HEARING AID STYLES
Choosing the right hearing aids for your individual needs comes down to a number of issues: your hearing loss, the features and look you prefer and your lifestyle. There are many products from which to choose, each with its own unique features and advantages. It’s not a case of what’s the best style of hearing aid, more what’s the best solution for you.
In-the-ear hearing aids
In-the-ear hearing aids are custom made to fit securely in your outer ear, ensuring optimum performance and comfort. They provide sufficient space for extra options such as directional microphones or telecoil switches. They are suitable for mild to severe hearing losses.
In-the-canal hearing aids
In-the-canal hearing aids are custom made to fit inside your ear canal, making them very discreet. Many people appreciate the balance they offer – small enough for some of the benefits of the CIC aid, they provide enough room to fit additional options and are suitable for mild to moderate losses.
Completely-in-the-canal hearing aids
Completely-in-the-canal hearing aids are custom made to fit deeply inside your ear canal, making them almost invisible. The advantages include cosmetic appeal and excellent sound quality. These instruments are suitable for mild to moderate hearing losses.
On-the-ear insutruments/hearing aids
On-the-ear instruments offer a lightweight, virtually unseen alternative to in the ear aids. Available as open fit aids or receiver in canal they are an option for people with mild hearing loss.
