Hearing Aid Technology

Hearing aids contain digital circuits that allow the audiologist to program the hearing aid based on the hearing loss, and the patient's perception of sound, and make modifications based on the environments the patient encounters.

Digital circuitry allows the hearing aid to amplify soft sounds more than loud sounds while filtering out background noise in noisy environments. Digital noise reduction technology allows the hearing aid to monitor your listening environments and reduce background noise while focusing in on speech.

Our ENT clinic in Wausau offers three levels of hearing aid technology which include a basic technology level, mid-level technology, and premium technology.


Three Levels of Hearing Aids

  • Basic technology level hearing aids assist in common listening environments such as one-on-one conversations, watching television, and in restaurants.


  • Mid-level technology provides advanced technology for hearing assistance in more diverse and challenging listening environments such as meetings, church, music, restaurants, and social environments.


  • Premium technology level provides the ultimate technology to provide hearing assistance in complex listening environments such as social gatherings, the mall, hearing conversations taking place in the backseat of cars, and in crowds.

ENT & Allergy Associates now offers Cochlear Implant Surgery

Audiologist in Wausau installing a cochlear implant.

What is a cochlear implant?

A cochlear implant is a medical device that can partially restore hearing. A cochlear implant works by directly stimulating the auditory nerve to deliver a sense of sound.

Cochlear implants work by processing sound signals and transmitting them to a receiver that is implanted behind the ear. The receiver will then transfer the signals to electrodes implanted in the inner ear. These signals stimulate the auditory nerve, which directs the signals to the brain. The brain will translate the signals as sounds to help you hear.
