Hearing aids are like advanced personal hearing computers. These fully digital hearing aids offer great fitting capabilities and automatically adjust to sounds and speech. Our hearing care professionals are fully trained to work with you to select the most appropriate product based on your hearing loss, your lifestyle and your budget. They can fit any product from the most basic to the most technologically advanced hearing aid.
Receiver in the Canal (RIC) technology is the main Hearing Aid we dispense. They are more comfortable, acoustically optimal, and come in a rechargeable format.
There are many styles of hearing aids to satisfy a person's wants and needs, but some styles can be more appropriate depending on the individual.
In guiding our patients towards the right hearing aids, we take care consideration to support the patient in making an optimal decision. The shape, size and contours of the ear and ear canal have their own considerations. Ultimately, the degree of hearing loss (how much increased volume is needed at different frequencies) may necessitate one style of hearing aid over another. Our audiologist will work with you to make the best determination.
Many people want their aids to be as discreet as possible. Fortunately, hearing aids have shrunk considerably, thereby meeting the need for discretion with the optimal hearing outcome desired.
There is also the important question of budget to consider. Ultimately, the audiologist will accommodate all factors to prescribe a hearing aid that best suits a patients auditory needs and lifestyle.
