Eliminating Annoying Hearing Aid Feedback
Posted by Hearing Northwest on November 14, 2014
Sometimes we jokingly say to new patients that today's hearing aid technology, "Isn't like your grandparent's hearing aids." Yet, this couldn't be truer since many of the reasons that have caused people to avoid wearing hearing aids have not been remedied. The most common of those complaints was around feedback, a.k.a. the high-pitched whistling sounds that hearing aids used to make.
Many of us have experienced this at one point or another, perhaps at a family gathering where the silence was interrupted by the mechanical whistling from a parent or grandparent's hearing aid. Everyone seemed to stop at the same moment and cringe while the hearing aid wearer was happily going about their meal, often unaware of the terrible sound. Fortunately, Audibel hearing aids have virtually eliminated feedback occurrences in their hearing aids through state of the art technology now for several years.
Feedback management technology in Audibel hearing aid devices is called WhistleFree Feedback Cancellation™ and stops feedback sounds within a fraction of a second before the sound is emitted. With feedback eliminated, patients are now freed from the fear of unexpected whistling that interrupts valuable moments. To learn more about this state of the art technology or even try it for yourself with an in-office demonstration, simply contact our office by submitting your information on the Contact Us page or call our office during business hours. We'll be glad to show you this feedback management feature firsthand.
