Most hearing aids have automatic gain compression (to limit max SPL to the eardrum) and different attack / release time in the compression. Nowadays they pack a small processor into the hearing aid so signal processing is a lot better. However, the hearing aid receiver and its driver has to all operate within a 1.4V hearing aid battery limit and still is just as crappy sounding as ever.

Although I have to say I keep teasing my wife that the hearing aid manufacturer's life and the audiologist's job will be changing. What with the convenient and constantly improving processing power of the mobile phones, proliferation and even hipness of wireless ear pieces plus popularity of ear pieces with stage performers, the hearing aid is going to be embedded into mobile phones. There I see chances of doing something relatively hi fi and being able to mask some types of tinnitus.

When I was first given mine by the audiologist he explained how there might be a slight echo due to the delay in the processing of the high frequencies he said most people didn't notice it, I tried them and it was very noticeable and quite off putting. I don't wear them much usually just around the house and sometimes in company or to watch the television, they're fine for speech of course that is the primary function, hopelessly for music and they are aware of it. These are National Health ones though so.............
