A hearing aid is an electronic device that uses a microphone to collect sound and a computer chip to amplify those sounds. This tiny computer analyzes the sounds and, based on your specific hearing loss, adjusts the volume of those sounds and delivers them into your ears. Properly adjusted hearing aids can make a world of difference in your ability to hear what’s going on around you. That’s why it’s so important to visit a qualified audiologist like Sound Decision Hearing Aid Centers. We will analyze your hearing loss to determine which hearing aid is right for you make sure it is adjusted correctly.
There are many different types, styles and technologies of hearing aids, all of which fit into two categories: inside the ear and behind the ear. Behind The Ear Hearing Aids are for all types of hearing loss from mild to profound. BTEs come in a variety of styles from miniature to larger high-powered hearing aids. Many BTE hearing aids offer multiple directional microphone systems for improved understanding of speech in noisy situations. After your hearing evaluation, we will be able to determine if BTEs are a good choice for you. In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids are also known as custom hearing aids. They are individually manufactured to fit your ear. They range from invisible in-the-canal (IIC) hearing aids to full-shell hearing aids. ITEs deliver remarkable acoustical performance and are appropriate for mild to severe hearing loss. ITEs are almost invisible and are great for people with an active lifestyle. Your hearing evaluation will tell us if ITEs are right for you.
