The difference between a basic digital hearing aid and a modern model is like night and day. Patients can finally get away from problematic manual adjustments and enter the new age. Newer models adapt to the environment they are in, requiring no input from the user. Hear for You Hearing & Balance Center keeps up with the latest technology in the industry so that customers only have the best.
Styles of Hearing Aids
Not all hearing aids are bulky; some are actually invisible with the right style. Hearing aid styles will be selected for the patient based on their hearing loss, lifestyle and budget needs. At Hear for You Hearing & Balance Center we offer the following hearing aids styles, with a variety of customization options:
- In the ear (ITE)
- Invisible in canal (IIC)
- Completely in canal (CIC)
- In the canal (ITC)
- In the ear (ITE)
- Behind the ear (BTE)
- Receiver in the ear (RITE)
Occupations and sports may require a custom type of hearing protection. Just like styles, there are many to choose from based on the activity. Sports, industrial, everyday use and even sleeping protection is available when needed. They all have a different function so that your hearing is enhanced, protected and overall better for your current environment. Here are the main protection types to choose from:
- Hunting – Protects against sudden loud noises from guns
