Hearing aid manufacturers
All hearing aids today use digital signal processing (DSP) technology to amplify desired sounds (such as speech or music) into a person's ear, and filter out the undesirable sounds (such as background noise). No hearing aid can do this perfectly. However, hearing aid manufacturers are always refining their technology and trying new strategies. The flagship products from any manufacturer contain the manufacturer's most recent innovations in digital signal processing, including speed of processing, background noise reduction, wireless connectivity with other products and sound quality. The articles below provide an overview of products on the market today from major hearing aid and cochlear implant companies.
