Relationship Between Memory and Programs In Hearing Aids

The terms memory and program are often used interchangeably, as they usually refer to the same feature in hearing aids. Both terms refer to the number of different varieties of hearing aid settings the user would have access to while wearing the hearing aids. Most hearing aids today are available with one to four different listening memories, or programs.

The hearing care professional can program many different settings for the various features that are in the hearing aids. These settings are customized for each individual user, based on the hearing loss and listening requirements for that person. Depending on when and where the programs or memories will be used, they are programmed to be more optimal for that particular listening situation and may even include the activation of features such as directional microphones and/or noise reduction. Although there are many possibilities, some examples where a separate memory, or program, might be used are: listening to music, noisy environments, and talking on the telephone.
