Hearing Aids

What type of hearing aid is for you?

It is no secret that hearing aids have been an ever-evolving product since their arrival. They are now mini super-computers in your ear that look good and are discreet. There is a type of hearing aid to suit every lifestyle and your Audiologist will be able to help you decide which is best suited to you.


The Categories of Hearing Aid:

  • In-the-ear (ITE)hearing aids are designed to be discrete and are suitable for any hearing loss. These are one of the most popular options for people with a hearing loss.
  • Behind-the-ear (BTE)hearing aids sit in a case behind the ear and generally use a thin tube that connects to the ear canal. These devices are more visible than the ITE version.
  • Completely-in-canal (CIC)hearing aids are the smallest and most discreet hearing aids – they fit entirely in your ear canal. Because of this they are virtually invisible and suitable for people with mild to moderate hearing loss. Because of how they fit into your ear, they are very small which means if you have any dexterity issues, these probably aren’t the aids for you.
  • In-the-canal (ITC)hearing aids also fit entirely in the ear making them another discrete option. They fit inside your outer ear which makes them easier to position and remove than CIC aids. As they are a little larger than CIC aids, they can have volume control buttons on too.

No matter which type of hearing aid you go for, they are all designed to help you hear better. The computer carries sounds from the environment into your ear and adjusts them so they are clearer. It does this by filtering out the background noises.


Features of hearing aids

You might want to think about some of the features the aids have when making your selection. Most hearing aids are able to connect with other devices in your home, such as your tablet and TV, by using Bluetooth technology. There are also various accessories you can purchase to accompany your aids to make your experience even better, such as a TV Connector or a remote control for your aids. It is always best to discuss these options with your Audiologist.
