The Digital Revolution
Parker Hearing Institute offers the finest digital hearing instruments available, which represent some of the latest advances in hearing technology. But what makes digital so much better than traditional analog hearing aids? All analog hearing aids, including programmable analog hearing aids, are relatively simple sound amplifiers which amplify all the sounds in your environment — including background noises and other distrations that keep you from fully comprehending what’s being said.
Digital hearing instruments, on the other hand, are much more powerful than their analog counterparts. They work by converting the sound from your environment into a digital signal, which is processed by a tiny computer chip located inside the hearing aid. The computer chip identifies and manages background noise, allowing you to understand speech, even though the background noise may still be present. Furthermore, digital signal processing allows your hearing instrument to be customized for your particular hearing loss, while some models can even self-adjust for volume and frequency response, making them ideally suited to changing or difficult hearing environments.
The result? You can hold normal conversations with friends and loved ones — even in noisy environments, such as a crowded restaurant — allowing you to enjoy going out in public again. From GN ReSound and Widex to Oticon, Starkey, Phonak and more, Parker Hearing Institute offers the best digital hearing instruments available anywhere. We also offer a wide range of assistive listening devices to help you hear your radio, television, telephone, alarm clock and more!
