Hearing Aid Technology
The most suitable hearing aid for you is determined based on your degree of hearing loss and your lifestyle. After we conduct a thorough hearing evaluation, we can help to fit you with the best option available to you. Here are some examples of the types of hearing aids we have to offer:
Open fit (RIC)
Open Fit hearing aids are small devices placed behind the ear with a slim tube attached to the device and inserted down the ear canal. This style is good for people with a high frequency hearing loss or mild to moderate hearing loss. They help to hear better in noisy situations.
These hearing aids sit comfortably behind your ear while sound passes down a tube to a customized earmold that fits securely into your ear. Because they are larger, BTEs can accommodate bigger batteries for longer life and larger amplifiers. These hearing aids are used by individuals of all ages for mild to profound hearing loss.
ITC hearing aids are custom-made to fit almost entirely inside your ear canal, making them difficult to notice. ITCs are suitable for mild to moderately-severe hearing losses.
CIC hearing aids fit deep inside your ear canal so that they’re practically invisible. Benefits include cosmetic appeal, reduced feedback and excellent sound quality. CICs are suitable for mild to moderately-severe hearing losses.
