As technology becomes more wireless and integrated, the hearing aid is becoming a more and more important part of people’s lives. These days, hearing aids aren’t just about amplifying the sound around you.
They’re also about controlling which sounds you hear and when. Whether it’s focusing on a particular conversation, being aware of the ambient noise around you, or connecting directly with other wireless technologies such as you computer or television, hearing aids and hearing aid accessories are finding solutions to problems you didn’t even know you had.
At Soundwave Hearing in Calgary, we’re committed to finding the best hearing solutions for our customers. Here’s a list of just a few of the latest developments in hearing aid technology:

And with new processing power that's five times faster, you'll experience music in a whole new way with pure, refined sound quality.
If you’re tired of people asking you to turn down the television, you may want to do some research into the Audéo B-Direct. It easily connects wirelessly to your television and other household technologies so you’ll be able to hear everything without inconveniencing those around you.
Compatible with almost any cochlear implant or hearing aid, the Roger Pen is a new wireless microphone that offers speech understanding despite ambient noise and over significant distances.
