According to Hearing Review, acoustic feedback “may lead to issues of loudness discomfort, sound annoyance, reduced sound quality, and even reduced speech understanding.”
Feedback happens when hearing aids pick up sounds emitted from the microphone and “feeds back” into itself. In hearing aids of the past, less sophisticated technology meant that feedback was a common problem.
Furthermore, with analog sound, wearers might find themselves adjusting their hearing aids to higher volumes in order to focus on specific sounds. This makes feedback more likely. That uncomfortable, screeching whistling sound is a thing of the past. With super-fast algorithms, modern hearing aids are able to analyze feedback sounds and cancel them out before they occur, thus providing wearers with a more comfortable and realistic listening experience.
