HEARING AIDS

Helping You Find Your Perfect Hearing Aids

So, your ears are not what they used to be. You want to experience better hearing to boost your ability to fully engage in the world around you and to feel confident once again when entering conversational situations. For this, you may require hearing aids.

Now, we know that the idea of having to wear a hearing aid can be a bit daunting at first. When confronted with the reality that you might need a hearing aid, many of us still imagine the big, clunky, plastic, notoriously unreliable devices from years gone by. But fear not – hearing aid technology has surged forwards in the last decade.

The cumbersome models of the past have been replaced by sleek, discreet, powerful, and reliable aids. There are now so many solutions to choose from and there is something on the market to fit every requirement, budget, and lifestyle. It could even be argued that some pieces enhance your hearing beyond the capabilities of natural aural ability, offering advanced features such as night modes, app controls, and Bluetooth device connectivity.

We are proud to say that we have access to a diverse selection of the most popular and up-to-date hearing aids.

The Different Styles of Hearing Aids

Invisible-In-Canal (IIC)

These are ideal if you suffer from mild to moderate hearing loss as they are custom fitted as well as coming in a choice of colors. They’re unique as they’re inserted deeper into the ear canal, so depending on your ear, they’re often invisible when worn, which is a huge plus for the style-conscious wearer.

Completely-In-Canal (CIC) 

Unlike the IICs, these aids are comfortably inserted and extracted from your ear, with the small “handle” peeping out the side. They are custom-made and mostly invisible, as well as coming in a range of colors to match the skin-tone of your inner ear. They’re the perfect choice if you have mild to moderate hearing loss.

In-The-Canal (ITC) 
If you have mild to mildly severe hearing loss, then you will benefit from these ITC hearing aids because of their custom-fit, skin-match design, and simplicity to insert and extract. Easily disguised as part of your natural ear, these aids are the perfect option if your hearing is diminishing at a steady pace.
In-The-Ear (ITE)

Mildly severe to severe hearing loss patients can benefit from choosing the ITE hearing aids, as these provide maximum hearing coverage and comfort, due to their sleek design that fits perfectly to the outer entrance of your ear. Coming in a range of colors, they’re custom made and can be matched to your skin tone.

Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)

Barely visible when worn, the RIC style is an instrument in which the receiver, or speaker, is inside the ear canal. Thin electrical wires are used instead of a plastic acoustical tube, reducing distortion. RIC hearing aids provide a comfortable, open fit and are perfect for mild to moderate hearing loss.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)
When you think “hearing aid” – the chances are you’re thinking of the BTE design. Usually worn by moderate to severe hearing loss patients, the technology is housed in the casing of these hearing aids, ensuring they rest comfortably behind the ear while the clear plastic acoustical tube sends the amplified sounds into a customized earmold that’s fitted inside the canal. Available in many different colors, they come with easy to use buttons and are highly discreet.
