Smart Hearing Aids Make Life Easier
Intelligent hearing aids have been around for many years, in essence every hearing aid is an intelligent devices. The current Siemens models, however, go one step further because they are smart. They adapt automatically to each listening situation and their wearers’ listening preferences. They communicate with each other as a pair and also with other modern communication and consumer electronics. Further they mimic natural hearing processes so that they can deliver a natural sound quality.

Smart Hearing Aid Features, What Can You Expect?
Working together as a pair
Hearing happens in your ears, understanding actually happens in your brain. When we hear, our brain takes the natural sound supplied by both ears to make sense of what our ears are hearing. Traditional hearing aids, even when fitted to both ears interfered with this natural hearing process because they failed to retain the natural cues. However, smart hearing aids are able to exchange information between them allowing them to work as a pair making processing decisions together which allows them to mimic natural hearing. This feature goes by many names such as binaural processing or binaural hearing etc.
Automatically optimising for the sound environment
Smart hearing aid technology analyses the surrounding sound environment constantly, but it goes one step further by then optimising the performance of the hearing aids accordingly. It simply means the hearing devices know what kind of sound situation you’re in constantly. Your listening needs and how they should work will be different depending on your sound environment. Smart hearing aids from Siemens accurately and instantly differentiate the sound environments and then deliver the performance that’s needed.
Automatically adapting to your needs
Having analysed the sound environment together, smart hearing aids use their ability to talk to each other to make processing decisions together. This ability to make decisions as a pair really gives real power and performance. They then automatically adapt their performance as a unit to provide the best listening experience in that situation. For example, at a noisy gathering, they would automatically focus on the person talking in front of you while reducing speech and noise coming from other directions. However, in a quiet place the hearing aids would allow you to hear sounds from all around you.
Learning how you like to hear
The latest smart hearing aids from Siemens will also learn your specific listening preferences. As you use them, they learn how you like them set in different situations. No hearing aid, no matter how smart, can fully anticipate your preferences from day one. What they will do is learn your preferences over time.
