The technical development of hearing aids has undergone significant and very rapid development in recent years. The goal is no longer only to amplify the sounds, but also to provide customized solutions that meet the user’s hearing and expectations.
There is a proper solution for everyone!
Both behind-the-ear and in-the-canal hearing aids have seen a significant reduction in size, and one can choose from a wide variety of colours and shapes. Modern hearing aids provide an impeccable hearing experience and at the same time they eliminate the main flaws of old hearing aids.
No more constant beeping!
Modern devices are sporting feedback cancellation systems which eliminates feedback and beeping permanently so one can enjoy the hearing and understanding without compromise.
They feature noise reduction and speech enhancement technology to provide an outstanding experience.
The most advanced devices can be controlled wirelessly, so should you use your mobile phone, your TV or your computer, these hearing systems let you hear all the important things and information directly through the hearing aid.
A hearing aid is not just a simple amplifier!
It is a special device with features and technical parameters designed to suit perfectly to the individual needs of the hearing impaired. For a hearing impaired, a precisely tuned frequency response is especially important.
A bigger problem however, is the change in loudness (abnormal loudness) and dynamics that change with each frequency. In the case of hearing impairment, not only does the hearing threshold increase, but the sensitivity to loud sounds also changes.
In addition, this change is often frequency dependent. Therefore, it is not simply a matter of volume replacement per frequency, as the ratio between soft and loud sounds may vary in the patient’s sound spectrum. It is also important to protect residual hearing. Thus, although the amplified sounds need to be amplified, it even must be limited to varying degrees throughout the spectrum.
Which device is suitable for me?
The hearing aid transmits the amplified sound to the ear canal. The device can be of various sizes, shapes, and locations based on the anatomical shape of the ear, the required amplification, and other considerations.

If the tinnitus is persistent, noise-generating devices may be helpful.
These devices are tailored for you after precise custom ear molds of your ear canal. They are shaped like hearing aids and emit a sound to the ear similar to the calm shattering of the sea. They distract you from torturous tinnitus and serve as a useful adjunct to retuning therapy (TRT – Tinnitus Retrainging Teraphy).
Their enhanced digital versions have several types of preset soundscapes.
The earmold carries the sound of hearing aids worn behind the ear into the ear canal. It is made individually based on the earmold, so it is comfortable and does not slip out of the ear. It can be made of several materials and formats, considering the anatomy of the ear and the degree of hearing loss.
The earmolds are an acoustically tuned system. They have paramount importance to achieve an optimal hearing experience.
With a lightweight design and ventilation holes, we try to make them as comfortable as possible for the wearer.
