Because today’s more advanced hearing instruments contain microchips, they can be expected to perform many of the operations found in other computer-driven devices. For instance, just as activity trackers worn on the wrist can keep track of how many steps we take throughout the day, hearing instruments with self-learning features can remember the volume and program preferences used in specific listening environments. Users can then train their hearing instruments to “learn” to use these preferred settings by pushing a button on the instrument or using the remote control. Over time, the hearing instrument will eventually learn to turn on the preferred setting as needed. For instance, the hearing instrument may turn to a lower volume setting in the morning.
P.S. Hearing instruments with “data logging” features can internally record the number of hours that hearing instruments are being used, which programs are used, and how often and how much the volume is increased or decreased.
You can’t reverse hearing loss, but a hearing specialist can apply the appropriate care and technology to lessen their effects and improve the quality of sounds you hear. Unfortunately, many people with a hearing impairment are either unaware or ashamed of their condition, and therefore, do not use the advanced hearing aid technology that is available.
