Hearing Aid Styles

There are many types of hearing aids available for individuals experiencing variations of hearing loss. This allows us to provide you with a hearing aid that is customisable to your hearing needs and individual preferences.

The difference between analog and digital hearing aids

Analog and digital hearing aids work in different ways. As hearing aid technology evolves, more hearing aids are becoming digital.

Analog hearing aids gather all sound from your environment, like conversation and background noise, and amplifies the volume of this sound equally. These devices are unable to isolate and reduce background noise.

Digital hearing aids transform natural sound into digital codes, allowing the device to amplify important sounds and reduce background noise. Using advanced technology, these hearing aids are highly customisable and offer a variety of features including bluetooth connectivity and rechargeability. 

At National Hearing Care, our digital hearing aids will help you make sense of the sounds around you, so that you can experience and enjoy hearing to your fullest potential.
