Smart Hearing Aids
The smart hearing technology developed by Sivantos for Siemens is designed to automatically zero in on a person's speech while minimizing background noise. The wearable devices aim to quiet background noise, synchronize hearing aids, and connect wirelessly to a smartphone. The smart hearing aids have FDA approval and are on the market in the US. While cost varies depending on the hearing care provider selling the device, they can range from approximately $2,000 to $3,000. However, Siemens has released a new line of smart hearing aids that feature some of the higher-end features but at a lower price point, ranging from $1,000 to $2,000.
