NEW! hear.com’s most powerful devices yet: the 2024 IX hearing aids.

Hearing Aids Speech Clarity Technology

If you or someone you know has hearing loss, the inability to understand speech is most likely one of the biggest pain points. When you’re in noisier environments, such as family get-togethers and restaurants, it can be hard to keep up with the conversation when background noise interferes with the clarity of speech.

The good news is you can improve speech clarity with the right hearing aids. However, not all hearing aids are made equal. It's important to choose the right ones for your individual needs, as no two ears are alike. Hearing each and every word is possible when you wear devices that are designed for your specific hearing loss and have the right technology.

Hearing aids Speech Clarity Technology

When it comes to better speech clarity, modern hearing aids have come a long way in the past couple of decades. From watching TV and talking on the phone to more challenging listening environments out in public, major advancements have been made to improve the understanding of speech in all environments.

Here are a handful of speech-enhancing technologies that have been developed specifically to optimize speech clarity.

  • Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms can automatically detect and separate speech from background noise.
  • Directional microphones help hearing aid wearers focus on sounds coming from the front, while at the same time reducing sounds from other directions.
  • Noise reduction algorithms identify and work to reduce background noise.
  • Speech enhancement algorithms amplify specific speech frequencies or features — such as consonant sounds. For example, hear.com’s IX hearing aid come equipped with a special Speech Focus mode that boosts speech to an incredibly clear level.
  • Feedback management works to suppress and prevent feedback that can occur from the hearing aid speaker
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms allow hearing aids to automatically adapt to your environment in real time. With AI, hearing aids can continue to learn and adapt to your listening preferences and habits over time to improve your hearing experience.

Speech Focus and Clarity

Recently, Hear.com audiologists partnered with sound engineers from Signia — one of the largest and well known hearing aid manufacturers — to find a solution that would help people overcome speech clarity challenges. Known as Speech Focus, this popular hearing aid feature amplifies high-pitched frequencies of voice and speech, rather than trying to balance speech with noise like other hearing aids do. It features incredibly narrow sound directionality, allowing you to be laser-focused on speech you need and want to hear.

This special speech-enhancing feature is only found in the IX hearing aid line, including the Go IX — one of the best hearing aids for speech clarity. By activating it in the app with just one tap, your hearing aids will be 100% focused on speech. No program in any other device has been able to replicate this feature.
