It can be hard to keep up with technology moving as fast as it does. We were first notified of this breakthrough product last summer and have kept a close eye out for its release.
The time has come for us to explore this product to its fullest and see if it can help you or your loved ones who might be considering this first step into their hearing health journey.
The release of the Jabra Enhance Plus signifies a change in the entire hearing healthcare industry as more companies look to develop products to reach a wider range of people yet to address hearing challenges.
The Jabra Enhance Plus is being marketed as a 3-in-1 product that can help with hearing loss, music, and phone calls.
I want to dive into who these devices are for and how they work to help those in our Greater Houston communities to better understand the hearing care options now available to them.
Who Is The Jabra Enhance Plus For?
The people that the Jabra Enhance Plus is most likely to appeal to are a younger person or someone who has a mild-moderately perceived hearing loss.
Someone who doesn’t have enough hearing loss to take full advantage of prescription hearing aids.
They may struggle in only a few situations during the day. Primarily, they are aimed at someone a little tech-savvy and who likes the idea of a device that looks and works like a set of wireless in-the-ear headphones.
A considerable benefit of the Jabra Enhance Plus is its similarities to technology that most of us already use.
It connects easily to your phone or TV, so if you’ve used Bluetooth before, this will be a breeze for you.
Are These Better Than Prescription Hearing Aids?
Although prescription hearing aids and the Jabra Enhance Plus will soon both be in the category of hearing aids – these devices cannot be compared.
I think the verdict is still out on whether this is an important product. It remains to be seen if the public will accept it. A product like this aims to get people better hearing assistance earlier on.
We know that people wait almost a decade past to get help. We know that there are severe medical and social issues that this delay can cause. This product will hopefully cut down that time delay.
This product aims to ease the transition from having no help with your hearing to comfortably wearing prescription hearing aids without any discomfort.
Benefits Of The Jabra Enhance Plus
Self-Fitting – Self-fitting means you have control of the fitting, adjustments, and settings. There is a Jabra app that the patient sets up and then can adjust what they hear. The audiologist does not have software to specifically programme the device like they would with prescription hearing aids. The hearing test taken through the Jabra app identifies the hearing loss and programs the settings to that result.
Reduce Background Noise – If you have trouble in busy restaurants, these will help in those settings specifically. This feature is something new that only prescription hearing aids used to offer.
Extended Battery Life – 10 hours of battery on a full charge. When using the carry case, you get even more – up to 30 hours of battery rechargeability.
Added Comfort – EarGels in three sizes for a secure and comfortable fit. These inserts conform to the unique curvatures of your ear. The longer you wear them at first, the better the fit will be.
Connects To Other Devices – Rich and clear sound for music and phone calls (just as you would expect from Jabra).
On The Fence About Getting Hearing Help?
I can’t make you choose better hearing.
Research shows that good hearing has significant benefits to our physical and mental health, but you must want to hear better. If you’re having issues, we can help you on that journey.
Someone who refuses to wear hearing aids because they have a mild-moderate hearing loss, which affects them in limited situations, would be a candidate for this device.
These patients may also like the idea of the wireless streaming of music and phone calls, plus a slight boost in amplification for conversations.
