Crystal Vision and Better Hearing in Abbotsford is looking for 25 people to evaluate advanced hearing aid technology that takes active lifestyles into consideration.

Hearing office evaluating candidates to test the latest, most advanced hearing aid

Do you experience difficulty hearing in noisy environments? Crystal Vision and Better Hearing is looking for 25 people with hearing loss to evaluate the latest, most advanced hearing aid technology.

The new digital hearing aid became available this month at the family-owned and operated optical and hearing office in Abbotsford.

Smaller than a raspberry, Operations Manager Julie Stelmack said the discreet new hearing aid offers powerful, cutting-edge features.

“If you are sitting at a restaurant, for example, this hearing aid focuses on separating surrounding sounds, so you can hear the person who is actually talking to you, even if that person is behind you,” she said. “It is really good at preventing confusion or having to ask someone to repeat themselves.”

The new hearing aid also has acoustic-motion sensors that enable you to hear clearly wherever you go, such as on a walk with friends in the park.

While some older hearing aids were built on the assumption that the wearer would be stationary, Stelmack said these new hearing aids take active lifestyle into consideration.

“You can move freely and still hear what’s important,” she said.

Everything sounds natural, too, because you hear it at the correct volume and can recognize from which direction each sound is coming from.

For times when you would like to take a break, this new, rechargeable hearing aid also has you covered. It’s Bluetooth compatible, so you can connect it to your television.

“Everyone else can have the volume on the T.V. really low, but you can raise the volume in your own hearing aid so it’s not affecting the people around you,” she said, adding that it also connects to telephones.

If you want to hear the difference the product makes for yourself, call Crystal Vision and Better Hearing at 604-776-3937 to schedule a free hearing test and determine your candidacy.

“The full hearing evaluation takes about one hour,” Stelmack said, adding that they are currently selecting candidates. “We do a series of tests that include tone, tympanometry, air conduction, bone conduction and word discrimination.”

Selected participants will be given a free in-office demonstration of the hearing aid and its accessories, and the opportunity to evaluate it for 30 days, risk-free.

“After the 30 days, the participants then come back and we ask them for their input,” she said.

The participants also receive a $100 Crystal Vision gift card that can be used towards their next vision purchase.

Crystal Vision and Better Hearing has offices in Chilliwack, Maple Ridge, White Rock and Abbotsford. The Abbotsford office is located at 2033 Abbotsford Way. Visit them online at www.cvoh.ca to learn more.
