So you’re in the market for a new hearing aid. Selecting one can be an intimidating task. Let’s take a look at how to choose the right hearing aid for you!
All hearing aids use the same basic components to do one job: carry sound from your outer environment to your brain. They use tiny microphones with a small computer chip that amplifies the sound, making it easier for you to hear.
While all hearing aids have the same basic function, fitment will vary across different styles. It’s important to know the differences to ensure you’re able to choose the right hearing aid for you. Let’s take a look at some different styles.
(A) Completely in the canal (CIC)
(B) In the canal (ITC)
(C) In The Ear (ITE)
(D) Behind the ear
Now that you understand the different styles of healing aids, consider the features that are most important to you. Features like noise reduction, directional microphones, rechargeable batteries, and direct audio input won’t be available in every style of hearing aid. Make sure you have a happy balance of comfort and featured when selecting the hearing aid that’s right for you.
