21 Sep Back to Basics: Wind Noise Manager
What is it?
Hearing aid manufacturers are now able to control a peak in the frequency response when wind noise is present blowing over the microphone. This feature has evolved to the point that the wind noise can now be reduced without diminishing the quality of the speech signal. This feature would be recommended to anyone that spends a significant amount of time outdoors.
What does it mean for the user?
This is a very important feature for patients that golf, work outside frequently, or walk frequently. It helps improve comfort and listening ability in an outdoor setting.
