When you walk into a modern hearing center, you will be shocked at how the advancements in technology have revolutionized the industry. And, it’s not stopping any time soon. Jeff Shrive who offers hearing aids in Allentown, Pa., at his Miracle Ear locations says, “Hearing aids are completely different from what they were last decade. Ten years ago, there were entry level analog devices that worked but they weren’t as adjustable and fine-tuned as they are today.” Now, he says, most hearing instrument specialists fit hearing loss like a prescription is fitted to eyeglasses or medication.
The progression really took off when the National Institute of Health (NIH), the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) collaborated to research and improve acoustics and electric technology and their relation to hearing improvement. This alliance made extraordinary breakthroughs by introducing digital hearing aids that currently work with Bluetooth technology where cell phones, certain home phones, televisions and stereos can be live-streamed into the hearing aid.
When searching for hearing aids in Allentown, Pa., Jeff says a major concern for people in the market for hearing aids is vanity. With the help of modern technology, his clients can be rest-assured there are products that are completely concealed into the hearing canal with 100% invisibility. No longer are the days of big, bulky devices that you can spot from across a room. Or at least they don’t have to be. The new Mirage is just this type of hearing device. Jeff Shrive adds, “It is custom fit to the client’s ear and is so small and discreet that no one ever needs to know you’re living with hearing loss.”
Another breakthrough in the world of hearing aids in Allentown, Pa., is the 100% waterproof Aquavie, which you can find at Jeff’s Miracle Ear in Allentown. The hearing aid is a good fit for the active lifestyle; the swimmer; the outdoorsman. Especially if you work around dust, construction or a considerable amount of moisture, this device will remain moisture-free because each device is coated with nano-coating for complete protection.
Jeff asks not to let vanity be a reason that stops you from coming in to get your free initial hearing test in Allentown. Hearing aids can become such an improvement in your life that you don’t even realize the results it can have on your relationships and your overall happiness. Treat your ears as you would your eyes; try to begin testing early. Take preventative steps to ensure all of your senses remain as young as you feel.
