HearLink Elderly Hearing Aids -
A New Era of Assistive Technology

How do they work?

The basic principle of assistive listening devices for the elderly is to receive the surrounding external sounds through a microphone. Once these sounds are captured, the system inside the device will make precise adjustments to convert these sounds into audio that is more suitable for the user. Then, the device further amplifies the adjusted sound through the built-in sound amplifier. Finally, through a component called a receiver inside the device, the amplified sound is transmitted to the ears of the user.

The volume and sound quality clarity not only depends on the quality of the device itself, but are also affected by the user’s physical condition, environment, and usage methods. For example, the auditory sensitivity level of the user who wears the device, the physiological state of the ears, and the noise level of the surrounding environment will directly affect the effectiveness of the product. In addition, how wearers choose to adjust the volume and mode of the assistive device will also have a significant impact on the overall listening experience.

Therefore, the best effect of an assistive device needs to be carefully adjusted according to the individual differences of the users and the surrounding environment, so that the product can function optimally.

The Advantages of Digital Assistive Listening Devices

The advancement of digital assistive listening devices for the elderly continues to evolve with the rapid development of technology. This kind of device uses advanced digital technology to make it more detailed and flexible in sound processing, allowing elderly users to obtain a higher-definition and natural listening effect.

Digital assistive listening devices are equipped with an efficient sound processing system, which allows the device to make more detailed adjustments to sounds of different frequencies. For the processing of high-frequency sounds, this kind of product can amplify more accurately, thereby improving the auditory sensitivity of elderly wearers to high notes.

In addition, digital assistive listening devices for the elderly introduce noise reduction technology to help reduce background noises in the surrounding environment. This feature is important for providing a clearer listening experience in noisy environments. Noise reduction helps filter out unwanted sounds, allowing elderly users to focus more on the sounds they want to hear. The directional microphones equipped with these devices help focus on receiving sounds from specific directions while reducing sounds from other directions. This helps improve the directionality of the device, making it easier for users to hear the sounds they want to hear.

Philips HearLink Models

Today’s assistive listening devices for seniors can be customized to suit individual needs and preferences, including behind-the-ear and in-the-canal styles. These products for seniors are available in a variety of styles, colors, and features. When choosing the right product, you need to consider your personal auditory loss, appearance preferences, functional needs and color preferences. Philips HearLink products also have the ability to connect to a variety of multimedia devices, such as mobile phones, TVs and tablets.

1. “Behind-the-ear” devices:

Behind-the-ear (BTE) assistive listening devices for seniors are worn outside the ear, with the main part hanging behind the upper part of the ear. There are two types: traditional behind-the-ear and receiver-in-the-canal (RITE). In-the-canal devices have speakers placed directly in the ear and are suitable for mild to severe loss of auditory sensitivity.

2. “Ear canal receiver” devices:

Philips HearLink earhook devices have a small and exquisite appearance, which is placed behind the ear and is unnoticeable. The product’s receiver is located in the ear canal and can be equipped with a variety of different receivers for mild to severe auditory loss. In addition, our miniRITE series are available in a variety of colors to easily match your personal style.

Philips HearLink Connectivity

Philips HearLink devices can be connected to a variety of audio devices such as smartphones, TVs, and stereos to transmit sound directly to the product. Through the Philips HearLink app, users can easily manage their assistive listening device, providing a more convenient user experience.
