Every year hearing aid technology advances, and companies are creating intelligent and sophisticated designs that impress us with their innovative programs and settings. Looking back at 2017, there are a few devices that stand out as being truly exceptional.
Phonak Audeo B-R
What makes Audeo B-R so special? This is a hearing aid that’s truly designed to simplify your life, monitoring the sounds around you, and automatically changing between programs and settings to give you the best sound quality, whether you’re in the quiet of your living room, on the street, or out for dinner with friends. The Audeo B-R is especially focused on picking up on speech sounds, making soft speech louder, and helping you hear all the consonants you need to hear to be able to understand easily.
But don’t just take our word for it. Audeo B-R is also a winner of the iF Design Award for their incredible hearing aid. Chosen from over 5,500 entries, Audeo B-R is definitely something special. One of its award-winning features is its lithium-ion rechargeable battery system, that can provide 24 hours of power on a single charge. Don’t have time for a full charge but find yourself running low on power? No problem. Just place the hearing aids in the charger for 30 minutes, and you’ll have an extra 6 hours of battery life.
ReSound LiNX 3D
While ReSound doesn’t have the battery power of the Audeo B-R, it’s LiNX 3D Made for iPhone hearing aid sure packs a punch. While this hearing aid is also rechargeable, we’ve picked this as one of our favorite hearing devices because of it’s amazing features that let you connect to your devices and the world around you in a whole new way. With seamless streaming, this digital hearing aid can do it all. Having trouble hearing on the phone? Not anymore. The LiNX 3D hearing devices act as wireless headphones, so all audio from your phone goes straight to your ears. They can be connected to any device that’s Bluetooth enabled, so that includes your cellphone, TV, computer, and almost any other device you may use. You’ll be able to hear audio and music like never before.
Not only that, but the LiNX 3D is easy to control, with a smartphone app that allows you to discreetly change programs and settings whenever you need to. However, this app does more than just change settings, and that’s why we love it. You can use the app to record what hearing difficulties you’re having in specific listening environments. By sharing this information on the app, your audiologist can tailor your programs and settings to overcome the listening challenge you’re facing. Next time you visit that spot, all you’ll have to do is enable that setting, and you’ll be able to hear easily.
Rechargeable hearing technology is definitely in, and Signia is making waves with Cellion, a high-power hearing aid that can run for 2 days on a single charge. You can hear in complex listening environments, as well as unlimited Bluetooth streaming, all without worrying if you’ll run out of power. A wireless inductive charging system means the best in charging convenience. Just place the hearing aids on the charger and the hearing aids will do the rest. This is possible through a lithium-ion power cell that ensures you’ll never run out of power unexpectedly. Not only is this one of the most powerful hearing aids on the market, it also features a sleek, sophisticated design you’ll want to show off.
One of the reasons we love the Cellion hearing aid so much is because of the features that make it so easy for you to hear. Cellion monitors all the sounds around you, automatically focuses on what you want to hear, and reduces distracting background sounds. You’ll spend more time enjoying life, and less time straining to hear.
Signia’s Cellion is also an award winner, and was named a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree for innovation in design.
