Assistive listening devices (ALDs)
Assistive listening devices (ALDs) are designed to help ease communication and improve quality of life for those with hearing loss. Essentially, they are all designed to improve the signal-to-noise ratio, meaning they amplify desired sound while minimizing background noise. Some ALDs are designed to work with hearing aids, while others stand alone for when hearing aids are not worn. At Desert Valley Audiology, we offer a range of ALDs for all needs. Some work with hearing aids, or with brand-specific hearing aids (usually called “accessories”).
