Various Types of Hearing Aid Models
Hearing aids generally come in one of four main models:
The functioning unit is located behind the ear. The digitally corrected sound is brought into the ear via a tiny, clear tube that is nearly invisible. A soft silcone "dome" at the end of the tube keeps it comfortably in place. These units are very easy to handle and clean, though some may not like a hearing aid that is visible outside of the ear.
These hearing aids are located in the outer ear. Less visible than the BTE models, but still large enough for easy handling.
ITC and CIC (In-the-canal, and Completely-in-the-Canal)
These hearing aids are located mainly (ITC) or totally (CIC) in the canal of the ear. Nautrally, this makes them the most appealing model to most clients, but it should be considered that some may have difficulties cleaning or handling the aids. A tiny, barely visible nylon wire pokes out just enough for the wearer to pull on to remove the aid after it's been inserted.
Digital Hearing Aid Features
Fitting a prescription
We sometimes say that hearing aids "amplify" sound, but they actually do more than just that. Today's digital hearing aids now adjust the sound so that it's right for you. That means increasing the volume in only the specific range of frequencies that you're missing. This gives the wearer a much more natural sound.
In short, this allows the wearer to hear better on the phone, in movie theatres, places of worship, and lecture halls.
It works by picking up on the magnetic disturbances that are producted alongside the sound generated by electronics. The hearing aid takes this magnetic info to be "what you really are intending to listen to" and then amplifies that signal instead of the ambient noise around you (like people talking, or echos).
Unlike with the T-Coil, the directional microphone helps users hear better along a particular direction. Sound directly in front of the wearer is amplified more than surrounding noise.
This automatically reduces feedback noise which would otherwise distort the sound you hear
Bluetooth and other direct audio
When people say "Bluetooth", they are referring to technology that allows one electronic device to communicate and replay information to another. For example, todays digital hearing aids are Bluetooth-equipped to allow them to receive their audio information directly from, say, a phone, a television, a tablet, or other audio device. This provides the hearing aid a much more reliable source of sound and the wearer gets a richer sound experience.
It's worth mentioning that with technolgies like Bluetooth and Directional Microphones we're now able to give people MORE than what nature intended! Most people without a hearing loss would certainly enoy the ability to hone in on specific sounds and eliminate unwanted ambient clamour!

Free 60-day Trial
Adjusting to a hearing loss or a new hearing prescription can be challenging for some. There are so many forgotten ambient sounds to refamiliarize yourself with (like passing cars and ceiling fans). This period is also when you'll get a sense for your own level of comfort with the aids themselves (cleaning and handling them). With all that going on, the last thing you need to worry about is a contract or commitments.
We'd like you to enjoy your two-month adjustment period free of worries or the stress of having to make a commitment. Just relax and enjoy the gift of sound. If you aren't completely satisfied with your hearing aids after the trial period, simply return them and we're done!
