Which Hearing Aid Is Right for Me?

There are so many different types of hearing aids available, it can be difficult to decide which type is right for you. When you are looking at different hearing aid styles, it is important to take into consideration price, comfort, special features, size, and how they sit in your ear. To help you in the decision-making process, below are some of the most common types of hearing aid styles available.

Behind-the-Ear

Behind the ear is a discrete device that sits behind the ear, gently contoured to follow the curve of the ear. It is best suited for moderate to severe hearing loss and is probably one of the more common types of hearing aids on the market.

Completely-in-Canal

Hearing aids that fit completely in the ear canal are almost completely undetectable. They are used for a wide range of hearing loss, from mild to moderately severe. These tiny hearing aids are custom made for the wearer.

In-the-Canal

This hearing aid is rather small and discrete. It sits in the canal but not all the way. It is made for mild to mildly severe hearing loss and is custom made for the wearer. Most people won’t even notice that it is there.

In-the-Ear

This hearing aid sits in the ear but not in the canal. It is a little larger than some of the other types, but it is a popular choice for those with mild to severe hearing loss. It is custom made for the wearer and has several colors available.

“Invisible” Hearing Aids

These tiny devices are virtually invisible. They fit inside the ear and amplify sound, making it easier for the wearer to hear. They are easy to remove and are designed for people who are using a hearing aid for the first time. Upon the first visit, they are ready to wear.

Receiver-in-the-Canal

This is a small hearing aid that fits discreetly behind the ear while the receiver fits in the ear canal. It is virtually invisible and is easy to adjust. These hearing aids are made for mild to severe hearing loss.
