What are the differences between analog and digital hearing aids?
In principle, a distinction is made between analogue and digital hearing instruments. Most of the new hearing aids are digital. The only difference between a digital and an analog prosthesis is the signal processing.
Analog hearing instruments pick up signals from our environment. These are amplified via the loudspeaker. You can neither filter nor reduce noise.
Digital hearing instruments convert sound into electronic information. Only the main signals are amplified and transmitted. High ambient noise is reduced. This makes it easier to hear in a noisy environment. The prosthesis can be adapted to individual needs and is smaller than the analog models. In addition, digital hearing instruments provide better sound quality and clearer speech understanding. Listening then becomes easier.
What are the differences between closed-ended and open-ended prostheses?
In terms of hearing system shapes, a distinction is made between closed-ended and open-ended hearing aids. An open tip means that sound waves can continue to reach the eardrum naturally. The open tip is found on BTE prostheses. The earphone tube and earphone are fixed in the outer ear canal. This type of earmold provides a more natural hearing experience because the audible sounds are not overamplified. In addition, the open earmold allows for better ventilation of the ear canal.
On closed-tip prostheses, the outer ear canal is largely blocked by an earmold or an in-the-ear prosthesis in the canal. This does not mean that your ear is no longer ventilated. Thanks to the custom adaptation of the tip, it fits better in the ear and guarantees a more direct transmission. This allows better use of the full power spectrum of the hearing instrument. A closed-ended hearing aid is also more flexible and can be used for different types of hearing problems.
