While we do currently offer several styles and colors of hearing devices, our audiologist will choose the style of hearing aid best matched to address your personal hearing needs.

Our staff expertly fits and programs your new hearing aids to meet the demands of your active lifestyle, your hearing needs, and your budget.

We use the results of your hearing evaluations, as well as the information you’ve provided regarding your unique listening challenges, lifestyle and communication needs, and budget restraints to find the right hearing aid style and technology for you.

While we do currently offer several styles and colors of hearing devices, our audiologist will choose the style of hearing aid best matched to address your personal hearing needs.

Behind-the-Ear (BTE):

BTE devices provide stronger amplification than smaller devices and are appropriate for more severe cases of hearing loss. The instruments are attached to a custom-made earmold, which then channels sound into the ear canal. There are a variety of color options available to match skin or hair color.

Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC):

CICs are the smallest type of hearing device available. The components of these instruments are housed within a small case that fits far into the ear canal. These aids are custom-made for each ear, but CICs aren’t for everyone. CICs are ideal for those with large enough ear canals to accommodate the instruments. Because of their size, they require good manual dexterity for care and battery replacements. CICs are not recommended for people with severe hearing loss.

Full shell In-the-Ear (ITE):

The full shell ITEs can help with a wide range of hearing losses. Their larger size allows them to provide more sound amplification and features such as a manual or automatic telephone switch. Their size also makes them easier to handle and maintain.

Receiver-in-the-Ear (RITE):

RITE instruments combine the cosmetic appeal of ITEs with the amplification of BTEs, making them ideal for enhancing speech without bringing attention to themselves. These devices also allow the ear canal to remain open, which helps avoid any “plugged up” sensation.

Half shell In-the-Ear (ITE):

The half shell style has the room to offer all of the features provided with the full shell instruments, but in a smaller package. They can be used to treat a wide range of hearing losses.

In-the-Canal (ITC):

Although they’re slightly bigger, ITC aids fit far into the ear canal like CICs. They can be used for mild to moderate hearing losses.
