LISTEN UP: Helen Mavrodis and her Total Hearing and Health team are ready to help their clients discover the world of hearing aid technology.

Helen Mavrodis from Total Hearing and Health has been in the family business for more than five years - and the hearing aid industry for more than 10 - and is still excited by the technology on offer.

The latest models offer styles and features that are tailored to suit a range of circumstances.

"Versatile hearing aids deliver sound quality that can make it easier to hear people who are wearing face masks or are social distancing," Ms Mavrodis said.

And now with the popularity of rechargeable hearing aids, users no longer have to deal with disposal of batteries or the challenges that changing batteries can create for people with dexterity issues.

"No matter how well a hearing aid is programmed, at some point we will all encounter situations where the acoustic environment is unpredictable or challenging," Ms Mavrodis said.

"The latest hearing aids have the ability to make instant acoustic changes when you need it."

One of the popular features is the connectivity to smartphones. There are models of hearing aids that connect to both android and iPhone models.

The related phone apps give the wearer full control over volume and memory switching and there's even a GPS or "find my phone" feature.

Other features in hearing aids can include fall detection and alerts, real time language translators, voice commands and fitness trackers.

Due to all the features and reliability, hearing aids are more likely to be worn longer due to their multi-functional nature, and people are less likely to leave them behind during daily activities.

"Never before in the industry have we seen such technological advances," Ms Mavrodis said.

"At Total Hearing and Health we are only too happy to have a client trial any of these hearing aids to experience the features appropriate to their lifestyle.

"At the same time, it gives us a chance to learn from the person's feedback."

Total Hearing and Health is at 265 George Street, Windsor.
