Hearing Aid Styles
With a wide range of technology and features, each hearing aid style is manufactured to meet your needs. With the revolutionary advancements in digital signal processing and sound encoding applications, these products are more intelligible and natural sounding than ever before. We've got everything from basic models like Behind-The-Ear (BTE) or In-The-Canal (ITC) to behind-the-ear devices with directional microphones so you only hear what's going on around you, devices that allow for wireless connectivity via Bluetooth headphones to stream audio content wirelessly, all while providing discreetness in a package smaller than many traditional glasses frames.
Hearing Aid Batteries
Like any technological device, hearing aids run on batteries. Traditionally, most have been powered by tiny "button" type of battery that wearers had to change every few days or weeks. Now though many models come with rechargeable batteries and it's a good idea when choosing which model is best for you to think through the benefits and drawbacks of both types before deciding what works better in your life.
Dr. Hadassah Kupfer, Doctor of Audiology, has access to an extensive line-up of hearing protection products that are not just limited to the common hearing aids. To prevent damage caused by noise exposure and improve your hearing health as much as possible, protect yourself from sound with any one or a combination of these variously priced options in her inventory: ear plugs (which can be made out different materials), custom molded inserts for helmets/earpieces/hearing devices and even electronic "muffs" which have built-in amplifiers to lessen outside sounds while still being able to hear conversations.
