A Different Experience Over the years, we’ve been involved in many studies looking at various aspects of audiology and technology. In some, we’ve offered advice on new hearing aid technology in development, in others, how the special software we rely on integrates with the hearing aids we fit, and whether new features will be useful for audiologists and clinicians around...August 17, 2023
