Hearing Aids Background Noise Reduction Technology

Having conversations in loud environments can be challenging for anyone, and especially people with hearing loss. Speech sounds appear muffled and soft. Many people struggle to hear what others say to them while communicating in crowded areas, such as restaurants, parties, and public transportation.

Filtering out background noise is complicated when experiencing hearing loss. Although hearing aids can solve the problem, everyday noises that never bothered you before can sometimes be overwhelming.

Fortunately, multiple types of hearing aids with noise cancellation features allow wearers to reduce background noise. At hear.com, we offer a variety of hearing aids to suit your unique needs. Take our quiz to find out if you qualify for a risk-free hearing aid trial.

Why Is Background Noise a Problem?

Background noise causes a range of problems for people with hearing loss. Spending time in noisy environments can be frustrating and stressful. Human ears receive and process surrounding noises coming from all different directions. It can be distracting and challenging to communicate when environmental noises, such as traffic, loud music, and other sounds are around you.

Hearing Aids Technology

Advanced technology has made hearing aids more effective in a wide variety of environments and at different noise levels. Although all hearing aids process sound, newer brands on the market have a range of features that can decrease the volume of surrounding noises and sounds. While they might not cancel background noise entirely, they can make it easier to hear someone talking to you despite environmental sounds.

An automatic system increases the volume of soft speech and lowers the volume of loud noises. This provides the wearer’s desired outcome in multiple types of environments without the need to change the settings on the hearing aid manually.

Some newer hearing aids also come with artificial intelligence. This allows the device to process sound by accessing a deep neural network. The hearing aids can automatically switch to predetermined settings and preferences upon detecting specific sound environments.

How Background Noise Reduction in Hearing Aids Work

Modulation-based systems analyze speech and noise levels in any environment. Mechanisms in these systems can differentiate between the signals speech and noise give off and alter the output.

The system instantly decreases the volume of loud noises, so the wearer understands speech better when it detects speech and loud noise signals. When the system detects loud noises but no speech signals, it automatically decreases the volume so the wearer can enjoy a more comfortable hearing level.

Noise reduction systems adjust sound at different frequency bands. Anyone wearing background noise hearing aids can converse with others more easily while the system automatically turns up speech frequencies and turns down frequencies containing loud noises.

Technology continues to change and improve. Anyone with hearing loss can now benefit from a more refined noise reduction system. Newer hearing aids contain multiple channels or bands that function depending on the frequencies of noise and speech it processes. The noise reduction system can work within each separate channel for targeted noise reduction responses.

When you have hearing loss, it’s crucial to choose a hearing aid with features such as:

  • Digital noise reduction – The digital noise reduction system analyzes and detects unwanted noise. It reduces the level of unwanted background or environmental noise, so listening is more comfortable.

  • Impulse noise reduction – Impulse noise reduction systems improve the wearer’s comfort while listening to the sounds around them. The system detects temporary but loud noises, such as rattling dishes or typing on a keyboard, and instantly softens them.

  • Wind noise reduction – Wind noise reduction is beneficial for anyone who likes spending time outdoors. Whether golfing, boating, or walking outside, this system detects wind and reduces or avoids the amplification of the noise.
