A Feedback Manager is used to keep a hearing aid from whistling or squealing when it is properly seated in the ear.

Noise Reduction helps to reduce surrounding background noise so that the user can better hear speech in a noisy place.

Directional Microphones also help in background noise by focusing on speech in front of the listener.

Multiple program settings allow a user to push a button on the hearing aid to change the function for different situations, e.g. listening in calm, listening in background noise, listening to music, or talking on the phone.

Automatic processing can survey the situation and have the hearing aid adapt to various situations.

Ear-to-Ear Communication allows one to share data or the audio signal with the other hearing aid.

Wireless Connectivity, along with Wireless Accessories, allow the hearing aid(s) to receive audio input from a blue-tooth enabled phone or device, a television, or other audio sources. This feature turns your hearing aids into a customized set of earphones for your listening ease.
