Hearing Aid Styles
Open fit – are small devices placed behind the ear with a slim tube attached to the device and inserted down the ear canal. They are non-occluding. This style is good for people with a high-frequency hearing loss or mild to moderate hearing loss. They help you hear better when background noise is present.
Behind-the-ear (BTE) – sit comfortably behind your ear while amplified sound passes down a tube to a customized ear mould that fits securely into your ear. Because they are larger, BTEs can accommodate bigger batteries for longer life and larger amplifiers for maximum amplification. BTEs are suitable for mild to profound hearing losses.
In-the-ear (ITE) – are custom-made to fit securely in your outer ear, ensuring optimum performance and maximum comfort. ITEs are suitable for mild to severe hearing losses.
In-the-canal (ITC) – 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.
Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) – 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.
Digital Hearing Aids
Digital hearing aids can do a lot more for the user than an analogue device. It can receive sound and digitize it prior to amplification. The advent of technology today is surging through all spheres of life, and no doubt, it is transforming the hearing aids market. The aids employ digital signal processing and directional microphones. These new hearing aids provide first-rate sound quality and have been shown to provide significant benefits in difficult listening situations. These hearing aids contain a computer chip and are set by our hearing aid specialist to match your hearing loss using a computer.
