According to the statistical data of the Japan Hearing Aid Manufacturers Association, the ratio of analog to digital in the volume of hearing aid shipments in 2003 was almost the same, but in 2009, the ratio of digital hearing aids accounted for 86%. In this way, digitalization of hearing aids has progressed at a stroke in recent years, and the current mainstream of hearing aids is digital hearing aids.

Specific features of digital hearing aids and the various functions made possible by digital hearing aids will be explained in detail in the section “What is a digital hearing aid?”.

Differences and characteristics of hearing aid types

The difference between analog hearing aids and digital hearing aids was the difference in the way the audio signal was processed, but in general, hearing aid types often refer to differences in shape. This section explains the features of hearing aids by shape.
