Hearing Aids: Its Not Just About Better Hearing. Its Also About Wearing Comfort.

If you're just starting to look around for a hearing device, you're in for a big surprise. Long gone are the days of big, clunky devices that amplified all sound equally and were a pain to wear much more trouble than they were worth. So the volume on the TV remained at deafening levels. Hearing aids just weren't right for some people.

My, How Things Change

In the past decade, giant strides have been made in the design and application of hearing aids, making them more automated, much more convenient and actually comfortable to wear. No more stuffed ear feelings, no more ear fatigue at the end of the day. Todays quality hearing aids provide a more natural listening experience and wearing comfort, all in one attractive package.


One of the best examples of this move toward wearer comfort comes from hearing aid designer and maker Bernafon, which introduced its SPIRA flex technology.

The idea was that there should be ONE kit that dispensing audiologists and hearing aid dispensers have at arm's reach, to open that kit and know that all the pieces are going to fit the Bernafon products. That is the only box they have to open. The result? Improved wearing comfort, adaptable to 80% to 90% of hearing aid wearers, and, because SPIRA flex is 100% adaptable right out of the box, wearers don't have to make trip after trip to the audiologists office for minor adjustments.

SPIRA flex employs an open ear design. The circuitry is contained in a BTE (behind-the-ear) device. Connected to the BTE unit is SPIRA flex plastic tubing, directing the sound into the wearer's ear canal. This open ear design allows the wearer to use whatever available hearing s/he has, producing a more natural sound and a more comfortable wearing experience.

Ready to see the latest in hearing aid technology? Good for you. Make an appointment with your audiologist for a hearing evaluation and be sure to ask about open ear technology for comfort, SPIRA flex for fit and Bernafon for quality.
