How digital hearing aids work?

In the past, hearing aids amplified sound, including unwanted noise, which made them annoying to users, discouraging them from retain living quality through a better hearing.

The introduction of digital technology of siemens hearing is a new page to hearing aids. A microphone on the aid receives sound, which is converted to electrical impulses afterwards. Impulses are analyzed instantly. Only selective frequency segments, as per degree of hearing loss of a user, will be converted to amplified sound waves. The technology improves sound quality while eliminating distortion at its best. In addition to that, digital technology allows smaller and multi-functional hearing aids which make siemens hearing devices more user-friendly and effective.
