For many people, hearing aids are a necessary tool to help them through daily life, and it’s because of this that finding the right hearing aids is incredibly important. There are a lot out there on the market and they all have different features, as well as many pros and cons.
Answering the question “what is the best hearing aid on the market today?” is incredibly difficult because there are so many different things to consider when deciding on a good pair of hearing aids. Unfortunately, no hearing aid will give you back perfect hearing, no matter what the marketing tells you, but there are a number of hearing aids which do a really good job of recreating the sound.
Recreating that Natural Sound, and Other Features you Should Look for
First off, it’s a good idea to have a quick look at what we consider to be essential features for any hearing aid in 2016.
One of these features is ear-to-ear wireless communication. This feature allows the hearing aids to communicate with one another to find the perfect balance.
The second feature is adjustable noise reduction which allows you to choose to hear more when you need to and less when you don’t.
Thirdly, another really useful feature is the ability to connect your hearing aids to your smartphone so you can remote control them.
Finally, as well as connecting your hearing aids to your phone, you can also find hearing aids which connect to other devices around your house such as TVs, computers, and radios.
Our Top Three Best Hearing Aids
Released in June 2016, the Oticon Opn won’t suit everyone, but they’re the best in class for hearing. They produce a clear, natural sound and are the highest speed out there. The problem is: they’re expensive. They also have no in-ear models and no full sized BTE’s, just a single RIC model. But, if you can afford them, and have the right kind of hearing loss, you’re unlikely to find better hearing aids.
Resound Linx2 9
Cheaper than the Oticon Opn, but still with an incredible ability to recreate the sound, these hearing aids are great for hearing in all environments. They have additional functionality when paired with a smartphone, and have a full range of forms available for any kind of hearing loss. We struggled to find any downside to these ones!
Starkey Soundlens Synergy
Starkey has a wide range of hearing aids, but the Soundlens Synergy really stand out. They’re 20% smaller than any other IICs (invisible in the canal) on the market. This means they’re an option for those with narrow ear canals. They also have full wireless capabilities. The only downside is that they’re probably among the most expensive hearing aids on the market.
Here’s a quick rundown of our high quality and popularly branded hearing aids that we offer:
