It’s hard to believe we’re already wrapping up 2017! As we get ready for all the great opportunities 2018 has in store for us, we wanted to create a roundup of the best hearing aids of 2017. In the world of hearing aids, 2017 was a year of impressive and innovative technology as well as sleeker, more discreet designs. Take a look at this list of some of the most awesome hearing aids to have come out this year.

Best Hearing Aids of 2017 for Smartphone Lovers

iPhone – Signia Pure Nx - Hearing aids made specifically compatible for iPhones have been on the market for quite some time, but this great new addition from 2017 is worth discussing.

Better late than never, Signia unveiled their first truly Made for iPhone hearing aids in May of this year, the Signia Pure 13 Nx. Since then, Signia released two more hearing aids in this line, the Pure 312 Nx and the Motion 13 Nx. This line boasts a lot of industry firsts, which is why it made this list. Amongst many other cool features, the Pure 312 Nx boasts Own Voice Processing (OVP) making the wearer’s own voice sound as natural as possible. It does this by processing the wearer’s own voice independently from other voices or sounds around them. The Pure Nx also has improved directional microphones, meaning wearers can amplify voices by focusing on them. On top of all the great features, the Signia Pure Nx line also has a 68 IP rating, making it resistant to moisture and dust and a great choice for those with active lifestyles.

Android or Simple Phones – Phonak Audeo B-Direct - Believe it or not, the most popular smartphone in the world is actually Android. In fact, 4 out of 5 smartphones in the world are Androids.

The Audeo B-Direct makes truly hands free calling a reality with direct streaming without any extra technology. The ringing of the phone is heard directly in the hearing aids and wearers can accept the call and begin the conversation immediately, without even picking up the phone. These hearing aids also double as wireless TV headphones and are also packed with all the other awesome features you would expect from a Phonak hearing aid.

Best Rechargeable Hearing Aid of 2017

Unitron Stride MR and Moxi Fit R – Unitron released their rechargeable options, that still uses their groundbreaking Intelligent SoundCore Technology. The SoundCore Technology was created to focus on conversations by surveying the wearer’s environment quickly and making fluid and automatic adjustments to ensure the listener is able to actively participate in all conversations. The Moxi line includes two of the smallest Receiver in Canal (RIC) hearing aids available. The Moxi Fit is the smallest rechargeable hearing aid on the market. These hearing aids are good to go for a full 24 hours after only a 5-7 hour charge. Forgot to charge overnight? No worries. At any time wearers can conveniently swap rechargeable batteries for disposable ones, ensuring hearing aids are never dead at inconvenient times.

Most Discreet Hearing Aid of 2017

Phonak Virto B-Titanium Invisible Hearing Aids – Virto B hearing aids break many barriers in hearing aid technology. These Completely-in-canal (CIC) hearing aids use 1600 biometric points to create completely custom aids to perfectly fit your ear and canal. These biometric data points not only make a custom fit, but they also play on your ear’s natural hearing abilities, allowing your hearing aids to better understand where sounds are coming from and to create a completely natural listening experience. The hearing aids come in 6 unique styles and many colors – making them as discreet as possible.
