I-Phone/Android connectivity

Rechargeable battery

Changing hearing aid batteries is one of the common concerns of hearing aid users. Most hearing aids on the market run on disposable zinc-air batteries. These zinc air battery lasts between 2 to 12 days on average and requires users to change the batteries manually. This can pose difficulty especially to users with dexterity and vision issues.

Since the introduction of rechargeable hearing aids, they have been one of the more a popular choice among hearing aid users today. They are convenient, eco-friendly, and users no longer have to carry spare batteries. Also, the long-term costs of a rechargeable hearing aid is equal to the costs of a hearing aid which runs on disposable batteries.

Among all the rechargeable options we highly recommend Phonak’s rechargeable hearing aids as they are the quickest charging, longest lasting rechargeable hearing aids on the market. In fact, they give you 24 hours* of hearing with a simple 3-hour charge. While a 30-minute charge can give up to 6 hours of full performance. Phonak also provides its users a wide variety of charging options including a power pack for travel purposes.

IP rating

IP (or Ingress Protection) ratings gives a hearing aid or sound processor user information on the degree of protection their hearing instrument has against solids such as fingers, dust and water from getting into the internal electrical components.

The first digit in the IP rating represents the degree of protection against solids while the second digit represents protection against water. The higher the number, the better the protection.

For example, for hearing aids with IP56 rating:

IP

5

6

Ingress Protection Solid protection:

Rating of 5 means instrument is dust protected but there is a low chance of dust entering the instrument.

Water protection:

Rating of 6 means instrument is protected against water jets from any angle for 3 minutes.

And if a hearing aids has a IP68 rating:

IP

6

8

Ingress Protection Solid protection:

Rating of 6 means instrument is completely dust-proof

Water protection:

Rating of 8 means instrument is water resistant and protected against low pressure jets and water immersion 1 metre deep for up to 40 minutes

All modern good quality hearing aids with usually carry a minimum rating of IP57 to IP68. Here are some of hearLIFE’s recommend hearing aid models with good durability:

Remote hearing aid programming

The average hearing aid user today makes a minimum of 3 to 7 follow up visits to the audiologists to have their hearing aids adjusted to optimum settings. However, for busy travellers or users who visit Singapore for medical tourism making frequent trips to the audiologist may not be a possible option.

ReSound LiNX 3D has remote fine-tuning capabilities which allows the users’ hearing aids to be connected to their audiologist no matter where were they are. With the installation of an easy ReSound Smart 3D app on to their device, users are able to save time on trips to the audiology clinic an focus on other priorities.
