An analog hearing aid is a non-digital device. Though it helps in amplifying the sound, the device cannot distinguish between noise and sound. So, if you are talking to someone in a busy street or a restaurant, it even picks up the unwanted noise in the background and thus the conversation is not clear.
In a digital aid, the chip converts any type of signal into binary numbers and breaks down the sound waves before amplification. In simple words, the chip inside the device continuously adjusts the sound to make it clear; it boosts the quality of the sound. The Digital Hearing Aids can differentiate between Oscillating sound -which is the normal speech and Steady-noise, which are the sounds of machinery, traffic and crowds. The device reduces the Steady-noise to make the listening better and comfortable in all circumstances.
